Do remember that we are a collection point for your foodbank donations.

Unfortunately, donations have dropped recently, just as more are needed. We  know everyone is affected by the increase in living costs but if you are able to donate the odd item it would be very much appreciated.

We have now got a basket on the counter with some second-hand books & CDs in. We have plenty of stock at the moment, but if you are clearing out books, we are interested in popular Christian books – Fiction and Non Fiction in very good condition.

Prayer Breakfasts

It’s good to see all our regular attendees at our monthly prayer breakfasts. However, due to holidays, we won’t be meeting in person on 13th August, but a contemplation and list of prayer needs will be sent round beforehand to our regular attendees. Our next in-person meeting will be on 10th September.

We had a brilliant term of Make and Bake this term and we have sadly said goodbye to a number of children who will be starting school in September. We restart the new term on 9th September, 9.30-11am. and it would be great to welcome some new children.
