CHILDREN'S SOCIETY BOXES
I have taken over Edna's role as Box Secretary. Please contact me if your box needs emptying or if you would like one to collect your spare change. Haidee Proud 336 5175 or 07939 895979
TEAMS4U CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES
Yes! It is that time of year again. I have been unable to collect and cover boxes this year but have arranged to receive Teams4U boxes, leaflets, and posters, and will get them out in the next two weeks. If you prefer to cover and fill your own shoebox that is great. Alternatively, you could buy a gift and leave it in any of our churches with my name on and I will make sure it is included in a Box for a child who would not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas. Thank you in advance for your help to make Christmas 2019 the best year yet!Kath 336 2723

KEEP UP THE RECYCLING! Kath Roberts is busy sorting through your offerings of crisp packets, stamps, bread bags and hard plastics (pens, toothpaste tubes & brushes). Some people seem surprised that it is worth recycling Plastic milk tops separately, but they are worth more when sold this way. Just pop these things in the box at the back of the church. Thanks, Rev Judith
