Beginner Bells Have you ever wondered about playing hand bells?  If so, this is the time to try them out.  You can try them without committing to being in our choir, but please come and try!  Beginner Bells meet every Sunday after Church (with the exception of other church events on a Sunday, or School holidays) from 11:20 until noon.  Hope to see you enjoying the beautiful sound of hand bells!

The Communications Committee is always looking for photographs!

Offering Envelopes – Making your donation using a set of offering envelopes is the easiest way to ensure you receive a tax receipt for your givings. If you don’t have a set of offering envelopes, and would like some, please contact Carla in the church office.

We are in need of Scripture Readers and Door Greeters every Sunday. Please sign the lists in the foyer if you would like to volunteer to help during the worship services.
