Because of the Coronavirus we have had to suspend all public worship services, and the groups and activities that happen throughout the week. This includes the APCM.

It’s very sad news but we know that God is sovereign and in control. He rules the universe with absolute power and wisdom, and we can trust him to work his good purposes out. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.” (Romans 8:28).

We will circulate a letter about how St Paul’s will do ministry in new and exciting ways! For example, we are continuing to record a weekly church service, and put it on YouTube and Facebook so we can all watch it together at 10am on Sunday!

Used stamps.  Please save your used stamps for the Bone Cancer Charity.  Please cut round the stamps, leaving a 1cm border and place the stamps in the box provided on the notice board by the kitchen. Bone Cancer Charity raised £30,000 last year from used stamps which has greatly helped this charity. Our local collection lady is very grateful to everyone at St Paul’s for all the stamps we have saved for the charity. Please continue to bring in any old stamps, thank you.
