Your church needs YOU! - Summer Fair, Saturday 5th August 2017


Please be available to help on this important day in our church calendar - see Chris Liggins if you can help, whether for all or part of the day.

Plus, it’s never too early to gather up those items you no longer need, which could make good prizes or be sold on the White Elephant stall.

You may have noticed that we have cordoned off the area around the Church Tower. Our cross is mounted on two wooden beams that have become rotten and we are in the process of commissioning steeplejacks to remove the cross and side panels ready for repairs and refurbishment of the tower.

Please keep our architects Peter Rogan and Richard Brook, together with our Steeplejack, Pete Simmons, in your prayers for a successful and safe project. See pictures of the work being carried out HERE

Church car park - following an unfortunate incident in the car park, when a car was broken into, may we remind people not to leave any items on car seats where they can be seen.
