Menston Parish Church Survey
St John's Church is here to serve everyone in the parish of "Menstone with Woodhead".
Our Vicar, Rev'd. Ruth Yeoman is leaving shortly and the Church of England ensures that there is a gap between vicars to allow the new one to start afresh. This survey of local residents is part of our information gathering as we start the search for a new vicar. All questions are optional and can be anonymous but if you leave your name and contact details we can get in touch. Parish Office 01943 872433
