THE ROOF FUND 
The Roof Fund was launched to raise funds to pay for replacement of the roof slates which, after more than a century, are coming to the end of their lives. 
A generous donation was made by the BCA as a result of the profits from the
Barnes Food Fair in September. 
As of the 1st September this year, donations from all sources since September 2016 amounted to £5,639.01 - making a grand total of £24,769,94.
This is
thanks to some generous donations, reclaimed tax, and Valerie's delicious cakes.  Many thanks to all who have contributed.  However, we still need to raise over £160,000.  We are applying for grant funding and forms are now available to donate or covenant gifts.
If you feel able to assist in planning and/or organizing fund raising events, please speak to Valerie.
***
CRECHE
On Sundays the creche is available on the right hand side of church.
We are happy for any child to remain in the main service but if you would like to use the creche
you are welcome to stay with your child or leave them with the helpers.
We expect children to make a noise so please don't worry if your child cries or makes a noise,
please do whatever is best for you and them.
We have an active Safeguarding policy and all our volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults have a DBS certificate.
Hearing Assistance

We have a loop system, however, if at any time you cannot hear during worship please do let the person operating the sound desk know (during a hymn or at another appropriate moment) and
they will try to address the issue. We want the entire congregation to be able to hear
the service so please don't be shy about letting us know.

If you have any information for next week's notices, please call the office
on 020 8487 8285 in the morning or e-mail the church by Thursday afternoon at the latest  by clicking here.
