Veronica's day off is a Friday. The Church Wardens  kindly request that we respect this and avoid disturbing or phoning her on a  Friday unless it is an emergency. It is difficult for to her to get time off with living where she works. If we are mindful of Friday's,  Veronica will get her time off,          she will then be rested and always ready for our needs for the rest of the week.

  Many thanks for your consideration.

Welcome Veronica

Veronica 2 cropA huge welcome to our new vicar, Veronica Green.  Still a curate, Veronica is technically known as our "Curate-in-Charge".  She was licenced in a ceremony at Whitewell on 24th November 2015.  Her friendly, open style is already endearing her to parishioners in all three parishes, and congregations are reported to be on the increase everywhere, as people come in to hear the message of God's Love. 

 In September 2014 Veronica was ordained as a Deacon of Chester Cathedral where she has preached. more

Higher Wych School Charity

The charity supports the educational needs of young people in the township of Iscoyd (essentially Whitewell Parish). In recent months, young people have received financial help with music lessons on piano, flute, and cornet. The Trust has awarded grants to students travelling abroad to further their education. It has provided assistance to students taking up further education at University. It has paid towards additional coaching for students at school and it has even helped someone obtain their HGV licence. If you are a young person who is either living in the Whitewell Parish, or who has a strong connection to it, you too may be eligible for help. In the first instance you should approach Mr Philip Godsal, the Chairman of the Trustees.
