With the fitting of the new church lighting almost completed, we decided to go ahead with the annual spring clean on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th January. Five men turned up on Thursday afternoon to carry out all the cleaning requiring ladders. More dirt was brought down from the rafters and ledges than in previous years and on Friday afternoon nine members of the Friends (and two extra volunteers!) arrived to sweep, vacuum, mop and polish. By the end of the afternoon a lot had been achieved but three members returned on Saturday morning to continue the hard work polishing, cleaning the baptistry and returning everything from the vestry to the church.
Thank you to all those who gave their time and worked so hard to make the church look spic and span again!
An advertisement for a new vicar has been added to this web site in the 'About" section under Parish Profile.
Vicar for the Benefice of St Ippolyts with Great and Little Wymondley
Together the three parishes form the attractive green cushion between Hitchin, Stevenage and Letchworth Garden City. Though close to these centres, this is a semi-rural benefice with a strong feeling of community. The joint PCCs look forward to welcoming a new vicar to our Benefice.
We are looking for someone who can -
- Lead us joyfully, thoughtfully and wisely into our future worship and community life.
- Engage, stimulate, teach, challenge and work within a framework of central churchmanship.
- Build upon our foundation to widen our age profile and attract and maintain the interest of young people in our churches.
We offer our support, commitment and hard work, plus well established teams that work well together.
A modern 4 bedroomed vicarage is located in the village of St Ippolyts and there are excellent schools in the area together with good transport links to London.

Appointment to this position is subject to satisfactory enhanced disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
The closing date for applications is Friday 12th February 2016 with interviews on 9th March 2016.
