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.

Bible Study
Please note this has stopped for a summer recess. Thank you to all of you who have supported me over the past year and I hope you have found it beneficial. The group will resume meeting on MONDAYS at 10.30am from Monday 7th September. Initially we will be following the lectionary readings prior to the Sunday service. Each session stands alone and everyone is welcome to join us on a casual or regular basis. For further details contact Sylvia.
