Service cancellation - Twice this winter the Church Stewards in consultation with the Preacher on the day have had to cancel services due to adverse weather conditions. We use the telephone tree system whereby the Church Stewards inform all the pastoral class leaders which services have been cancelled, who in turn inform everyone in their class. Please make sure that your class leader has your current home/mobile details thus ensuring you being informed of any cancellations. Thank you. If you have any problems, please contact one of the Church Stewards.
