To all Church Members
Just a reminder to say that the Ordinary Church Members’ Meeting is on Tuesday at 8pm, here in the first floor meeting room.
If you opted for the papers for this meeting to be sent to you be email - they were circulated on Tuesday.
If you opted for a hard copy, there are a few envelopes still in the café — please pick them up before you leave today.
In the event that you are unable to attend, please send your apologies (in writing) to the Church Secretary, Ruth Warren, before the meeting. Thank you.

The school holidays are fast approaching and during these weeks, we give our group leaders time off to relax and recuperate on a Sunday morning. We therefore need volunteers to step in to be with our younger members of church for two weeks during August. If you are around on Sunday 12th or 26th of August and can help out, please have a word with either Peju or Richard Powell.
