Dates of course Tuesday evenings – September 24th, Oct 1st 8th,22nd, 29th, Nov 5th, 12th 19th, 26th,  Dec 3rd

Do you have a room big enough to sit 18 people for a light supper? If so would you be willing to host the Alpha course at your home? While this is a big commitment it is a great way of serving those who come along to find out more about the Christian faith. If you think it may be something you would be willing to help with please do contact me asap.

I am also looking for people who would be willing to prove the meal each week for the Alpha course. If you would be willing to help please let me know or sign the sheet in the parish centre.  Revd Tonia [email protected].

Everyone’s help needed

If someone in your family or a friend who attends church regularly is unwell and unable to attend, it would really help if you could contact the clergy or the parish office to let us know.

This would enable us to give the appropriate support. Canon Julie

Urgent help required

Do you usually make coffee after 11am services? Could you make coffee for the families attending our 9.30 services once a quarter?

We are really short of helpers at the moment and this is such an important social time. On the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays it’s after the service, around 10am and on 2nd and 4th Sundays we serve during our fun, café church services from 9.15am.

You would be on duty with another volunteer and if you haven’t yet joined the coffee team, we can show you what to do. Please see Nicky Alder or email [email protected] Thank you

Patronal Festival Thanks

A BIG thank you to everyone who supported our Patronal Festival Weekend. The quiz on Saturday night was very well attended and we had lots of lovely compliments about the evening.

Sunday was warm and sunny when the tower was open and lots of cream teas were consumed.

Very many thanks again to everyone who helped make this weekend so enjoyable and successful and we are delighted to say that the profit over the weekend was £1,867.40 a wonderful amount for Parish Funds.
