2019 Churchwardens Training Day – Saturday 21st September, 9.45am – 3.30pm, Prickwillow Village Hall (Ely, CB7 4UN)

Each year, the Archdeacons host a Churchwardens’ training day which provides a good overview of what to expect when in office.  There will be numerous presentations with the opportunity for discussion and answers to specific questions. The Training Day is for both new and current Churchwardens.  If you know of someone within your parish who might be thinking about serving as a churchwarden in the future, do encourage them to come along too.

To reserve your place please email archdeacons.events@elydiocese.org or telephone the office 01353 652709/652719 (The office is open Monday – Thursday, 9am – 1pm)
