an event or a loved one,
please enter the details on the sponsorship rota
at the back of the church.

Jonathan's Sponsored Cycle Ride

Thank you to everyone who has responded to
my 1000 mile cycle ride appeal in aid of the Stroke Association.

You may still donate on the 'Just Giving' website
(enter 'Jonathan's Orkneys to Brighton')
OR cash is also very welcome!

Thanks in anticipation.

Parking at the Sunday 10:00am Service

It would be a great kindness
if the kerbside nearest the church porch(usually marked with cones)
could be left for drivers and their passengers
who need easy access to church.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Church Cleaning: Volunteers Urgently Needed

Pauline would dearly like help with the church cleaning 
which she had previously been doing almost single-handedly.

Some volunteers have kindly come forward,
but more are needed.

Ideally, she would like to hear from people prepared to
form teams of two for the cleaning of church and vestry
one week every month.

If you can help, please speak to her -
and make her a very happy bunny!
