Donations will be sent to Mary’s Meals, £13.90 feeds one child a day for a year.  Members of Messy Church felt they would like to give something to children less fortunate than themselves as a thank you for the support you gave our funds before Christmas. We hope you will support us again and allow us to feed some children less fortunate. Thank you.

Flower Calendars for Donors and Deliverers  are available on the table at the foot of the North Gallery stairs. Members can add their names there. Many thanks to those who donate and/or deliver, it is much appreciated by those in the church on a Sunday and those who receive them after the service.
