Eco tip for February: Empty plastic bottles that held food or drink, toiletries or household cleaners can be put (without their tops or pumps) in your Blue topped recycle box. Did you know that one recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours. Plastic can take up to 500 years or more to decompose.
Prayer Space In the prayer area at the back of church there are cards for you to leave a; Testimony, Things to Pray for, as well as words for us as a Church. The Staff team will then take time to pray during for them during the week. Please place completed cards in the offertory box or give to a member of the clergy.
