It is with great sadness and regret that I have to let members of the parish know that Steve Haude, our much loved virger at St Peter’s Church, died this Sunday afternoon (21st November).
Steve played an invaluable role in the life of St Peter’s Church over many years, and was a great friend to us all. He had taken a major part in the services that morning, including the confirmation service presided over by the Bishop, and had been delighted to see the church so full and busy.
We will of course be hosting a funeral service at St Peter’s in due course to give thanks for his life. In the meantime we will arrange for a Book of Condolence to be available in church this Sunday and thereafter for those who want to record their own tributes or words of farewell.
I am so sorry to be the bearer of this news. Steve was a wonderful, hospitable and generous man, who will be hugely missed.
