THERE ARE NO PLANS TO UPDATE IT

Since the Millennium survey, there have been many changes.  There is a shortage of religious leaders and the congregations are reduced.  Many parishes have amalgamated to form new parishes and many Churches have closed.  If intending to write to a Church for information, please address your letters to the "Priest or Vicar in charge" otherwise your communication may be considered to be personal and returned or forwarded to a retired person.
