Messy Church

                 (4th Sunday each Monthat 10am
Messy Church has changed its timing. We are having Messy Church on a monthly basis in the mornings in place of Junior Church. Messy Church will start at 10.00am in the hall and be for anyone who wants a craft based worship, but particularly applicable for families to do together. It will finish at 11.30am when refreshments will be served.

 

In the church building there will be worship as normal. Most (Messy Church) Sundays it will be a shorted Service of the Word but planned with adults in mind. This service will also finish about 11.30am with the aim of joining the families in the hall for refreshments.

Christian Aid Week –

Volunteers requested for Friday 17 May.

Permission has been given to run a bucket collection on Preston Station during Christian Aid week. We hope to be collecting for the charity on the station between 9am-5pm. If you could spare an hour or two to rattle a bucket on Friday 17th May, please contact Anne Garsed as soon as possible either by email: fairpreston@gmail.com

or by mobile: 07813 870641.
