TEAM Service 31st August

The parishes of Platt, Ightham, Wrotham and Borough Green will join together in Platt church for a service of Holy Communion.

This occasion will be somewhat sad as we bid our farewells to Canon Brenda Hurd, Rector of Wrotham, and Revd Stephen Jones, Rector of Ightham, both of whom will be retiring within a few weeks. We have very much enjoyed sharing services, festivals, study groups and plenty of good times together with them. In thanking them for all they have contributed to our TEAM of parishes, we wish Brenda and Dave and Stephen and Jill very many happy years of retirement. We will miss them.
