  • Geoff’s May Eco Tips Say no to the mow.  Mowing your lawn less and letting parts of it grow long, saves you time and helps give nature a home.  If you want to make an even bigger impact for wildlife, don’t mow your lawn or a section of it all until August to help even more animals.
  • Help Needed! Would you like to help serve tea and coffee after the 9.15am Service?  We would love to have you join our team.  Please have a chat with Celia to find out more.
  • Bell Ringers Do you want to hear the Bells ring on Sunday Mornings?  If you are 10 years or older and would like to volunteer as part of a rota to ring the bells on Sunday mornings (and earn a bit of pocket money at Weddings) please get in touch with Elsa on 07896 626016.
  • Coffee Lounge Communion Service, Tea, Refreshments and Chat We meet in the Coffee Lounge at 2.00pm on the first Monday of the month however, May’s Service will be on the 13th, the second Monday of the month, due to the Bank Holiday.  Everyone is welcome especially those for whom the 9.15am Sunday Service is too early!
  • Little Fishes meet at the Church at 9.45am every Tuesday during term time for preschool children and their parents/carers.
  • Welcome Packs Please remember that we have a welcome pack for anyone new to our village.  The Visitors Group is constantly looking for removal vans but everyone can be looking out too!  Please contact Helen Dickinson – 01642 724450 if a pack is needed.
  • Lights the little switches for use with keys for the lights, if you switch them off please turn them back on straight away as we are unable to get them back on

  • Church Lights   The new light switches are not wired in, but work on a radio signal going to the lights. To ensure it gets there properly, and not just to one half of Church, Please give a slow deliberate press. A quick stab may just turn half the Church on at a time.
