Additional Announcements

 If you examined our Annual Reports for 2017 you may have noticed a shortfall in your CWO contributions for the year. This was due to a software error. There were 53 Sundays in 2017 but the software only included 52 in the individual totals it produced for the Report. The returns made to Church House and to our Auditors were not affected nor were the records we hold against your CWO number.  The only place the error turned up was in the printing of the Report Book.  We most sincerely apologise for any distress this may have caused.

If anyone is thinking of going on any form of Mission or Outreach this summer they should take a support form from the vestibule, fill it in and return it to Robin Carson
