New for 2019

Not everyone carries cash these days, so if you'd like to make your offering or a donation by card, or by one of the Phone Pay apps, then ask for the card reader: from €1 to €1000, you choose and we say thank you! (You can get an email receipt if you need one.)

In the future, we'll be able to take card payments for fees, tickets and anything else too; we hope this will make life easier for some. Why not let us know what you think?
Don't forget that we have a PayPal account, too, if that's useful for you. See the website for details

Men's Group

How can we “spur one another on”?
Maybe meeting up for an hour or two with other men in the church over coffee or a beer sounds like an opportunity: if so, read more about the new Men’s Group which is starting up on Saturday 19 January.
Let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together…but encouraging one another. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
There's a new page on the website with more details, and you can find out what's planned, and where to meet, by clicking the button. (Or speak to Tom in church) Sorry ladies, this one is for the men!
