PROPERTY. The Methodist Church has a clear policy about volunteers working on the premises. It is essential that anyone planning to do any work either on the premises or in the gardens must obtain permission from the Property Committee, Eddie Andrew, Janet or Judith. This is because we need to have a Risk Assessment in place for the work being carried out for us to comply with our Public Liability Insurance. It is also a normal requirement that two people must be on the premises when work is being carried out. Please speak to one of the Property Committee if you would like any more information.

PRAYERS. As always we pray for our church family and for those who are anxious, those undergoing treatment or awaiting treatment. (I have spoken to Olive and she is doing quite well at home.) We pray for the plight of the Afghan people and give thanks for all the Aid Charities who are helping them to settle in new countries.
