Our Bishop’s Committee

Each month, our Bishop’s Committee meets to make resource St. Bede’s for ministry. We break Bread together, pray for guidance by the Holy Spirit, and steward God’s gifts.


Our Wardens

Our wardens help govern our church by listening to our members and the community. They also assist the Vicar in leadership of the Bishop’s Committee.
