Keyholders If you no longer require your keys for the church, could you please return them to me. The keys for the church are expensive to replace so any surplus ones will cut down any unnecessary expense. Thank you. Bob Owen.

Refreshment List A new list for the coming three months is on the hatch door (kitchen/lounge). Please add your name to the list for the dates you are able to help.

Please try to help so that this time of fellowship after services can continue.
