WELCOMING STATEMENT
We sometimes find ourselves like the disciples—knowing, but not understanding the One we worship. We have come together today, perhaps tossed about by the storms of life, wondering what will happen to us. But we are here. And because we are here, the Lord is also here. Let us come in faith that the one who stilled the storm so many years ago will also still the storms in our lives.

GIVINGS UPDATE – The Givings total for February was £7,373 giving an accumulated figure of £14,080 for the first 2 months of the year against a budget of £15,000. This leaves a shortfall of £920 on the budget figure. However closer examination of the figures shows that within the February figure, two cheques for a total of £1,000 were given by members of the congregation in respect of their annual givings. If we revise the £1,000 to a sixth, £166 our total is amended to £13,246 leaving a shortfall figure of £1,754. Should this trend continue we would be looking at a shortfall to budget of £10,524.
