*FREE* ENGLISH LESSONS Our Church is part of an ecumenical project based at the Catholic Parish Centre on St Alban’s Road, where free lessons are offered to anyone who needs help with learning English. (All levels: Beginners-Advanced). During the past year, our group has welcomed people from an amazing variety of countries - Greece, Spain, Libya, Bulgaria, Germany and Venezuela.
The lessons will start again after the Christmas break on 13th January 2020. We meet every Monday afternoon 1.30pm - 3pm and every Monday evening 7pm- 8.30pm during term time. If you know anyone who might be interested in attending, please tell them about us. They can just come along to a lesson- no need to book in advance. ALL NATIONALITIES WELCOME!

Please could you let me have your boxes for emptying at the beginning of January 2020. If you cannot get to church, I can arrange to pick up the boxes from you - ring me to arrange a time. Thank you. Shirley Eade (Tel.789217)


The Tesco table with donated unsold food items that have reached their sell by date but not there use by date will be at the back of the church each Sunday. Please take any items for yourself or to pass on to others. There is no charge but if you wanted to make a donation, it will go to the Benevolent Fund.

We are a caring church, but it is sometimes easy to assume that we are already aware of people in need of support. If you are aware of someone who might appreciate a visit (and/or some flowers), or of a situation that requires a pastoral response, please have a word with one of the Stewards.

Better to be informed twice than not at all!
