Monthly Church Clean-Sweep During the installation of the new lighting and sound systems earlier this year we organised  volunteer church-cleaning sessions that proved very popular.  As a result, we will be running them on an on-going basis, on the first Saturday of each month, starting on 7th July.

No specific experience or skill is necessary – just turn up at 10:15am with a broom and/or duster.  We will be  sweeping the aisles and in between the pews as well as doing some dusting.  We will finish no later than 11:15am and if more than a few people turn up (as has usually been the case) we will probably have completed everything we need to do in around 30 minutes. 

It is a wonderful way to connect to the precious building we are so lucky to have as the focus for our worship.    Give it a try!

READER/INTERCESSOR & EM ROTA – As the summer holidays are now in full swing, please can we remind you that  any duties you are unable to make that you have a swap/cover   in place.  Also the ‘non-availability’ list for the Autumn, September to November, is in the vestry and ask that you complete by 5th August to ensure we can have the rota to each of you in good time.  Thank you all for you continued service and wish      you all a lovely summer.  Teresa & Alan.
