20 May: Church Visitors

Dear Members. Since Covid we have quite a few Church Visitors who have had to retire, due to health or age reasons. We thank them for their service.

However this leaves us short of Visitors. If you think you would be able to be a Visitor to a few Members, who you probably already know, please contact Bridget on 01582 527459.

12 May: Cake/Bake Sales

We are endeavouring to raise funds to enable a few young people from our church to go on an overseas trip to Italy for a Christian Camp hosted at a Baptist Evangelical Centre. Claudia is leading this international camp and it would be great to give this opportunity to some of our young people. To assist with their costs, we are holding cake/bake sales after the services on 4th and 25th June.  If you are able to bake or supply a cake/biscuits that would be great.  If you cannot supply, could you please consider buying. I am sure they will be delicious and all funds will go directly towards the air fares of the young people.

Any help would be gratefully received.

5 May: The Living Room

Although ‘The Living Room’ is no longer required as a Warm Space, it has proved to be a popular place for people to come for a chat and something to eat. Therefore the team of volunteers are going to continue by offering free hot drinks, cake and sandwiches. In addition a selection of craft activities will now be available. You are welcome to come and see us on a Friday between 10.30am and 1.30pm, or if you are interested in volunteering then please drop in for a chat.

5 May: Café Worship

If you think Café Church may not be for you, perhaps you would do well to read these comments from people who have been, and this perspective from Claudia Lupi.

30 April: Gift Aid

Ivor would like to remind us all about Gift Aid: this is Government money to increase donations received from those who have completed a Gift Aid declaration form. This is an extra £2.50 for each £10 donated by a member of the congregation. In addition, we can also claim Gift Aid on any loose cash in the collection plate, irrespective of whether the donor pays tax. I am delighted that donations in the collection plate have doubled this year to over £6,000, worth £7,500 when Gift Aid is added, and shows the value of taking up a collection at every service.
