St Helen's & St. Peter's Choir
We are looking for a new choir director. If you know of any one that might be interested in taking this on, please let Rob or John know. We would also welcome new members to the choir, especially altos, tenors and basses. It would be helpful if you could read music but not essential.
The weekly Bible Studies continue on Tuesday mornings and are currently using Table Talk, enabling us to discuss freely issues of faith, life and morality. Each session stands alone so please feel free to give us a try. Next meeting 14th July.

Monies raised as follows. £155.00 to be divided between both churches. £133.00 for the Junior Choir's annual outing, and £30.00 to St. Helen's Appeal fund from the Sewing Group. Thank you to everyone for their hard work in making this possible.
