Sunday Service Times & Plan March/April/May(pdf doc)
Have you noticed the vast amount of coverage on the TV lately about loneliness? So many folk, old and young in our communities are facing long days without conversation. We have a range of activities across the Circuit to which we could easily invite folk to just to ease that isolation.
Why not offer to take a neighbour to something? (for lunches it might be wise to phone first – but I am sure you will be made very welcome!!)

Please let Ann know if you are running a Lent Course this year, so that a comprehensive list can be produced. If there are no courses running in your own Church, please consider attending one elsewhere.
