If you come along to our coffee bar between 10am and 12 noon this Friday, October 9th, you can help to make a difference to epilepsy sufferers. We are taking part in Epilepsy Action's national Tea and Cake break to help the 600,000 people in the UK living with epilepsy right now.
This event follows on from our summer Songs of Praise service which raised £364.48 for the charity. Epilepsy Research UK Chief Executive Leigh Slocombe has sent the church a letter of thanks. We look forward to continuing our support with this week's event. So if you like cake and fancy a cuppa, you know where to come. The kettle will be on.
