Gift Day

It’s our annual Gift Day on 11th October and it’s a great time to review and renew your giving to the church.  We’re so aware that for some of us this year finances will be under real pressure and therefore it will be difficult to give any more than we are already.  For others we will be privileged enough to be in a position to give generously.  I’d like to encourage us to do just that – especially as others in our community may start to feel the pinc...

The Flood of 2019!

Yesterday one of our drains blocked outside the church and a flood of water flowed down the steps by the stage into the church hall.  We are so grateful that the marvellous Kelcey from YWAM who cleans for us turned up when she wasn't scheduled to be there and discovered it!  Thanks also to Glenn, Chris  and Caroline for assisting in the clean up operation!  Last time we had a flood like this back in 2016 we had to shut the hall for 6 months while the entire floor was replaced...
