Toy service Sunday 5 December
There are a few ways that you can donate for the toy service:
You can buy a gift and either bring it to church on the 5th, or have it delivered to the manse (email Jon for details). Or you can donate financially (clearly designate giving to the church bank account) and Jon will purchase gifts on your behalf.
 
Tim Johnson from the Salvation Army has given the following advice regarding gifts, which need to be new and unwrapped – “Toiletry gifts sets are always much appreciated.  There is an Amazon 'gift list' at https://amzn.eu/gbbt3MD (just suggestions you don't have to buy from Amazon)

What we believe


We are a Christian church and believe all can have relationship with God.
We believe this can happen because of Jesus, who invites us to follow him.
 

Is it just Sundays?


Absolutely not! God is with us all week long and we aim to lead lives that show it. We’re not perfect and we do make mistakes, but we want to make a positive difference in everything we do.
