Church Council elections              17 March
Have you thought about becoming a member of the Church Council.
For regular Church Council members this is not a role that takes a lot of time but it is really important that we have a full Council, representative of all parts of the congregation, so that we hear the views and opinions of different groups. 
We need church councillors with some experience of the working of the Council so that there is an understanding of decisions that have been made.  We also need some new church councillors to introduce new ideas and new ways.
Please don’t leave it to other people.  Your contribution would be valuable.
Nomination forms are available at the rear of the church.

Annual General Meeting             17 March
Our AGM will be held after the morning service but before lunch on Sunday 17 March.  The Annual Report is available, today, for collection.  Please read it so that you are prepared for the Annual General Meeting.
