CRAFT EVENINGS for OUR CHRISTMAS MARKET! Next session 25th November. In preparation for our Christmas Market. Bev Samways is running a craft group on alternate Monday evenings. No skills required. Ideas very welcome for easy Christmas crafts making.
NEW – Morning Prayer every Tuesday and Thursday at 8.30 am at the front of church. We made a start in September. There’s a bible reading with time to share thoughts, space to pray together, and reflective time in God’s presence. We hope having more shared prayer here in this church will make a difference to many things. As Matthew Frankum our Area Dean says, ‘Prayer may bring about a future that may not otherwise exist!’ It really is come as you can, we hope it’ll build up over time.
