Parents and children, please put this special Christmas activity morning in your diary. Children (and parents) welcome.
Church Heating
You will have noticed that the heating is working! The problem was with the filter, which was totally blocked with dust from the demolition and the road works.
We'll be checking the filters regularly from now on, because although the road works are finished, the building works are not.
Bishop Robert has also launched his Advent Appeal, to support the Anglican Communion Fund and its work empowering women in different and often difficult parts of the world.
