GIFT DAY – The response to date has been very encouraging. Since the Gift Day envelopes were not made available as early as originally anticipated, there may be some members who wish to contribute, but as yet have not done so. Accordingly, it has been agreed to extend the end date to Saturday, 31st March. Envelopes remain available in the Centre, at the Church doors and went out with the March editions of the Church magazine. They can be returned either in the plate at Sunday services or placed in the Treasurer’s box in the corridor outside the Church office. Many thanks to all who have already contributed.
