This is an organisation of well wishers that supports the Church. The principal focus of the Friends' current activities is the promotion of musical events in the Church and the raising of money, at the request of the PCC, to fund the cost of restoration of the Church's pipe organ.
Our last Boon Day was on Friday, 26th April. Here are some of those who helped.
Every five weeks of so a group of helpers, church-goers and non church-goers, meet in St Patrick's church yard at Patterdale, to spend a couple of hours tidying it up. We call these sessions "Boon Days" and they are open to anyone wishing to come along and join us. They are actually good fun and there is satisfaction in seeing the result of two hours collaborative effort. If you would like to try a Boon Day just turn up on the day or give Richard Theobald a ring on 017684 82379 and he will answer any queries you may have. Give it a try?

Contact the Rector:
The Reverend Bill White on 017684 83293
The next PCC meeting will be arranged shortly. The Good Shepherd Team Ministry will cease to be from the 1st May. In its stead will be a grouping of 10 parishes that will share good practice. Our Team Rector, Bill White, will no longer be responsible for St Patrick's. We enter into an interregnum, a period before we appoint a new rector. The Rural Dean, Richard Moatt, will look after us during this time until we have appointed someone to succeed Helen Mary Brett Young. This process is likely to take a few months.
We are most grateful for the help of retired clergy, particularly Bishop Ian Griggs who has taken many services. We have monthly support from the Methodist Circuit and from our Reader, George Theobald, so we are managing to provide a full complement of services, including 8 0'clock communion services on most Sundays where there is no eucharist offered. There is always a service at 11.00am on a Sunday.
The next Committee meeting will be arranged shortly
