Opening the Church – The church building and garden are open to all on Tuesday and Friday mornings between 10 am and 12 noon. Please add your name to the rota in the church vestibule if you are available to help.

Project Ecuador – There is a place for donations to be made on leaving the service to support this project which sponsors children’s education.   During the pandemic, children had to stay at home and their high school was unoccupied. Everything has been stolen – from computers to light bulbs-  and the teachers have asked for donations to help to re – equip the school.

One reply on “15th August 2021”

Lovely service, lovely church. But too much echo online making it difficult for elderly ears to hear without straining. and therefore more difficult to concentrate on the sermon. Perhaps a clip-on microphone would help deaden the echo
