Church Magazine – Summer Edition
Preparations for the Summer edition of the Church Magazine are starting.
A folder has been placed in the Front Vestibule of the church and anyone who has an item (poem, article, prayer etc.) that they wish to
be considered for inclusion in the Spring or other editions of the magazine is asked to place it in the folder. . Items may also be sent directly to the editors, Jenni & Patrick Jones, at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the magazine of your church. It is also circulated to many people who either never or very seldom come to worship with us. By submitting your own articles these people will see that we have an active congregation which might encourage some of them to come and join us in worship.
The deadline for receipt of articles is Monday 2 September.
