Cancelled – Harvest Barn Dance

Sadly, we have had to take the decision to cancel the Barn Dance due to take place on Saturday 1 October because it is not financially viable for the numbers we have. The intention had been that any monies raised after covering our costs would be donated to our link Diocese in Malawi. If you would like to make a donation towards education in Malawi, there is the opportunity to do so at our Harvest services on Sunday 2 October.

In addition, the Sunday lunch already planned for Sunday November 6 will now be a fundraiser for Malawi, We do hope that this will be well supported.

Open to all ages, individuals, families, groups, friends, etc. The Gospel reading for the Sunday will be given as a help, or thoughts on seasonal or liturgical festivals would be welcomed. To help smooth running please submit your thoughts to the Church Office by the Tuesday of the week before the Pew Sheet goes out.
