Quilting Group Taster Session

Are you interested in crafts?  Would you like to be involved in a group which makes Prayer Quilts?

What are Prayer Quilts? They are beautiful quilts which can be given out to people, prepared for them with love and prayer, it may be to someone who is ill, it may be to a young child, or someone who is sad…to let them know the church cares.

Come and have fun, learn a new skill, make new friends and help others!

Do you have to be a sewer?  No, you will be given all the help you need.

Sewing machines will be provided, in fact everything you need will be provided - we just need you!

There will be an afternoon to find out more on Monday 3rd April at 2pm at RMCC. All welcome.

All We Can

More than 10 million people in East Africa and Yemen are facing starvation and famine: "Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death. Many more will suffer and die from disease," said Stephen O'Brien, UN Humanitarian chief at a meeting of the UN Security Council last Friday, 10 March.
