Changes to Services at Dedham Church.
May 2017

You will probably know that Dedham and Ardleigh are now working together as a joint Benefice. To make the pattern of services work now that we are sharing one full time minister the PCCs have agreed to make some changes to the current pattern. Dedham and Ardleigh will be sharing the morning services which will alternate between the churches from week to week. There will be an 8 o'clock service in the benefice each week, and the 10.30am services will move to 11.00am. Please see the table below which gives you the monthly pattern.  This will start in May and for a trial period of 6 months initially. If you have any queries please contact the parish office.
