Archdeacon Jonathan Smith visits St Ippolyts Church.

The Archdeacon's Inspection was this year actually carried out by the Archdeacon. We were blessed with Archdeacon Jonathan Smith the Archdeacon of St Albans visiting our churchwardens Jane and Michael on Friday 31st July to inspect our parish records and documentation. After giving us a clean bill of health he proceeded to inspect the church building itself to make sure we are looking after the church property in a fit manner.
