Welcome to St Benedict’s


  • Rosemary Turnbull

    Rosemary’s family reports that Rosemary died peacefully on Thursday night (30th June) at 10.15pm following a few days of heart and blood pressure problems.

    Rosemary was a much loved member of our church who shared her love of music with us for many years as she sang in our choir and played the organ to lead our worship. She also wrote music for hymns, worship songs and a setting of the Eucharist which are played and sung in St Ben’s from time to time and by which we will continue to remember her with love and great fondness.

    Rosemary’s wish was to join her husband, Revd James. May she, with him, rest in peace and rise in glory.
