Parking at the Sunday 10:00am Service

It would be a great kindness
if the kerbside nearest the church porch(usually marked with cones)
could be left for drivers and their passengers
who need easy access to church.

Thank you in anticipation.

Church Wheelchair

This seems to have gone walkabout.

If you know anything about it, please speak to Edgar.

Thank You

to all of you
for your kind thoughts, gifts and prayers
on our retirement,
and particularly for the very generous cheque
which will be so helpful when we finally move!

Church Cleaning: Volunteers Urgently Needed

Pauline would dearly like help with the church cleaning 
which she had previously been doing almost single-handedly.

Some volunteers have kindly come forward,
but more are needed.

Ideally, she would like to hear from people prepared to
form teams of two for the cleaning of church and vestry
one week every month.

If you can help, please speak to her -
and make her a very happy bunny!
