The Amazing Grace New Year’s Day Service. 1st January 2023

The first of January marks exactly 250 years to the day since John Newton delivered his “Amazing Grace” sermon.

To mark the occasion, there will be a New Year’s Day Service at St. Peter St. Paul’s Church from 10:00. We are delighted that the Rt Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin who is the Bishop of Dover and the Bishop in Canterbury will be the preacher for the service.  Bishop Rose is also Patron of the Milton Keynes Friends of the Caribbean.

The Olney Combined Churches Choir will be performing and the congregation will, of course, be invited to join together in singing the hymn, Amazing Grace.

All are welcome – please send St Peter & St Paul an email to book a place

This will not be a communion service.
