Joint Service June 24

The Next Mission Community Joint Service.
At St. Michael and all Angels, Beetham on Sunday 9th June.


Following the enthusiastic support of singers from around the Mission Community last year for Hannah’s Ordination, the KEMC Choir are coming together again to rehearse ahead of the United Mission Community Service at St Michael & All Angels, Beetham on Sun 9th June (10.30am). 

If you would like to join the choir (new singers welcome!) for this occasion, then please get in touch with Geoff Field –

Rehearsals at Beetham church – Fri 24th May 5-6pm, Sun 26th May 4.30-5.30 (with the option of staying on to sing Evensong with the Beetham choir at 6pm) & Sun 9th June 9-10am.

The choir will be leading the singing of the hymns, the eucharistic setting (Thorne) and an anthem by Mendelssohn. Should be lovely!

Lent Course 2024



Following the need to postpone the previous event, a new date has been rearranged for Saturday 21st October at M: HUB in Milnthorpe (10.00am -3.00pm). Please put the date in your diaries now. Growbag is an opportunity to come together as a Mission Community (together with help from the Northern Mission Centre in the Diocese) to reflect on the different ways available to us to share the good news of God as we seek to draw people – in new ways – into the life of the church. Lunch will be provided, and we’ll have the opportunity to hear from different speakers to help guide and hopefully inspire our thinking and reflecting. The day is open to everyone, so please do think about coming along.

A message from Hannah

A message from
the Rev’d. Hannah Wallace

“Joyous!”, “Lovely!”, “Overwhelming!” 
These are words that people have repeatedly used this week to describe the events of last Sunday (the last word mainly used by me!). Besides the incredible gift of the Holy Spirit’s presence with us that morning and God’s unending great faithfulness, the reason it was such a wonderful event was because YOU made it so! I’d like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE THANK YOU to you all – for supporting me and my family in prayer & in presence, for all those who prepared for and took part in both the service and the fabulous lunch, for all those working behind the scenes and in front from start to finish, and for the incredibly generous cards and gifts. It was the most memorable day, and my heart is filled not just with thankfulness for this calling to priesthood and all that means, but for the love and support of this wonderful Mission Community and all that lies ahead for us. 
Heart of our own hearts, whatever befall, 
be Thou our vision, O Ruler of all.

With love, Hannah, Greg, Sam & Bethan
