In the Parish of ABE we aim to make faith, fellowship and fun accessible for the over 50s.  

We have a number of events going on each month to which everyone is welcome and which attract a large number of people.  We also are committed to the Pastoral Care of the senior members of our community through our ministry in people’s homes and in the local residential and nursing care homes.  

We also have good links with the Village Friends who do a great deal of work with people of all ages in the three Villages we serve.  Use the links to the right to find out more.  You can also find lots of community events in the latest edition of Parish News our Parish Magazine (link on the right).
