Use of WBC rooms
Please note that all requests to use rooms in WBC must now be sent directly to the Church Office, and Sue will confirm whether the room/date is available. Please also be aware that, if the request has to be approved by the deacons, (and most do), the request must reach the office by Thursday in the week before a deacon’s meeting. Deacon’s meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday of the month, so in effect all requests must be received by the last Thursday of the month prior to the required date to avoid any disappointment.
BMS Birthday Scheme
When you celebrate another year of life, would you consider making a donation to BMS World Mission? Your donation will be used to promote the work of doctors, dentists, etc. and also includes work towards disease prevention and positive health. On your birthday, you will be given a card and an envelope in which to put any donation. For more information, please contact Liz LeQuesne or Rosemary Croft. Thank you.
If anyone has a play kitchen that they could donate to the WBC crèche, please see Julia Mockett.
