Message from MHA
Christmas is the time when we celebrate God coming into our midst. For many people, this is a joyful time with family and friends but it can also be isolating for those in later life. Having a cup of tea with some friendly faces, taking a day out, or just chatting on the phone during the festive period is a wish come true for many.
To read more, see the full message from MHA (Methodist Homes).
24 November: Administrator(s) Required
Our church is currently run by a very small crew of volunteers, who consequently are overloaded, which is not good for them!
We are therefore looking to recruit a part-time, paid administrator, initially for 8 hours a week.
And of course, if you can offer some voluntary time to help administer the activities of the church, that would also be most welcome.
In either case, please contact the stewards in the first instance.
