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. 
As of the 31st August, last year's total raised for the Roof Fund was £3,470.47 and since we began collecting for replacement of the slates we have raised £28,769.94.  This is thanks to gifts from all sources including donations, reclaimed tax, and Valerie's delicious cakes.  Many thanks to all who have contributed.  However, we still need to raise over £150,000.  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 in the morning
on 020 8487 8285 or e-mail the church by Thursday afternoon at the latest  by clicking here.
