During the morning church service on Sunday 10th December , we placed under the “Empty Christmas Tree” generous donations of unwrapped children’s toys or gift vouchers or gifts for the families supported by Family Life.   We also brought forward a mountain of non-perishable grocery food items for these vulnerable families. Many thanks to all members of our congregation who brought along these much needed donations.

Wonderful array of gifts donated by the church congregation for Family Life to distribute to its clients in the area who are facing challenges this Christmas
Thanks to the Chard family for collecting gifts from the congregation and placing them all under the tree.
Family Life were thrilled to receive our generous gifts.


What a lovely afternoon of Carol singing and sharing lunch together during our annual Christmas lunch last Sunday. More than forty of us gathered in the Hall where the tables were all decked out in Christmas colours. An added blessing was to listen to and then sing along with our very own Carol singers and musicians, consisting of John Davies, Jenny Small, Alison Davies, Carol Parker and David Scott.
Before the final Carol of the afternoon, it was fitting that we thanked our musicians and also thanked Wendy Hinde for organising everything, including her willing kitchen staff. Thank you to all those who brought along a vegetarian dish, salad or sweet to share. We have great cooks in the congregation!
