YEAR’S MIND
I am keeping a diary of names of our departed loved ones and the dates on which they died so that they can be remembered during our services. If you wish to include the name of a loved one, pass the name on to Elizabeth in the church office on Mondays or Tuesdays.   FJ

VOLUNTEERS TO WELCOME VISITORS

Help needed mornings/afternoons for as long or short a time as you have available.
