Member's Privacy Notice

We have had to make a minor edit to the Privacy Notice for members, taking into account the Member's Directory is now available online in our password-protected Member's Area on our website.

The amendment is in red: "We would like to include your name and contact details in our Members’ Directory, which will be available to all Church Members online in our website’s password-protected Member’s Area, or in hard copy form as appropriate."

We don't require every member to resign a new document, but if you have any concerns, or wish to view the entire document and are not able to do so online, kindly see Ted Winter at the earliest opportunity.

There is no need for you to do anything if you agree to continue with the amended Policy.

First Aiders Training

We have a provisional date for Saturday 27th July for First Aid Training. If you are on our current First Aiders list and your certificate is about to expire, or you wish to be trained and join the team, please see Ted Winter asap to advise if you are available.

Request from CAP

CAP has a client moving into accommodation, starting virtually from scratch. We have managed to source quite a few items, but much more is needed to make a house a home.

A list will be on the corridor noticeboard, or email me to see a current list.

Many thanks for all you do to help.

Envelopes for BMS and HM

If anyone would like a set of envelopes for 2019 to support our Baptist Missionary Society and Home Mission serving our Churches at home, please speak to Rosemary Croft.

Church Flowers

Many thanks to all who provide the flowers for the church week by week. Please remember that YOU are responsible for giving them out at the end of the service. If that is not possible, please contact Jan McKie. It is such a pity for them to be wasted when someone who is ill, shut in or just needs cheering up could be enjoying them.

BMS Birthday Scheme

When you celebrate another year of life, would you consider making a donation to BMS World Mission? Your donation will be used to promote the work of doctors, dentists, etc. and also includes work towards disease prevention and positive health. On your birthday, you will be given a card and an envelope in which to put any donation. For more information, please contact Judith Dodd or Rosemary Croft. Thank you.

Stamps for Mission

There is a container on the ‘Hub’ desk for any used postage stamps. 

Please take care when removing the stamps from envelopes. Kindly leave a gap around the outside to ensure that the perforations are not damaged. Thank you.
