This year an entirely new church electoral roll has to be prepared in time for the AGM which is on SATURDAY 23rd MARCH at 11am in church. This means EVERYONE must complete a new form even if you are on the existing roll.

Thank you to everyone who used the FOODBANK box in church in the run up to Christmas. We had a good collection.
Whether you sent back an envelope, made cakes for the coffee morning or the school bake sale, and/or, attended the coffee morning, thank you very much. Your efforts helped to raise £390.52 this year.

Wondering what our banner is? The Lyn Valley Mission Community - from the sea!
The banner heading at the top of the page depicts an accurate land profile as viewed from the sea. All our churches can be seen in the correct positions (well nearly)! The names read in the correct order. The sun is setting in an unusual position but that's designer's licence for you!
