If you would like to donate cakes to the sale, they would be most welcome. Please bring them along at 10am. Any cakes left over will be sold after the service.
Earth Hour
People and Planet meet on Saturday 25th March at 7pm at Church for an evening to mark Earth Hour. We'll share a good meal before turning the lights out at 8.30. All are invited to bring a reading, a prayer, some music, a quiz during our hour in candle-light. The focus will be on God's Creation of our World, before we make our own pledges. As WWF says, 'Many small actions make a BIG difference'. Starting in Sydney, Australia, at 8.30pm, Earth Hour will sweep around the Earth, with lights going out for 60 mins.in each time zone. Iconic structures and buildings will go dark - Sydney Opera House, Eiffel Tower, St. Paul's Cathedral - come and be part of it. Let Sue Charlton or Enid Barron know you'll be with us.
