KNITTED CHRISTMAS ANGELS

Many of you will recall last year’s appeal from the Circuit Children’s Team to knit Christmas Angels.  It was a great success and a total of 1665 angels where knitted and placed at various locations around the Circuit.  The feedback from the public was very positive and so everyone is asked to  please start knitting again in time for Christmas 2018.  If anyone would like a knitting pattern please speak to Elaine Phillips.

TRYING SOMETHING NEW!

A small group are organising a Holiday@Home this summer from Thursday, 16th to Sunday, 19th August.  This is for people who may not get a change to go on holiday or may feel isolated at home.

If you would like to join with us to help make this exciting venture happen – please stay behind after the morning service on Sunday 27th May to find out more – or speak to Carole Barnett or Catherine Jackson.
