Reader and Minister Rotas for the summer
Our usual rotas are suspended for the height of the summer due to the number of people away. We therefore appeal to readers and ministers who know they will be around to go to the sacristy and sign up for any of the five weekends listed.

Young People’s Summer Outing
We look forward to an afternoon of climbing at The Castle Climbing Centre on Monday, 31st July. Please note that booking is now closed.
Fr Terry has decided to try and out-Trump Donald Trump. Fr Terry is trying to compose a Tweet each day with a spiritual message in 140 characters. He would love it if you followed him on @anamnesiskyriou (which means, in Greek, Remembering the Lord).
Ramp and lawn
The new ramp is now open! It provides smooth and easy access to the main door of the parish centre. However, until railings are installed we still need to ask children not to play on the lawn. We ask for and very much appreciate parents’ cooperation in this matter. Many thanks.
