Refreshments Following Sunday Services Please add your name/s to the list on the hatch door (kitchen/lounge) to say when you can help.

Coffee/Thought For The Day Please note: there will be no meetings on Christmas Day & New Year’s Day.

Pastoral Visitors’ Commissioning Service - Sunday 11th January 10-30am. Please note the date. We urgently need one or two additional Pastoral Visitors. If you feel you can help, please contact Joan Owen, tel. 220436.

Flowers & Pastoral Care If you know of anyone who is ill or housebound please let Joyce Smith (Tel. 224122) know so that Church Flowers can be taken to them. Also please let Joan Owen (Tel. 220436) know when people are admitted to hospital or are sick at home so that the Pastoral Visitors and Minister can be contacted.

Extended Holy Communion If you know of any friends who are not able to attend worship and would like to receive Holy Communion in their own homes, please pass their details on to Rev. Jan Fraser or Mrs Joanna Simpson.

Fair Trade We are a Fair Trade Church and use only fairly traded tea & coffee. If anyone has a preference as to which tea or coffee is used, please speak to Sheila Jones, Lin Mayor or Avril Merone.

Paperback books wanted to sell on the stall in the lounge and at Thought for the Day in aid of church funds. If you have any, they will be very welcome.

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.


Southport Food Bank Please continue to support the Southport food bank by placing items as listed in the box in the church porch. Foods urgently needed: Tinned fruit; Steamed puddings; tinned meat; long life milk; fruit juices; sugar.

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. More help is needed and if those who are able could do two Sundays in the 3 month period, that would relieve those who have to regularly step in to cover dates not covered. Please try to help so that this time of fellowship after services can continue.
