The Parishioner - the home of the Yarpole Parish Magazine, for news, view events, comments, church services and much more.
The Parishioner has existed in its present form since the beginning of 2011, but there has been a Yarpole parish magazine for many years, with several different editors and changes in format. 360 copies are printed which go out to every household in the parish. 6 audio copies are also produced by the RNIB for parishioners with visual impairments.
