Quiet Space 22 January at 7:30pm

Our first Quiet Space reflection for 2019 will be on Tuesday January 22nd at 7.30pm in church. We will be basing our reflections around the need to see ourselves, our life experiences and our relationship with God through new eyes. The title of the first reflection will be ‘healing our disappointments’. As always there will be some input from the front with plenty of time for silence and quiet music. If you have never attended Quiet Space before why not give it a try at the beginning of a new year? All are welcome.

Traidcraft

You’re probably aware of the problems currently being experienced by Traidcraft plc. As a result of the need for the trading company to significantly downsize there are serious implications for Traidcraft Exchange, the development charity. Consequently there is an urgent appeal for funds for Traidcraft Exchange to help producers find alternative markets and this is detailed in the poster on the Traidcraft board in the Legh Room. Do please read the poster and respond if you possibly can.
