Rector Goes Gliding "for God"!

In May I'll be doing a sponsored glider flight with Burn Gliding Club to raise money for the St Wilfrid's Parish Hall, which although completed, still has a considerable amount still to pay off. If you'd like to help get me off the ground by donating some much needed funds to the Hall Fund, have a chat with me when you see me or contact me at
I'll be getting a sponsorship form together in due course. If you can gift-aid even better!
Thanks a lot
Pete Watson
