Our annual parish lunch for Christian Aid will be held this year on Sunday, 14th May after the 11am service. The usual tea and coffee will be served together with a light lunch to raise funds for Christian Aid. This event has been very well supported in the past and we hope that many parishioners will be able to join us this year again. It is our main fund raising event during Christian Aid Week. Contributions towards the lunch will be most gratefully received. Please let Traudi know if you can help in any way. Finger food like pies, sandwiches, sausages, savoury tartlets, buns, and cakes would be most welcome.

We’re pleased (and somewhat relieved) to announce that the heating in the church is back in operation – and the place is warm and cosy! We hope to see you there soon.
We would like to advise all parishioners and visitors that the heating in the church is currently out of order. Unfortunately we expect the repair to take a number of weeks, as a new boiler is required. Please wrap up warmly!
