English Parish Churches 1 & 2

The two EPC groups will be amalgamated from October onwards, so there will no longer be separate EPC1 and EPC2 groups.

A Zoom meeting will be offered in the morning and a live meeting at Quorn in the afternoon. Members will be able to choose which each month. The talk will be identical, which will save me a lot of time producing two talks. Any non-EPC members will continue to be welcome at the Zoom option.

See below for details of meetings: October to December
