Calendars & Records: If anyone has yet to pay for Calendars they have taken, or for last year’s church magazine, The Record, please do so as soon as possible.

Online Sermons: Sermons are now being added online weekly.    The morning sermons tend to go up the same day they were preached.   Evening sermons are beginning to be added now also.  You can get them by clicking the ‘Sermons’ tab on our website, which will take you to our YouTube page –  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9E4Fzhc1_UjRBlpR-R6Svw

New Church Fund: The total in the Building Fund at the end of 2018 was £186,000.   This was after paying out more than £11,000 in bills. So, the total raised was just slightly short of our £200k target for the year.

Church Finances: The Deacons Court would encourage those who contribute to the church to consider doing so by Standing Order.   We would also urge anyone who pays tax to consider signing a Gift Aid form. This allows the church to get an additional 25% from the government, on any donations you make

Easy Fundraising:  We now have an easyfundraising account for the New Church fund.   If you shop online, the church can gain a donation for every purchase you make from numerous retailers, at no cost to you.   You can sign up at the following site easyfundraising.org.uk    then follow the simple instructions to join. This service is free every time for both yourself and the church.
