AROUND 300 people are expected to attend a thanksgiving and celebration service on Sunday, January 6, when the Bishop of Exeter will dedicate the new altar at Sidmouth Parish Church.

The Right Reverend Michael Langrish will talk about the church's re-ordering works at the 7.30pm service, which will incorporate Holy Communion.

As the feast of Epiphany, the Rector, the Reverend Prebendary David James, chose the date as a "good time" to celebrate the re-opening of the church after nine months restoration works.

He invited the whole town to attend the service, some with personal invitations, and has had many acceptances.

After the service wine and nibbles will be served to the congregation.
