Sunday 13th to Saturday 19th May Christian Aid Week.
During this week the churches in the town have a house to house collection for Christian Aid. Volunteers have a street or two in which they deliver envelopes one day and go round collecting another day. The town has grown so much that all streets cannot be covered so we need more collectors. This is an opportunity for Friends to work with the other churches in raising money for this worthwhile charity.
    If you can give an hour or two for this good cause please contact Ted Jackson. There will be a choice of roads so that collection is somewhere convenient.

Sunday 20th All Age meeting 10.30
