There is still time to make a contribution to our Christian Aid week offering: A bag will be available in the sanctuary, today, Sunday 22nd May to return the envelopes. Spare envelopes can also be found at the back of the church or on the vestibule table. I hope you will once again support this worthwhile Charity.
