Election Day Market: We will be holding a market at Caversham on Election Day, 23rd September, and plan a church cake stall. If you could spare an hour or two to look after the stall, please let Wendy know, and we will be happy to receive cakes, squares, loaves, cheese rolls, savoury items etc on Friday 22nd September.

 

World Vision Child Sponsorship: The new donor year for our sponsored child began on 1st August and an updated donor list is in the Caversham Church. Those who have supported this mission in the past will find their names on the list but we also welcome others to be involved.

Thank you all for your support.
