St Ippolyts Church APCM

Our annual parochial church meeting scheduled for 14th April is cancelled on advice from the Diocese of St Albans. With the coronavirus problems each church has had the period within which the APCM must be held extended until 31st October 2020. In the meantime the currently elected PCC and Deanery Synod represenatives will remain in place until after the APCM. Our two churchwardens will remain in postion at least until the next Archdeacon's Visitation which probably will not take place until the New Year i.e. 2021!

The Church Annual report and Accounts are currently being finalised and these will be issued to the Diocese of St Albans in due course.

BIRD WATCHING AND NATURE CHURCH

******************************************************************* 

BIRD WATCHING AND NATURE CHURCH 

Look out for our “bird watching and nature church” on Sunday 17th May at 7.45am. We will be meeting outside St. Ippolyts Church for a short walk around St. Ippolyts looking for spring migrants and resident birds that should be in full swing rearing their young. Michael Hooper who will point out as many bird species as possible will lead the group. Do you think we can see over 25 species? Of course we can! It is expected the one-mile walk will last about 75 minutes and will finish back at the church. Everyone, young or not so young, is welcome to join us.
