TOY SUNDAY (December 1st). Traditionally this is a Service of giving when unwrapped presents are presented in the service and donated to Norway House in time for Christmas. Presents for children of all ages are welcome, but particularly for those between the ages of 11-16. There is a box at the back of the church available for donations throughout November. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 1st December.’ The First Sunday planning team.
