Help Needed

  • The rota for welcoming for the next 4 months is on the welcome desk. Please, if you can welcome others into the Church, could you put your name on the rota. Thank you.
  • Booking Secretary: We discussed at Stewards' meeting that it would be really helpful to have a booking secretary for the Church.  This would involve taking bookings for the Church and communicating with those who book the Church. At present this is being done by Ralph. Is there  someone could relieve Ralph of this role? If you would like more details please talk to Ralph or one of the stewards.

Thanks

  • To everyone who counts the collections weekly.

Please could you contact Doreen at doreen.hocking@btinternet.com with anything for the newsletter. Thank you.
