Services in church We have resumed our small services. Sign up sheets are at the back of church. The church will be open each day for private prayer. We also have other prayer opportunities, including a weekly prayer hub with prayer pointers, and a gathering time online each Saturday at 9.00pm.
Christian Aid envelopes There is a Christian Aid display at the back of church, together with envelopes that can be used for donations. These have details of where to return them. If you have friends, family or neighbours who would be interested in having an envelope, and have the chance to make a Christmas donation, please take an envelope for them.
Care Homes We are currently filling bags for Two Acres and have one more week before completing them. Any further donations would be very gratefully received on the pew at the back of church. Thank you so much for your kindness!
