CRECHE: The crèche for the youngest children now meets in the foyer, with one parent staying with each child. Refreshments are available and toys are put out in good time each Sunday morning. There is also a live link on the screen from the Service, although it's not always easy to listen but we definitely feel part of Church. If you feel you'd like to take a turn, getting to know parents and making families welcome, do let Meryl know. You may only need to help once every few weeks and it's a valuable time.

FRONT BANK WORKING PARTY: We will be carrying out some more clearance work and ground work on the front bank on Saturday 3rd March, starting at 10am. The work will be physical and will involve working on the sloping bank. If you are able to help us for a couple of hours please let Peter Cox or Andy Crossley know (andy@thecrossleys.net or 07974 345436). Our first working party made a big difference and we are looking forwards to another session to help make the front of the church look more cared for and avoid the big cost of paying someone else to do it for us. Thanks for your support.

PRINTED AGENDAS and other papers for the Church Members’ meeting are available TODAY for members not on email.

BIBLE SOCIETY: There will be a Coffee Morning and March Morning Market on Saturday 3rd March at the East Croydon United Reformed church in Addiscombe Grove CRO 5LP. It runs from 10.30 -12 noon.
