Paul's Letter

With the season of lent upon us Paul set about decluttering his filing cabinet and suggests that we do similar, as Lent "offers us all an opportunity to reflect upon our lives, the life of our world and our place within it as children of God and disciples of Jesus Christ and prepare for the journey ahead which will lead us into Easter and beyond."


Come and chat

As you may know, we have spent more than we would have liked to recently because of defects in the building. First was the soggy Coffee Lounge floor which, after a couple of expensive false starts, we now seem to have a solution which is working.

We are now in the middle of trying to fix leaks in the 1930's plumbing in the hall where a few exploratory holes have been drilled. Our main problem here is we don't know where the pipes run but we are in the process of trying to map out the circuit.

All this costs money which is why we have joined the "easyfundraising" scheme where, by shopping online via one of over 3,500 retailers, those retailers will donate a percentage of the sale to our fund at no cost to the shopper or to ourselves.

For more information and to join the scheme please go to our Fundraising web page.

Coffee and Chat Extra

Come and chat

Anyone who fancies a cup of tea or coffee, a slice of cake and a chat is welcome to come along. If you or someone you know is lonely, at a loose end, just passing the church or simply wanting a chat, you are welcome to pop in and join us - the more the merrier!

We meet from 2.30 to 4pm on Fridays on the following dates,

  • 29th March
  • 12th April

Big Brunch

Please note that, due to a clash of bookings, we have had to move the date of the final brunch of winter, from March 16th to April 6th. A full English breakfast costs £4 but other options are available. We look forward to seeing you there, between 10.30am and 1pm.

A Greek Themed Lunch

Big Brunch

You are invited to a Greek Themed Lunch on Sunday 19th May 2019 at 12.30pm. There is no charge for the meal but we would be grateful for donations in aid of the Coffee Lounge floor.

The sign-up sheet is on the noticeboard opposite the Christian Care Office, please put your name down by 12th May so I know how many to cater for. As an added bonus there will be a showing of the film Mamma Mia (the first one) in the church after lunch. Please come along to both the lunch and the film show for a fun afternoon.
