We Need Your Help!  During the project to replace our lighting and sound systems, which is due to start in January and finish by Easter, the church will be closed from Monday to Friday (apart from Wednesday evenings) while the contractors get on with their work. 

We are planning to establish a rota of volunteers, willing to give up around 30 minutes of their time on specific Saturday mornings as part of a small team ensuring the church is in a reasonable condition for the weekend services.  The work will mainly involve dusting, sweeping and tidying-up  - no previous experience is necessary, so men and teenagers are welcome to participate, as well as women!

If you feel able to give some time, if only an hour or two, to help keep the church ‘open for business’ from January to March 2018, please sign up on the sheet at the back of church.  Thank you.
