Sunday February 6th

We will be celebrating a “Mossy” Christingle, outside at St Peter’s Church at 3.30pm. No need to book, but dress for the weather!

* A bit like Messy Church but outside,  Mossy Church is interactive, hands-on and great way for all ages to explore Christian spirituality.

The Friends of St Helen’s Church needs a Treasurer and Secretary. A fun committee – light duties!

FOR SALE: These lovely cards (with envelopes) are blank inside for your message. £2.50 for a pack of 5. Available from Ruth Coles 712330
