THANK YOU

Valerie and David thank the church family for its love and delight at our wedding and for making it such a glorious and happy occasion.  Your cards, flowers and individual expressions of joy have made us realise how precious is our church family and we pray for Divine guidance as to how our family can best be nurtured and grown so that that same love, expressed by Jesus for all, may become more widely known in our local community.

Mr & Mrs Gane

THANK YOU

I would like to thank my church family for all the lovely flowers, cards, emails and phone calls I received during my stay in hospital.  It was a great comfort to know so many people cared.  I am now home and making a good recovery.  With love.

CIRCUIT PRAYER DIARY

Copies of the January prayer diary are now available in the foyer.

LITTLE LAMBS

We are short of helpers to make the refreshments in the kitchen or be a friendly face in the hall on a Tuesday morning.  If you have a couple of hours to spare PLEASE consider joining the team.  For further details speak to Elaine Phillips or Carole Barnett.

SUNDAY STEWARDS

We are also short of Sunday Stewards.  PLEASE consider helping out on a Sunday.  For further details speak to Elaine Phillips.

CRAFT GROUP

The Wednesday Craft Group has now resumed. Please recycle your Christmas cards to us and any unused Christmas paper.  We are also in need of old CDs, bottle tops, wool, material, old costume jewellery and any sewing box items, so we can start again making items for shoeboxes.  There is a container in the church foyer for any donations.
