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. 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.

The Traidcraft Stall is closing today—CLOSING DOWN SALE – all stock (which includes some craft and Christmas items) at reduced prices. Traidcraft has had to cease trading after 44 years.
