The Salisbury Diocese link with the Sudan

The Sudan features often in our prayers and the Sarum Link Diocesan Newspaper.

Bread & Cheese Lunches

We run a Bread and Cheese Lunch after the morning service once a month, normally on the third Sunday in the month. These are an informal time when we get to share a simple meal and give the cost of our normal Sunday lunch to the work of Tear Fund.
