CHURCH OFFICE During Anthea’s absence, Rebecca Gebauer, will be looking after the Church Office. Please email or telephone the office as usual relating to any administration matters.  The office hours will be Tuesday-Thursday 12pm-4pm  until further notice.

CRECHE 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.

WELLINGTON CHURCH ROOF REPAIRS Scaffolding construction will remain in place until the completion of the project planned for 1 September 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.

PRAYER GROUP The Prayer Group meet regularly on a Tuesday – from 2.00 to 3.00 pm – at the Wilsons’ home.  Our prayer is strengthened when we unite with others, learning to pray by doing it.  We give thanks for those who use the weekly prayer notes and will welcome new companions in our Tuesday quiet time.

TRAIDCRAFT A new rota is about to be run off for staffing the Traidcraft Stall on Sunday mornings.  We would welcome some new volunteers for this rota, and so if you would be interested in helping could you please contact me, giving me a list of any dates when you would NOT be available.  Thanks. (Robin Green 357 5570).
