If you have not already done so, please take the opportunity to look at the photographic display in church showing the extent of the damage to the chancel and boiler house.


A Gentle Reminder
A time to pray or a time to talk?  What do we come to church for? These are very important questions which, as individuals, we need to address.  Yes, we come to be with friends and to meet, but uppermost in our minds has to be that we are here to give thanks to God for what goes on in our lives, and to meet Him in the sacrament.  Please would you remember that others around you like to be quiet and still and not hear others conversing.  This applies not only before the start of worship, but also especially during communion.  This is a time for reflection and to sing the communion hymn.  There is plenty of time at the end of the service to catch up with friends.  THANK YOU.



Friday 19 July The Annual Village BBQ will be held this year at Myre Ash House by kind permission of Alan & Maureen Bell.  More details will follow.
