Welcome to all visitors
If you are a visitor or a newcomer to our Church or area and would like to establish closer links with us, then please complete the ‘Welcome Card’ which can be found at the back of church and hand it to one of the Church Stewards.
If you are a member of the congregation but not an official member of the church and are thinking about it then do please speak to me.
It would be good to meet with people to explore more about being part of The Methodist Church.
I would normally meet with people briefly once or twice, before being welcomed into membership during part of Sunday worship. John Palmer.

SPECIAL NOTICES AND REQUESTS
Children’s area in church
Having had some feedback this week on the idea of having a children’s area at the back of church I suggest that we leave things as they are at present.
At the General Church Meeting 29th April we then have a discussion on creating more of an area in church possibly at the front where the children currently gather for Messy Church.
I would also want to suggest that we continue to explore the pattern that we have followed for many years in that the children and young people go out after the offering. Every blessing, John Palmer.
The first meeting of Wednesday Fellowship will be at 2.30pm on Wednesday 28th February. We will be having Afternoon Tea, a “Bring and Buy” and showing a short film on the story of Mary Jones.
All are welcome.
Deborah our cleaner has left to pursue something new and we thank her for all she has done and wish her well.
As we are waiting to employ a new cleaner, may we please ask the leaders of all groups, and members using the church premises, to please leave the building tidy and clean. Can group leaders, please check the toilets before they vacate the building. Many thanks for your co-operation, it is very much appreciated.
