We are using reflections from a booklet called ‘Dust and Glory’, which looks at faith, failure and forgiveness. The booklet is provided. All are welcome – do please consider coming. There is no need to book in advance, and no need to commit to all six sessions. Refreshments provided.

Syria/Turkey Earthquake Appeal

Thanks to all who contributed to the recent Earthquake Appeal. A total of £300 was raised and has been sent to the Disasters Emergency Committee. Robert Francis

Sale of Pews

The small pews from the North Aisle of the church have all been sold, but we have a few from the South Aisle, slightly longer at 6ft 3in. They are made of oak and come with cushions. We sold two at one auction for £75 each, and two at another auction for £95 each, so the suggested donation to the Transformation Fund of £75 is fair.

Delivery can be arranged. If you are interested please contact me on 01480 393 392, otherwise we’ll send them to the auction. Robert Francis
