Magazine

A magazine costing 50p/month is carefully constructed each month, from the excellent contributions received from our parishioners. A years subscription (12 months for the price of 10, with free delivery) is available at the bargain price of only £5.00. If you would like to submit an article or notice for the magazine please contact the Editor Derek Simmons before the 12th of the month. All subscription and advertising enquiries are managed by Gordon Mountstevens.

FairTrade

Fairtrade LogoWe run a Fairtrade stall in the church on Wednesdays from 2pm-4pm and on Sundays after the 9:30am service, as well as at a few other times. We stock a wide range of items; sweets, biscuits, oat bars, cereal, rice, pasta, honey & jam, tea & coffee, kitchen roll etc. 15% goes to local causes. Which? magazine recently (March 2008) gave Fairtrade coffee a very high rating for excellent taste. Please bring some change with you. For more information please contact Andrew Brander.
