Open Church Meeting - on Tuesday February 25th at 7.30pm.  This is to discuss the “God in Love Unites Us”: report presented to the Methodist Conference 2019 and which deals with issues surrounding the Methodist understanding of Marriage; Human Relationships and Sexuality .

I can provide forms a sample of which is on the notice board. At the end of the period all money will be collected and forwarded to the charity. This is a personal effort for anyone wanting a challenge for Lent. Thanking you.

Parking In Hassel And Lucking's Car Park.  An important reminder to all car users that our use of the car park is only for disabled and frail people on a Sunday morning and only for the use of the Crossways staff on a Saturday morning. Special occasions like Christmas Fayre and Holiday Club need to be discussed with Mr Lucking directly, who is generally very cooperative and lets us use it free of charge. However we don’t want to spoil the present agreement, by parking at times outside of these arrangements. Your help in this matter is appreciated.
