people will be available to pray with you in the north aisle after you have
received communion or after the service.
 Jumble Sale - Friday 6th February 10am - 12md
The first sale of 2015 promises to be a bumper one if the amount of jumble
is anything to go by! We can move the goods from 6.30 pm on Thursday
evening so if you are able to help either then or at the sale we will be very
grateful. In addition I would be really grateful if there is anyone who would
be available to help clear the hall after the sale. At the moment there is only
a very small group of us and we are finding it quite difficult. A couple of
volunteers who are fresh would make all the difference. Please give it some
thought. Looking forward to seeing you all. Margaret
