Five friends from Gränna-Visingsö will be visiting us this week, from 10th-12th March. (Many thanks to those who are hosting and helping). Gränna is the parish in the Swedish Diocese of Växjö with which St Mary Magdalene’s is forming a relationship. Håkan Englund, their krykoherde, will be preaching at Woodstock at 11am next Sunday 12th March, so please come along to enjoy his sermon (in English!).
You can see their schedule below. If you would like an informal opportunity to say hello, come and join us for Morning Prayer at 905 on Saturday, and have coffee with us afterwards.
You can see more about the parish of Gränna-Visingsö here.
