Pastoral VisitsThe Minister asks that he would be kept informed of any member of the congregation who is ill, in hospital or would welcome a visit from him.

 

 

New Communicant MembersAny Adherent who would wish to become a full communicant  member of the church should speak to the Minister at the end of the service or contact him by telephone.   We would dearly love to see more Adherents take up full communicant membership of the church and take Communion.

 

 

Church Magazine :  Preparations for the Easter edition of the Church magazine are underway.    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 Easter or other editions of the magazine is asked to place it in the folder.

 

The closing date for articles is 25 April but earlier receipt would be appreciated.
