Bell Ringers neededNew Bell Ringers Needed.

Would you like to learn how to ring bells? This is a call for “ new bell ringers”. Our English Heritage has always included bell ringing and what a great exercise without going to the gym! Brilliant for the brain and meeting people, who could become friends. If you would like to give it a try, please contact Bryan Tumber on 520997 or email Tumber_bryan@yahoo.com

February Onwards Communion by Extension. From February the Ministry Leadership Team (MLT) will be leading services that are Communion by Extension. In other words they are extended from a previous Communion Service where the bread and wine have been consecrated (normally) by me. This will allow us to continue to share bread and wine together at the Lord's Table Sunday by Sunday in our various churches and I am very grateful for the MLT in enabling this for us. If you have any questions about this please do contact me. Steve Lillicrap.
