Fantastic start to our ‘One Body’ series last night with Fr Tom Shufflebotham SJ (Jesuits in Britain) giving us a wonderful balance of Jesuit history and Ignation Spirituality.

In May we started a second Seekers group based in a different Parish – St Andrew’s in Cottam. It is early days and it has had a bit of a slow start but we are hopeful that when we return in September it will go from strength to strength.
