I am very grateful that Tom Dobinson has kindly agreed to take on the role of PCC Treasurer. It will take quite a time for Tom to ease his way into the role. Initially he'll concentrate on bringing in contactless giving and the Parish Giving Scheme. Thank you to all who help with the Treasury functions.

Confirmation - Final Call!
At a confirmation service:
*We make the promises made by our parents and godparents when we were baptised our own* We declare our intention to live a life committed to Jesus.
* This affirmation is confirmed by prayer and the laying on of hands by the bishop. *The Church asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.
Earlier in the year the Vicar invited anyone interested in being confirmed to contact him - if you didn't get in touch then, but would like to be confirmed, then please him know now. You will need to attend a short confirmation course before the confirmation service. Keith will be in touch soon with all those interested to arrange dates.
