Young persons Confirmation Group

After much trying to find a convenient time for a young peoples confirmation group there was no day easy for everyone during the week. Therefore we shall try to do this on a Sunday afternoon between 4 pm and 4.45 pm.

Autumn Fayre

Over the past weeks, we have advertised in the newsletter for a volunteer to co-ordinate an autumn fayre for us. As no-one has offered to take on this role, this year PCC have made the decision not to hold an autumn fayre. Given that this means our income is likely to be over £1000 less than might have been expected we are looking to find ways to lessen such a shortfall and hope we may be able to organise maybe 3 smaller events during the coming year which could attract both church members and others and be methods of raising money. If you have any ideas, and/or would be happy to organise a single event please speak to Malcolm or the churchwardens.
