A key part of the Visitation Service is the official admittance of Churchwardens to office for the coming year. Also during the service, the Archdeacons will deliver a sermon which offers advice, encouragement and support to parishes in general, in particular the Churchwardens. All services start at 7.30pm.
The Archdeacons will also give every Churchwarden a copy of a magazine called Archdeacons’ Visitation News which will be made available shortly.
