Dr Mary-Rose Shears Staffing the NHS in the 21st century

The media loves stories about health care, mostly about new, expensive tests and treatments, usually provided by hospitals. There is also doom and gloom stories about lack of nurses and doctors. Dr Shears will review the NHS workforce from the perspective of primary care to illustrate the breadth and potential of health care in the community. She is a GP in Seaford and currently Care Dean for Health Education England. For more information, please email:

MONICA BOTTING – SERVICE OF THANKSGIVING for her life. St Anne’s on Friday 27th May at 2.30 p.m. All are welcome.

CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER is every Tuesday at 7pm. This is a simple and profound way to meet with God in silence and stillness.

TEA/COFFEE ROTA Volunteers needed to help with tea and coffee after the 10am service on Sundays. This is not a difficult task, and you're not expected to do it every week. Please speak to Liz (Trott) for more information.
