MP joins service of celebration at Ambrosden church

Victoria Prentis MP joined the congregation of the Church of St Mary the Virgin’s for their Service of Celebration on 18th June in Ambrosden.

The church held a celebratory service to thank the community for supporting their renovation efforts. The ‘West End’ project was recently completed, bringing together the conclusion of a number of major works at the church. Recent works have included electrical rewiring, redecoration, and the replacement of the chancel roof.

“What a fantastic evening” noted Victoria, “I was grateful for the invitation from the churchwardens and Reverend Canon Charles Masheder. The service led by Bishop Colin Fletcher was full of life. The bishop flushed the new lavatory to prove it worked, before the final hymn!

I always enjoy the chance to see first-hand the results of a strong community-led project. The church is now a fantastic venue for a variety of community events, and I look forward to attending more of them!”
