I’m so glad I posted that announcement on Sunday. In conversation with someone else in the diocese yesterday about it, I discovered that another church was also making plans to have the visiting bishops on 13 July in the evening. A mix-up has led to the same event being planned in two different churches at the same time. Futher investigations reveal that the organisers had switched the venue to St Margaret of Scotland, Newlands a while ago.

So, the invite on 13 July is to St Margaret’s, not to St Mary’s. Same event, same bishops, same invitation to all. I expect to be there (they have built a bridge over the river, now, I hear) and we will not hold any Evening service in St Mary’s on that date.

Conspiracy theorists please note that this decision had been taken before +Gene’s visit here had been fixed.
