Many thanks to all who give to FoodBank; the church remains open for donations, which are just keeping up with the increasing need. The main requests are still for tinned meat and fish and vegetables — and for custard powder! They are still desperately needed; especially now. For the latest shortages please click here.
Thank you.

Bishop Dagmar has issued the attached Bishop’s Pastoral Order for the parishes of Girton and Madingley. The effect of it is that Girton and Madingley remain separate parishes, but the same person will be incumbent of both of them. This perpetuates the situation which existed when Mandy Maxwell was our Rector (but we expect that the new incumbent will take regular monthly services at Madingley, which Mandy used not to do).
