Wimbish Church News


From the Church





 Wimbish Church needs your help!

Wimbish Church is a beautiful place and like all beautiful places there are always things to be done.

We have a great band of volunteers who do cleaning, flower arranging and churchyard jobs.  But this band of merry men and women is becoming depleted.  We urgently need more people to volunteer to help.

If you feel you can spare an hour our two every 4 to 6 weeks then we would love to hear from you, as the more people we get the less times they will have to volunteer. We need people to do flowers in Church, (no experience needed) and also people who can help in the churchyard.  We also need some people to help clean the church once every 6 to 8 weeks, which we usually do in pairs.

Please contact me if you think that you can help in anyway and we can have a chat about it. You can email me on tracey@hightrees.uk.com or ring me on 01799 523358.

Many thanks Tracey Thurgood-Buss.

St. Paul’s has been upgraded to become a comfortable meeting place used for church activities and is available for parties, social events, classes, clubs, meetings etc. Facilities include flip chart. screen and projector and a loop system. There is a small kitchen with cooking facilities and a disabled toilet.
