A Growing Church

A Growing Church:  LyCiG* meeting – 10.30 am next Saturday March 23rd in our new large meeting room.


Who doesn’t feel uplifted when our Church is full?


A growing congregation is what we’d ALL like to see at St Mary’s, so John McCabe asks ALL who can to come together for a couple of hours next Saturday morning to hear and share ideas about how it could happen. Take a moment to glance at the “Taster” attachment, which outlines the programme and introduces some of the topics.


John emphasises that:  

1. It is an all-church project, not just for 5 people!

2. It will be a most worthwhile and rewarding morning.

3. John will be following the programme launched with great success by Danny Wignall, Diocesan Mission Adviser.



You are requested to please respond by emailing the Church Office or signing up on Sunday in Church.
