specifically for the services which take place on Sundays. 7.00pm to 7.30pm approx., in the Tower Room, until further notice. Enter via West Door (facing Church Street). Further info from Paul Wallace.
Alpha: The next Alpha Course begins on Wednesday 13th September at 7.30pm, in church. If you have never attended an Alpha course please sign up now - it is the best investment of time possible. If you are able to help occasionally with hospitality please let me know. Please also take an invitation from the table at the back of church and invite or encourage someone to attend the course. Sign up sheets are on the Alpha noticeboard at the back or contact Michael Greig via [email protected]
Parish Weekend Away 29th September - 1st October: In 2015, 120 of the church family went away for a weekend to The Hayes Centre and it was a massive success. We still have places that must be filled. Please see the information at the back of church and the website for further details. Time is running out, so please sign up quickly. It will be an amazing weekend so don’t miss out.
First Sunday 11am service: From September 2017, the 11am service on the first Sunday of the month will be Morning Worship rather than Holy Communion. This will be for a six month period as agreed by the PCC. Paul Mileham would be glad to hear your views on this experimental period after you have experienced one or two of these services. Please email [email protected] or phone 07414 247673
Book-keeper wanted: We are seeking a volunteer to offer a couple of hours a week to help with the books. Full training given. Some experience desirable, intimacy with Excel essential! Please let the office know if you can help. Thanks, Will.

Join us on Saturday 16th Sept, 10-12, for our coffee morning and mini fair at the Old Gaol, and on Sunday 17th Sept, 2.30pm, at Well Street United church, to hear from Adam Gardner, of the Fairtrade Foundation, who will share some producer stories and speak on trade justice. Refreshments include a specially designed cake!

The recital will include demonstration at the console – a guided tour of the flight deck, and ‘It’s about time’ – a historical journey, symphonic style! The concert will last about an hour. £10 (under 18s free). All proceeds go towards developing community outreach at The Centre. Tickets from the church office, or on the door.
Bucks County Show 31st August 2017: We are looking to recruit a team to welcome visitors to the Deanery Marquee where we will offer free teas and cake and a warm welcome! If interested or if you can bake a cake for the above please let the Office know.
A word of thanks: to Ray Neale, for giving us such wonderful dahlias and asters to decorate the church. Much appreciated.
