25 November: Don't forget our Festival of Carols

We will be holding a Festival of Carols on 9/10/11 December, and would like your contributions to make the event a success. Please see our What's On page for fuller details, and forms where you can sign up to participate.

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.

18 November: Church Christmas Card

It’s that time again. I will be compiling the Square Christmas Card again this year. Please start thinking about your contribution and send them to me as soon as possible. Any donations you wish to make should be in a marked envelope and added to the collection plate. I have not worked out the last date for sending your message but it will be mid-December so don’t delay.

2 November: Prayer at the Square

Ivor has suggested we reinstate the monthly prayer meeting on the first Monday of each month.  With this in mind, we are planning to meet and pray on Monday, 7th November at 7pm in the vestibule.  This meeting is open to everyone; all are welcome.  Ivor has mentioned he is happy to offer lifts if you are otherwise unable to go.

We hope to be able to share in prayer with you.  If you have any prayer requests, we are happy to receive them.  Hope to see you there!

Also available on Zoom - Please see the link in the Square Support Group on WhatsApp, or contact someone who is in that group.


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.

To read more, see the full message from MHA (Methodist Homes).
