Church Flowers
If you enjoy flower arranging then why not join the team and make the Church look beautiful each week? The flowers in Church are arranged by an ever increasing band of volunteers of all backgrounds.

Church Grounds
If gardening is your thing, why not put your skills to good use by helping to keep the Church grounds neat and attractive.

We welcome people from about 12 years upwards. As well as practice on a Friday, we ring on Sunday mornings, at some weddings and at special events. Old hands and complete novices are equally welcome. Practice on Friday at 7.30pm in the Tower.

Coffee Makers
We provide tea and coffee after every 10am service in the meeting room. Would you be prepared to make the coffee four times a year? Please contact Tina Rowe on the Loose Women link at the top of the page.

Transport to Church
We need people to join the team to take others who may be elderly or infirm to Church so that everyone who wishes to attend can do so. If you can help or if you need help, please contact Carol Blackburn.

Bereavement Support
After the funeral of anyone in the parish, the next of kin is contacted by one of our bereavement visitors who offer the support of a friendly visit.
