APOLOGIES: I have caused some confusion by inadvertently putting the wrong service time on weekly notes. The remembrance service time was changed to 10.00am but all other Sunday services will begin at 10.30am.





CHRISTMAS FAYRE – There will be a small selection of Christmas cards and other gifts available in church over the next few weeks.  This year’s Church Card can be ordered and will be available for collection in church the week after the order is received.


FOOD BANK – We are collecting food and Christmas goodies for the food bank. Please leave your donation at the back of church.


Fran is once again preparing to make blankets for the People’s Kitchen.  She will welcome any donations towards the cost. Please hand your offering to a member of the craft group as soon as possible.
