1 June 2014
We welcome you all to our services today, especially if you are a visitor or worshipping with us for the first time.
Both services today are being led by Iestyn and this evening’s service will include the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, when we invite all, who so wish, to share in the bread and wine with us.
Tea and coffee will be served in the hall after this morning’s service, when the monthly Traidcraft stall will be open. Please take time to see what is on sale, and support fair-trade.
The Copper Pot is, as usual, on the table; so don’t take your ‘small change’ home with you, put it in the pot, where it will be used for local charities.

Please be early next Sunday for a brief rehearsal before the AM service.
Saturday Coffee Bar
The Coffee Bar is an important part of our outreach. We open for just two hours on most Saturday mornings. It is run by a loyal group of volunteers who serve and / or make cakes – we would welcome ‘new’ volunteers – could YOU be a volunteer, there is a new rota on the wall in the hall – PLEASE sign up and help us!
Equipment for new kitchen
As we are looking for funding to improve the kitchen, we starting to raise extra funds for equipment by selling books, we have a good selection in excellent condition; these can be viewed during Coffee Bar or on Sunday morning.
Flowers for June are being donated by
Enid Williams, Anne Hill, Jane & Roger Bright and Carol Powell
