Announcements Sunday 17 January 2021
VOLUNTEERS – We are appealing for volunteers to help with the Easy Worship/Live Streaming on Sunday mornings. No experience required as training will be given and you will only be required to operate on a rota system. It is very urgent because if we can’t get some additional help it may result in these essentials to Worship being unavailable.
CHURCH ATTENDANCE –Church will be closed due to the current covid 19 restrictions. This will be reviewed at the beginning of February. We will let you know of any further decisions a.s.a.p.
FOOD BANK – Thank you to all who have donated a variety of food stuffs for our local food bank. The next collection will be on Tuesday 12 January from 11a.m. – 12 noon in the Church car park.
PRESBYTERIAN HERALD – We have been advised that publication of the Presbyterian Herald will resume in January 2021. To allow for flexibility and to reduce risk around production and distribution, it has been decided that four seasonal issues will be produced next year instead of ten monthly ones. In light of the fact that many will have already paid for issues not received this year there will be no subscription charges in 2021.
THE SCOUT GROUP – The Scout Group are looking for new leaders/helpers for all sections. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Terry Troughton on 07885217652.
SUNDAY SCHOOL BROWN MONEY APPEAL – Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the Sunday school brown money appeal which last year was going to Children In Need. Despite church services being held on line for a large part of the year, we still managed to raise the sum of £265.96. Obviously, although this is a fantastic amount, we had hoped to be able to give this charity a bit more and so we have taken the decision to also donate this year’s brown money to Children in Need to help them with their amazing work within our community.
SAFEGUARDING TRAINING is now being offered ONLINE for leaders. Foundation training sessions for new leaders and Refresher training sessions for existing leaders will be available in February and March. If you were unable to attend our last training session in Regent Street in 2019 or have not had training in the past 3 years please contact Gillian in the office for further details. (Via email if possible)
The Church Office is closed again due to the new lockdown restrictions:
However, you can still contact us by phone or email. Please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
