Thank you to those who have volunteered to lock the South doors, at the end of the day, when the church has been open to the public. However, we really need a few more people to ensure that we can open on an almost daily basis. We specifically need someone for Friday afternoons but also a pool of people to draw on from time to time. More volunteers would enable us to draw
up a rota so that the same people did not have to lock up week after week! If you could say which afternoon would be convenient that will be a great help.
Please contact one of us,

Come and Celebrate the Return and Blessing of our Bells
On Saturday 3rd March the church will be open from 10 am to 3 pm for the dressing and viewing of our new and refurbished bells – probably for the last time in most of our lifetimes!
On Sunday 4th March at the 11 am service the bells will be blessed before they are raised into the tower during the following week.
Do join us!
N.B. Don’t forget to book the afternoon of Sunday April 29th to come together to celebrate the completion of the Heritage Project.
