YOUR RECTOR IS GOING TO PRISON! The Rector will be sentenced in the Royal Court on February 13th and urgently needs to raise £2,000+ in bail money in aid of the Shelter Trust if he is to be released in time for Valentine’s Day. Cheques, whether for him to stay in or get out, should be made payable to ‘The Shelter Trust’ and passed to the Rector, please.
MIGHT YOU BE ABLE TO HELP, PLEASE? Our prayers of thanksgiving and intercession are an important part of our worship, and the small band of volunteers who lead us in these prayers is looking for help, please. Training and guidance will be given. Please speak to the Rector about this if you think you might be able to assist.
