Heathside Car Park ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) has started and there is a new arrangement for free Sunday morning (up until 1 pm) parking for those attending this Church. Please key in your registration number on a device in the foyer in the Church each time you are here. This can be on arrival or as you leave, which will help with congestion. The barrier will rise to let you out of the car park because your number will be recognised. In these early weeks of the new system it is still advisable to display your permit on your windscreen, available from the Welcomers

Care4Creation – Please take a look at the display boards in the Forum which are related to the recent worship series, the ongoing work of the Green Team and the Church’s environmental commitments.
