    Our Stewardship Campaign

    Since May, we have been asked to consider the level of our regular giving to the church in the light of our current financial situation. Click on this link to see more.  The indications are that there has been a most generous response and we shall be thanking God and you for this at our services on Sunday next, 24th September. So if you want to know the result that is the day to come along.

    Toilet Twinning

    During July and August, we 'kept going' and filled the green boxes in our toilets with small change, and bought dontated toiletries.The boxes have been collected, blessed and counted.  We hoped to raise £240, but final total was an amazing £600!

    Thank you all for your generosity.
