ECO CONGREGATION: We are pleased to report a number of organisations are now using the china cups for tea/coffee after the services.
As an Eco-Congregation since 2010 it was proposed that paper cups be phased out. The washing of cups should not be too onerous, as it takes only 20 minutes, but if some groups find it too difficult a member of the Eco Group is willing to help.
Thank you for your continued co-operation. The Eco Group

Anyone needing wool or needles can find them on the table outside the church office – please help yourself. Finished shawls can be fringed by those who make them in way they wish. Thank you to everyone who is knitting, or has donated needles and work for this Ministry your kindness has already brought comfort.
