General Notices

Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal leaflets are available. We have boxes or you can wrap an ordinary shoebox in Christmas paper. Samaritan’s Purse have asked that we fill the boxes with a ‘wow’ toy such as a doll or a football. They also recommend other fun toys and games, school supplies like pens and notebooks, hygiene items like soap and toothpaste. Full details are in the leaflets. If you are not able to fill a box you can bring in any of the suggested items and they can still make their way to a child in need. Envelopes are also available for cash donations.

Offerings last Sunday: £522.50

Calling all dressmakers do you have any original Dewhurst Sylko wood cotton reels hidden at the bottom of your sewing basket? With or without thread just so long as they still have the original label; they are needed by the Touchstone Centre to help raise much needed funds. Please see the information sheet on the notice board about this Methodist supported community.
