Church Christmas card

This is at the back of church.  If you wish, please sign it and send your greetings to your friends here, and give a donation in lieu of sending your own individual cards. Proceeds will go to our chosen Christmas charities - Heel and Toe, and Granger Street Friends.  


The new Flower List for 2018 is now on the notice board at the back of church.  If you would like to provide flowers for church one Sunday - simply put your name against a date and give your monetary donation to Lesley Cadwallader, who will pass it on to one of the flower arrangers.   


Thank You

Once again, thank you to all those who supported the Socks and Chocs Appeal for the People’s Kitchen. We (Heaton Churches Together) made up 166 gift bags for men and 124 gift bags for women for the People’s Kitchen, and also donated bags of clothes, spare socks, and two sleeping bags.   We are grateful to Mike Cox (Cub Leader) for transporting the bags to the Kitchen. The gifts will be given out to the clients at their Christmas party. We also thank the donor of the gift bags themselves.  

Thank you also to those who supported the collection of toys for the Salvation Army last Sunday.
