Church Redecoration and Essential Building Work.
The church premises will have restricted access over August to allow for urgent repair work, sanding and varnishing the Wesley Hall floor and redecoration. There will be no access to the Guild Room, Vestry, Office or Wesley Hall whilst this work is done. It is particularly important that noone accesses the Wesley Hall during this time - to avoid any damage to the new resin surface whilst it cures. The Doug Cox room, kitchen and toilets in this area can still be accessed.
Please see Peter Bond or Eric Wilkinson if you need access over the summer holidays.
Knitted Bible Exhibition
We will be hosting a knitted bible display in the Wesley Hall from 9th October to 14th October- read more about it on our church and circuit page. We are hoping to open for several hours each day / evening so lots of volunteers will be needed as this is a major undertaking for us.
Our ‘Noisy Collection’ for July was for the new circuit charity, Papyrus and raised £100. Thank you for your generous contributions! Save your coins for our next ‘Noisy Collection’
Don't Depair, Text4Prayer - 07452 958 955 - an initiative to be more accessible to those who don't come to church. This allows people to text their prayer requests to a dedicated mobile phone. No confidential information is passed on and any requests are added into the prayer time during the normal church service.
The church centre is also an ideal venue for your weddings, baptisms and other family celebrations. Please contact us to find out more or to book your special event. We can also offer room bookings for local groups/activities.
