HELP: The Church car park was very congested last weekend. Please can you only park in the car park during services if you need to for health reasons.

At the Stewards' meeting, the old office was discussed. It was thought it may be possible to make it into a much-needed storage room. Can you pass any ideas or thoughts please to any of the stewards please?

Help Needed

  • We have an URGENT need for a Church treasurer.
  • Alison Gunderson is sadly leaving the post of Circuit Administrator. The advert for her replacement and application form for the vacancy are on the circuit website. “There is somebody out there who is right for this and will do a brilliant job”.
  • Do you support a particular charity? If so, would you like to do a coffee morning for that charity? There is no one hosting the coffee morning for next week and several weeks in the next few months. If you can help, there is a list in the foyer.
  • If you can help with welcoming on Sundays, please can you put your name by the dates on the list? Thank you.
