This coming Sunday 6th December is our annual Gift & Toy Service. You are invited to bring along new gifts and toys for any ages from babes to teenagers and especially for children age 5 and under. Please don't wrap them as the staff at the Action for Children family centre to where they will be taken, will need to match the gift to the child. If you prefer to make a money donation, please bring it in a sealed envelope to give in at the same time. Rolls of gift wrap will also be very welcome. The service will be conducted by our Minister Rev. Helen Kirk and starts at 10.30am.
