Weekly Dates & Notes

The Sunday morning crèche will not be staffed from now until mid August.  However, the room will be available for babies/toddlers and accompanying adults who wish to use it.


PRAYER GROUP

The Prayer Group will not meet regularly until September but prayer focus will continue in the Wellington Notes. Maureen and Ann will be pleased to receive any issues for prayer.


Wellington Church Roof Repairs

Scaffolding construction will remain in place until the completion of the project planned for 1 October 2017.

Access to the building  During this period the only access to the church will be through the side door on Southpark Ave.  There will be no access through the front doors of the church without special permission and no access through the crypt outside door.

Car Parking The car park will be used by the contractor so car parking is very limited.  Parking is available in the University grounds. Enter by the Porter’s box at the main gate and exit by the lower, Pearce Lodge, gate. There are a number of disabled parking spaces available in the University car park on Southpark Avenue but only for holders of blue badges. Drive your car up to the barrier and use the phone to call the porter’s box, quote your blue badge number and the barrier should be opened.

Times are flexible so talk to Lizy after church or email her at Lizy@wellingtonchurch.co.uk if you are interested in helping. Thank you!
