Giving in Grace - it has been eight years since our last giving campaign. Since then the costs of running the church have increased resulting in there being a deficit in the accounts. In July we will be sending information and a letter to members of the congregation and also to those on the electoral roll to encourage an increase in our giving. We very much appreciate all the support that is currently given to the church. Andrew


Aughton Music Camp - unfortunately this event will not take place this year due to lack of numbers.
