Summer holiday meals
We are exploring the possibility of setting up a project to provide meals in the summer holiday for needy families. This would be a joint partnership between our two churches and other local businesses and community groups. At this point we are in the early planning stage, and are looking for people who might be interested in being involved, both in planning and in practicalities. If you would like to be part of this, please speak to Fr Chris ASAP.
Thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in being part of the Pastoral Visiting Team. The training for this will begin on Wednesday 13th June.
