Christian Aid Week 10th-16th May 2021

Climate change affects us all but those communities living in poverty struggle with it everyday as drought or flooding made worse by climate change robs them of a reliable supply of clean water.   Together though we can help stop this climate crisis and give people the water they need to live.  Please watch for the envelope dropping through your letter box or donate online today.  Thank you.

Singing in the churchyard

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A day of glorious sunshine to celebrate the risen Lord, a day made even more special by the fact that not only was it our first service in church for some time but we also all came out into the churchyard to sing that lovely Easter hymn, ‘Thine be the glory, risen, conquering son’.

We were then all ready in position for the ‘official’ opening of our new toilets.  Our thanks to all involved in the project, in particular Russ, Ross, Viridor and, of course, our fabric officer, Bryan.
