Many people are kind enough to make monthly donations by Standing Order but find it awkward when the collection plate goes around as they have nothing to put in to indicate their giving.
We have therefore introduced a Giving Token which can be collected when entering the church, and this can be placed in the collecting plate.
Monday at 7
Our next event is tomorrow, Monday 12th August, 7pm at the Vicarage, for our American Supper. Looking forward to seeing you all there. Any queries, contact Marion Brown, Tel: 604524, email

Fundraising Committee Report for Sunday 11th August 2019
Forthcoming Fund Raising events are Quiz Night (Friday 4th October) and Fashion Show (Friday 1st November). Details of all these events will appear in the Newsletter at a later time.
Loose Change Boxes – slowly & surely the total rises.
You may like to know that in a very short while we will have raised £7,000 from these boxes. A great achievement for all involved and many grateful thanks to everyone collecting. We have some regular, loyal contributors but there must be many others of you with boxes. Please continue to fill them and bring them into the office as soon as they are near to full for counting and return.
I also have more spare boxes for anyone who wants to join the scheme. Come on It’s very simple – any small change that is a nuisance just put the coins in the box and, as above, when convenient either bring it to the office or give me a ring to arrange collection. Don B for FR Team 602287

We are always SO grateful for the cash donations given each week at services.If you are a tax payer it would be an even greater benefit if you could put your donation in a completed yellow Gift Aid envelope so that we can recover the extra 25p in every pound given!
