Next Sunday, July 9th is Action for Children Sunday. We are holding a cake and produce stall in the hall after the morning service to raise money for this charity that seeks to improve the lives of thousands of vulnerable children and young people. We will be very grateful for any offers to make cakes or supply home produce items for the stall. If you are able, please bring your cake or produce to the hall just before the service (10.30am) and do come and support the event at the close of the service (about 11.30am). If you have any queries, please contact on Aylesbury (01296) Pauline Noble (484940), Jennie Torpey (581414) or Sandie Steeden (331278). There will also be a retiring collection for the charity at the close of the service.
