From 25th May to 4th June we will be joining in with a prayer initiative that the Archbishop of Canterbury has developed. It follows the theme of “Thy Kingdom Come”. We are invited to joins thousands of other Christians between Ascension Day and Pentecost Sunday in setting aside a time each day to pray for God’s kingdom to come. As a church we will be holding a daily time of prayer entitled “11 Days at 11”. You are invited to join this in the church room whenever you can at 11am during the 11 days. More details will follow nearer the time.

Stewards

We are reviewing our rota of stewards who assist in our Sunday services. We would like to reach the stage where each group of two stewards are only on duty once every two months. To achieve this, we need a few more people to volunteer to join the rota. Please would you think and pray about this, and consider whether you would be able to become one of our stewards.
