Pastoral Letter detailing the changes to our services.



* March 2021 *

New flooring has been laid at the back of the church to make good the damage caused by the flood. It is of a much higher standard than what was there before and it will serve us well for years to come.  
The foodbank are almost finished installing a partition in the Wesley Hall to create more storage space for their expanded operations and will soon be able to move back into the Foodbank Room (previously called the Youth Room) and the partitioned area of the Wesley Hall.

Wool Drops If anyone would like to do some knitting or craft whilst they are at home I can organise wool, needles, patterns etc to be dropped round. Please email, Kate Rowe via Knit & Natter  to discuss what you would like. You can join in with the Knit and Natter projects, some of which are easy to do, or you can make whatever you like. I can provide some sewing kits as well if you prefer to sew. Craft activities are very good for you, apparently – particularly knitting!
