Sydney gdns Feb 2020 update
Next month is the 200th anniversary of the consecration of our Parish Church, St Mary’s Bathwick.
On Sunday 2nd February the Bishop of Bath and Wells, the diocesan bishop, is leaving his palace in Wells and coming to St Mary’s to be the celebrant at the 10.30am Sunday Service – the “Dedication Festival Service”.
There will be music in the church, and canapes in the church hall after the Service. Parishioners, and the residents of Bathwick Hill in particular are invited to be curious, to meet a real live bishop in the flesh, and to participate in the event.

The university is unsure how many staff will be out, but the university will be open and it will be picketed, so they anticipate some disruption, particularly on the 25th Nov. which may affect traffic and bus services on Bathwick Hill.
