This advent season the Pastoral Committee, on behalf of the congregation, has arranged to get Christmas plants for our senior and house-bound members – especially those who are not able to participate in any of the other events at the church. The Sunday School and Brownies are preparing Christmas cards to go along with the plants. The plants will be in the church on Sunday 15th December and we are looking for members of the congrgation to help deliver them.
