Interested in Purchasing a Pew?
At our AGM the Parish decided to relocate and sell the pews currently stored on our grounds. The ways of doing this included offering them to Parishioners for purchase.
The grass has been growing under the pews for long enough so we have moved quickly and are now working with a furniture maker to assess how to best realise the value the pews represent and expect in a few weeks to be able to advise indicative pricing, options for customisation and have some sample pews for presentation to Parishioners and the wider market.
It is encouraging that the furniture maker reinforced the scarcity and high value of the pews.
If you are interested in purchasing a pew, please register your interest by emailing Heidi in the church Office email@example.com
That way we can keep you informed of progress, options and pricing.

ARE YOU FINDING IT HARD TO GET INTO PRAYER?
Try the new prayer app for your phone – Lectio365 – a daily devotional resource that helps you pray the bible every day.
Written by leaders from the 24-7 Prayer movement, this resource helps you engage with Scripture to inspire prayer and shape your life. Lectio 365 is inspired by Lectio Divina, a way of meditating on the Bible that’s been used by Christians for centuries and it also draws on material for Pete Greig’s book, How to Pray.
P.R.A.Y. – Each day, Pause to be still. Rejoice with a Psalm and Reflect on Scripture. Ask for God’s help, and Yield to His will in your life. READ OR LISTEN ON THE GO. We strongly encourage you to give it a try! You will be blessed.
