Service to remember the 250th anniversary of John Newton's curacy

John Newton, most famous for writing the classic hymn, 'amazing grace', is being remembered tomorrow, with a special service being held in Olney to commemorate the 250th anniversary of his curacy in Olney. The service is being held at St Peter & Paul's church in Olney, where he served as curate for 16 years, from 1764. It will be led by the Revd Claire Wood, Vicar of Olney, and is set to begin at 12.30pm. As well as the service, there will also be a presentation on John Newton by the Rev Mike Swales, discussing Newton's life before his arrival in Olney and how he came to be there. All are welcome to join.
