Welcome Rota

A new rota is shortly being drawn up and it would be good to have some additional people involved. If there are sufficient numbers it is a duty every 2 months and you would work in pairs welcoming and giving books to the congregation. You could also be involved in taking the collection if you wished to. If you would like to join the team or find out more, please have a word with Barbara Hancox or Malcolm

Readings and Intercessions

Copies of the October to December 2019 rota are on the notice board for collection by readers and intercessors.Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you’d like to join the “readers and intercessors” team.If you feel apprehensive, then rest assured you’d have lots of support, and practice beforehand if helpful.We would especially welcome new intercessors. I’d be delighted to give advice and support about leading prayers to anyone interested in this aspect of public ministry.Sue Morton
