Terry Curthoys RIP Many of you will already have learnt of the sudden death of

Terry Curthoys - our previous PCC treasurer - and be saddened and shocked by this.

Our prayers go to all of his family at this difficult time. Please join us in our prayers for them. Terry’s funeral will be on Tuesday 22nd at 2pm, St Peter’s Roman Catholic Church.


Thank you, thank you

Thank you to all of you who came and made our wedding day so special. Thank you to those of you that couldn't make it but sent their good wishes and prayers. Thank you to those of you who played a part before, during and after the service. Thank you for an overwhelming number of cards. Thank you to those of you who gave us presents despite us saying no (a couple of presents got separated from cards...). We both feel very honoured and blessed by your support and love and friendship. We had an incredible day and feel well and truly married. Thank you - Matthew and Sally


Life & Learning @ Ludlow is the name of our adult learning programme which seeks to broaden understanding and initiate debate on theology, social issues and the arts. The programme for October 2017 – March 2018 is now available at www.stlaurences.org.uk/lifeandlearning and in leaflet format from the Welcome Table. Open to all people regardless of religious affiliation, please share the programme with those you know who may be interested.


Donations for flowers in church are always gratefully received – dedication forms can be picked up by the pigeon holes at the back of church.  Please put your donation, along with this form, into an envelope marked ‘flowers’ or ‘pew sheet’ and post it into the donations box. (Please be aware that donations will take a week to go through the system so should be made at least a week in advance.)


Rector’s Tea Time There will be no Rector’s tea on 21 August and 4 September.
