HELP! Please would you consider helping on the Sunday tea and coffee rota? You can do it with a friend/wife/husband. You only have to buy milk. You do not have to wash up. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. It involves arriving a little earlier on a Sunday, setting out the trays with mugs and biscuits and filling the urn. After the service you would make up to 35 cups of very welcome tea and coffee. This is a real service to our church family, a lovely welcome to newcomers. We need someone to do the first and the Fourth Sunday of the month. Speak to Marion Hyde on 01327 857947.

Cleaner for St Mary’s Do you know someone who would be prepared to clean St Mary’s church before services (approx 20 times a year)? It is a voluntary position, but we would be very grateful for just a hoover and a dust! If anyone interested please contact the Benefice Office on 01327 350459 or Helen Garton on 01327 359382.
