We are blessed to have so many children here at Walsgrave, this however means that we need more hands on deck on a Sunday morning, so it is not the same people each week. Could you please pray for our children’s work and discern whether this is something that you could help with. If yes could you talk to Malcolm or Claire after the service.
Just a reminder that the car parking passes that we used to issue for the Red Lion are NO LONGER VALID! You may still park in the Red Lion for free on Sunday mornings but you will need to pop into the bar to enter your car number plate into their machine.
Do not purchase a ticket beforehand as the money cannot be refunded but tell the staff you have been at church and they will allow you to enter the registration number. If you should get a ticket, bring it into church to Malcolm and it will be cancelled.
