We are delighted to welcome back Hazel Le Boutillier to lead a local arrangement this Sunday on the theme of ‘What can WE give?’

Plea from Heaven: the lost black file   Did anyone accidentally pick up and take away from Church a black file with a few sheets of photocopied music inside?  I used it last on Sunday, 17 December at our candlelit Service with Rev Dawn.  I left it at Church ready to use on the following Wednesday 20 December when singing again at our community soup and carols.  I had to sing a different solo.  Under normal circumstances I wouldn't be too worried, but the two copies in the file are the only ones I have of this beautiful Christmas piece and no other copies would be in print now.  Help!!

If you have yet not had an opportunity to give your preference about potentially changing the time of our morning worship from 10.30am to 9.30am (to facilitate the Plan) please pick up a ‘polling sheet’ on Sunday morning and hand it to one of the stewards.

Generations holds its first get together of the year tomorrow, Friday 12 January from 2.45pm.  All are very welcome.
