Stewardship and Giving
This is a stewardship church, meaning that our members take our responsibility seriously for the church and world around us. The on-going mission of the church relies largely on time and money generously offered by lay members and friends of the church. We have a team of stewards and other officers who ensure that things run smoothly. They can be contacted or approached if you have any queries or problems. Our Senior Steward is Mrs Pauline Ward (01455 847965).
Community Outreach and Fundraising Events
We hold a number fund-raising and outreach events each year, along with various other social events. We have a meeting every so often for “Community Outreach, Fun, Fundraising and Exciting Events” (Events Team) which organises these events.
