Our next book will be “Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End” by Atul Gawande. The author examines his experiences as a surgeon in exploring the realities of aging and dying as well as the limits of what medicine can do. Please note we will now be meeting to discuss this on the 7th June.
Anyone is welcome to come along and discuss this book and surrounding issues.
Take part in the competitions - see attached poster.
Starts at 12:30pm.
Installation of the new audio-visual system will start on Monday 20th June. During the first week, we will not have any activities in the Church - the Wednesday 10am service will be in the Choir Vestry (please use the Choir Vestry entrance) and the Minus Fives Service will be in the hall. The normal activities in the hall on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday morning will continue. The evening activities will not be affected. There will be no sound system during the installation. We expect to have the new sound system working by Sunday 26th June, and everything up and running by early the following week.
We will be running a training session on the new AVS at 7pm on June 30th. Anyone interested in helping us to operate the system is welcome to come along.
Organ restoration: The statutory notice for the organ restoration has now been posted in the church. It is hoped that the Faculty will be granted in June and then the work can begin.
