These will start with a Gift Day on 30th November, and then Gatton Community Theatre performing The Nativity, a contemporary retelling of the original Christmas story, on 4th January, 2015. Details of both will be found in the November magazine and in Pews News. Tickets for the dramatised reading will be on sale shortly. In addition to those publications, if you would like to be kept informed of activities via email, please send your email address to [email protected] to help us build a mailing list, adding to those addresses we have received via feedback forms. These will not be used for anything other than fundraising related matters, but might prove a useful way of helping you to spread the word about our project to friends outside the church community.

A current member of the team will guide any new recruits as to what is required. Please contact one of the wardens if you can help. Many thanks. We need a third person to help prepare the bread and wine for the 10.30am service. Cover is needed on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Margaret Davis or Janet Watson would work alongside you until you are happy with the preparation. We also need at least one more person to cover the 5th Sunday, holidays and sickness. If you would like to join the team please speak to Janet or Margaret or contact one of the church wardens. Car Lift Service: There is a small team of people who give lifts, on a rota basis, to those who would otherwise find it difficult to come to church services and functions.
