YOUR CHURCH NEEDS YOU!
From the Churchwardens
As our church becomes ever busier and we welcome more and more people through our doors, we are looking for additional support in the following areas.
2 New assistant wardens -Duties would include being licensed to serve the chalice and join the duty rota.
2 Verger assistants - Duties would include supporting Verger to cover Weddings, Funerals, counting collections etc.
These would not need to be licensed.
Key Team - This would ideally be a team of 6 people each with their own key who could be called upon to open and close the church & if required oversee events such as school services, Music Concerts, fundraising events and setting out the tables on a Sunday after the services.
If you would like help in any of the above roles or know of someone else who may, please speak to Val or Jayne

CHORALE ROBES DE FRANCE !
Recently Rachel was able to pass the old St Andrew's choir robes to a choir in Belgium.
She was thrilled to get this picture last week with a message from Graham Look of the choir.
"Dear Rachel, We thought you would like the photo. The surplices have washed clean very well and are here drying on our washing line
in France. With luck they and cassocks could be in use by Christmas. I will keep you posted. Thanks again, Graham"
