Monthly Lunch is 31st January. Please order/purchase your 6.50 ticket from Jean Thickbroom no later than Sunday 27th January.


EnvelopesThe 2019 envelopes are now available at the back of church. Would those taking part please pick them up. Anyone wishing to join the scheme, please contact David Pott or Rob Wilde. If you are able to, please consider giving by Standing Order instead. Payment is no different to any other Standing Order scheme through your bank account; it is of much greater benefit to the Church and much easier to administer. Please contact David Pott for more information and bank details. The Church expenditure is constantly increasing, due particularly to increases in the Circuit Assessment and Utility charges. In lieu of this, we have Gift Days on February 23rd and 24th, and any increases in your weekly giving would be much appreciated.


Whatever your method of giving, the Church truly appreciates your contribution and thanks you for your support.


·         Items for Concord close today, so please make sure Rosie has anything you wish to go into your February magazine, thanks.



Know that the Lord is God; it is He that has made us and we
are His; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
