Good news as Mansfield Church announces new collective name for ‘St John’s with St Mary’s’ as ‘Christ the Light’!

The occasion was a Family Fun Day on Sunday 9th June in the grounds and church of St John’s, Mansfield. The event – sandwiched between wet and windy weather on the Saturday and Monday – was a day bathed in sunshine and fun!

All the usual fun activities with bouncy castles, crafts, games, music, barbecue, and cream teas in church, was all free – and over 400 people turned up to enjoy the fun.
