Benefice Update 

 Benefice Update: Although the Benefice of Blandford Forum and Langton Long continues to exist, from May 1st Pastoral Responsibility for the provision of worship at Langton Long will be provided by the Revd Carolyn Couzens, the Priest-in-Charge of Lower Stour Benefice. A Warden/Treasurer/Secretary meeting was held on April 19th, chaired by Carolyn, to decide on arrangements from May 1st.
The office administration for Langton Long will transfer to the administrator of Lower Stour but the Weekly Church News will continue to include Langton Long information and Langton parishioners will continue to receive it via email.
Blandford will continue to provide support to Archbishop Wake School which lies in the parish of Langton Long.
Joint activities between the parishes, e.g. Community Kitchen, Joint Socials, Lent Lunches, will continue where and when appropriate.
