Next church cleaning session

 Saturday 22nd June  between 9:00 – 11:00am. 

All welcome to come along and help!

We are all members of the God’s church, so it would be lovely if you  could spend just half hour or so  to help make the church look nice and clean; you don’t have to stop the whole time. We generally have the same very few people turning up to help each time, it would be great to see some different faces, please come and help if you can – the more helpers we have the quicker it can be done!

The more the merrier!

Thank you your help will be greatly appreciated

5th May  from 2:00pm

All welcome

 

If you haven’t yet ‘sponsored a tile’ at £25 – this is a great way to raise funds to raise funds for the renewal of the north aisle roof of Altham Church.

Forms are available at the back of both churches – you can have your name or that of a loved one written on the tile you sponsor.

Thank you
