OUR CHURCH – THE WAY FORWARD

At the recent Church Council Meeting it was confirmed that repairs to the church heating would commence on Monday, 25th June.  However it was emphasised that there is no 100% guarantee that the proposed work will solve all the problems.

After some discussion it was agreed that a group be set up to look at the way forward for our church.  It is important that this group should comprise not only members of Church Council but also any church member who feels they can contribute to looking into issues concerning our church building.

Please speak to any member of the leadership team if you would like to be part of that group.

PRAISE IN THE PARK

A reminder that the church’s open air service takes place in the upper park at Ashton Park this afternoon from 3.30 p.m. with a 4 p.m. start.  Dirk’s band Borderline will be playing and “Women Together” – the Asylum Link choir will be singing for us.  Rev Emma Speake from St. Bridget’s will be the speaker.  Please join us.    

CHURCH HEATING

Work began on repairing/replacing the heating in the church last Monday, 25th June and will continue for approximately 3-4 weeks.  There will be no access to the church during this time and services will therefore be held in the church hall.

FLOWERS

The flowers today are kindly given by Veronica Ward in memory of her Mum.

CHURCH FLOWERS

We have no donors for either 15th or 22nd July so if anyone would like to place flowers in a vase or give money for some (services will be in the church hall on these dates) would they please speak to me or any of the flower arrangers.
