Many of you will know that the Square has 'adopted' the refugees currently living in the Holiday Inn. If you have any large holdalls, cases, rucksacks, or backpacks for school, these would be most welcome. We also have a request for a sewing machine, if anyone knows of one going spare. Please contact Claudia Lupi or Linda Berry.

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to making this event such a success. Such a success that we're already coming up with ideas for repeating it next year but bigger and better! So those of you whose crafting skills need a longer preparation time take note...

25 November: Advent message from Claudia

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.

11 November: Youth Club

We are excited to announce the launch of a new youth club (name yet to be confirmed) on a Friday evening between 6pm-8pm. Young people between the ages of 11-18 are welcome to attend. If you would be interested in joining the leadership team for this venture, please contact Rev Claudia Lupi. We are aiming to start in the new year.

The Youth Club will he held on the last Friday of each month.

25 November: 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.
