Greetings to All - As we have done in previous years, I have prepared a place at the back of the church for members to send their ‘greetings’ to friends and, in doing so, give a donation to charity. This year’s charity will be PARKINSONS UK. Please take this opportunity to support the charity and send ‘greetings’ to friends. Thank you. Margaret T.
HARC - The church will be sending a donation to Homeless and Rootless at Christmas, shortly. This charity provides a safe haven for vulnerable and homeless men and women between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day serving three hot meals a day along with other services such as a hairdresser, podiatrist, entertainment and a selection of clothing. They typically serve 2000 meals over the period the project operates when many other agencies are closed. If you would like to support this very worthwhile cause, please see Di or Margaret P.
Amendment to the Christmas Postbox notice. The last collection from the Church Postbox will be on Thursday 19th December at 9:00am. Enid and David.
