Fletchers Landscaping helps look after our Spring Clean up, as well as Keeso Lumber (Richard & Anne) supply us with mulch. With the help of volunteers we work throughout the summer maintaining the beds, but our volunteer numbers have dwindled - we are always looking for volunteers to help us weed the beds!
We have full plans for the front of the church. (phase 2) but it will not be started until the work on the Stain Glass windows has been completed.
Thank you to everyone who has kindly donated financially or “physically” giving their time helping with the Gardens!

Over 90 Birthday Party
The over 90's party is to honour those people in the congregation who are 90 years and more. Last year there were 3 over 100! Because many of them are no longer able to get to church it is a combination celebration social event. We always have some form of musical entertainment and cake & ice cream it is sponsored by the Session so most of the people helping are Session . Volunteers are needed for transportation and we rely on family members if they are available. The party is held in mid June at the church.
