For various reasons the Christian Stewardship programme in any parish requires renewal from time to time. People move, die, or leave. New members of the parish are not involved. People don’t think to amend their giving in line with inflation and/or their income. The social/pastoral needs of the parish change. For all of these reasons it is time for us in Saint Bartholomew’s to embark on a Renewal programme. In order to kick-start the process we will be holding a Cheese and Wine event on Thursday 17th September (7:00pm to 8:30pm) in the Order of Malta Hall beside the church. Please put that important date in your diary today!
