September Cafe Church

On Wednesday 11th September at Cafe Church we heard about all that is involved in volunteering at ‘Starter Packs’. As many of you will be aware there is a box at the back of the church for appropriate items that can be taken to the depot for sorting into packs. Thank you to everyone who supports Cafe Church.

Silent Auction Update

The Silent Auction on Friday 6th September was a great success. There were a number of sought after items where the bidding was fierce. Along with the wine, cheese etc. there was also cake as we celebrated a wedding anniversary too. The total raised for church funds was £1,721.50p with Gift Aid to be added which will take the total over £2,000. Thanks are due to all those who contributed to the evening.

Silent Auction

This Friday 6th September at 7.30pm a ‘Silent Auction’ is taking place in the Threshold. Tickets are £10 and most folk attending have a ticket already. There are a wide range of talents on offer and many other donations of goods are up for grabs. To help with making decisions with a bid there is wine and cheese. All the proceeds from the evening are going towards church funds.
