Bible Reading Challenge
Our Bible Reading Challenge continues this week as we move onto Matthew chapter 28 and Joel chapters 1-3.
Following this morning’s service there will be a short Sacrament of Holy Communion.
Pew End Flowers
Can I please ask that pew end posies are left in place after the service.
Following this morning’s service we will require 14 volunteers to deliver bunches of daffodils to members of our congregation who have suffered bereavement during the past year. These with cards will be available in the Pillar Hall following our Service today. It will be of great help if you could collect your card(s) before you go for coffee and the daffodils on you way home. Your support will be greatly appreciated.
