Pete, Donna & Keith: June 2018
This is a final reminder that our Circuit Consultation about A Plan for Growth is this Wednesday, starting at 7pm at Stoke Mandeville Church. In the light of a year-on-year reduction in membership of 3.5%, the Methodist Conference has urged all churches to address and answer the question, 'Do you have a growth or an end-of-life plan?
