Benefice Dates

3rd Nov 11.45am St Peter’s Undercroft
Many will remember David Sheppard, the Bishop of Liverpool who formed a ground breaking partnership with his Roman Catholic counterpart, Archbishop Derek Worlock, a generation ago. For the last 4 years Andrew Bradstock has been researching Sheppard’s biography, and this will be published by SPCK in November under the title Batting for the poor: the authorised biography of the celebrated cricketer and bishop.
Andrew & his wife Helen live in St Helen’s and worship in the benefice, and they would like to invite all who are interested to join them in celebrating the book’s publication with tea and cake in the undercroft at St Peter’s, Seaview, on Sunday morning, 3rd November. Although this will follow the morning 10.00am service, it will be a separate event, starting at 11.45am.
