MOBILE PHONES in the Gallery: if you are sitting in the Gallery, please switch OFF your mobile phone during the service, or put it in aeroplane (or flight) mode – not just on silent.  The phones may interfere with the live stream of the service to Youtube.  This applies only in the Gallery, not in the main body of the church.



If you can help serve tea and coffee after church, please sign up on the rota sheet on the notice board in the foyer or contact Margaret Robinson 07714 721748.


We urgently need volunteers for Coffee & Chat on Friday mornings. If you can help, please speak to Barbara McNeill. Your help would be very much appreciated. Thanks Barbara

PIZZA NIGHT – Wednesday 30 August, 5.30 – 7.30pm.
We look forward to welcoming you to the final pizza night of the summer – as part of the team or just for a pizza and some chat. If you haven’t been before, please come along to see what it’s all about!


The Congregational Committee will meet at 7.45 pm in the Megaw Room on Tuesday 12 September.


Our English classes for asylum seekers and refugees restart on 12 and 13 September.  As a pilot we will be offering a Wednesday morning class as well. If you do have any spare A4 ring folders or A4 blocks of paper- we can always put these to good use by giving them to our students!! Many thanks Janet Robinson.
