Family Christmas Card
Every year we give people the option of writing one card for the whole church and making a donation. This year we will be gathering money for Sam Mutton (Uganda) as he begins a bike maintenance course, combined with discipleship for young men in the slums. One of the costs will be buying tools for the workshop and giving them a small toolkit to keep at the end of it (costing around £40). By saving money on Christmas Cards, how many toolkits could we pay for?...
Gift Aid check
If you are no longer a tax payer or have moved house it is important that you let Shirley know (01594 841743)
Also, if you only pay a small amount of tax then it is worth checking that we are not claiming more tax back than you have paid.
Church Centre Cog
Please note that the Church Centre Cog will not be meeting again this year.
