We have just appointed a project architect for some work on the church, especially improvements to: toilet facilities, the kitchen, the parish room and side chapel, the entranceway, heating, lighting, storage, the churchyard and interior decoration. His name is Adam Richards. Adam and his colleague Giles have just started work on a feasibility study for this work. This will lead to a masterplan, on the back of which we'll then be fundraising. Please pray for this process and for those involved, and feed in your thoughts when we start consulting properly with the congregation, our existing users, and the local community.

We are commissioning a 4th modern stained glass window for the church, this one in memory of June Pipe (who was a longstanding member of the congregation). Please keep the artist Piotr Frac in your prayers as he starts work on the window.

Some people choose to give to the church using weekly envelopes. You choose how much you'd like to give each week. If you'd like to join this scheme, please speak with Andrew or Gill.

Please have a look at the Creationtide display at the back of church. Many thanks to Gerry for putting it together.

Night Shelter. If you would like to volunteer please email John Alty on
