Fair Trade Fortnight – this starts on Monday 26th and there will be stalls at both of our churches on March 4th and 11th. Please consider supporting them.


Logs – please help yourselves from the lawn by the lych gate path!  Donations to church funds are very welcome; it cost £400 to have the tree cut up, and the Community Payback team are working hard splitting it into logs.


May Fair – if anyone is interested in helping to plan the church tent please speak to Julian.


Testimonies -don't forget that as a church we love to hear a few words about how God has been at work in people's lives recently. Speak to Julian or another minister and they will arrange to fit you jin.
