Project Connect - Update 14th December 2017

We are planning to hold our first services in the refurbished church on Sunday 7th January. This is the target date, but it could change as the organ, audio or church set up could take longer than planned. The plan is that after the 11am service on New Year's Eve, to take the St Mary's chairs, chair racks and all remaining children's equipment and toys in a van and cars to St Mary's.

Help Required on New Year's Eve: Loading and then unloading chairs and equipment onto a van, practical help dismantling and then reassembling chair racks, carrying equipment to already-decided locations on the church site and hoovering and cleaning the store room at Oldfield. If you are able to help, please contact the church office.
