Plant Sale - Thanks
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the plant sale such a success on the 5
th June. There was an amazing variety of plants produced on the day. It was good to see so many people over the morning, enjoying the sunshine and the chance to catch up with friends after all the ‘lockdowns’.
Donations on the day raised an amazing £330 for church funds so many thanks to all who gave so generously, it is really appreciated.
There are still some plants in the church grounds if anyone has any space left to fill in their gardens.
Thanks again.

Church cleaning
In the past we have been fortunate to have band of regular church cleaners to maintain the church for the weekly services. The present circumstances mean that the church would need to be cleaned before the twice monthly planned services.
We are also making the church open again for daily prayer.
We are grateful for all the service that has been given in the past and the PCC would like to know if past volunteers are still willing to offer this service again as we emerge from the Lockdown status. All cleaning materials are provided by the PCC. 
We realise many have experienced changes in their circumstances in this past year or so and it is perhaps time to refresh this devoted band of folk, who give so kindly to the church in these domestic acts, that keep our church a place of peace and hospitality.
In the coming month of May, volunteers from the Hobby group will do the cleaning, as we plan to meet twice a month, but we do not see this as a regular part of the group activity.
Please let us know if you would like to continue on the regular rota for cleaning throughout the year, or like someone to be your cleaning buddy, to show you where all the nooks and crannies are that need some regular dusting and polishing. Perhaps a good job for some Duke of Edinburgh candidates too, who might need to gather some merits for their challenge.

Flower Rota
As we reopen the church, can you let me know if you wish to be on the Flower Rota.
There will only be two services a month, one the 2
nd and one on the 4th Sunday.
For the time being we would ask you to look after the flowers for both services.
This will start in June, as I will do the flowers for May.
You are very welcome to put flowers in church at any time if you wish to remember some anniversary.

Donation Button
Giving to the church has become a lot more difficult during lockdown.
However, some people are looking for easier ways to give, so we have launched a "Donation Button" for anyone who would like to give to the church. Please visit
If you would like to give more regularly then you may prefer to set up a standing order with our treasurer, Janet Preston -
Thank you very much to everyone who has continued to generously support our church in these difficult times.
