CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 14 – 20th MAY We are planning this year’s Christian Aid Week house–to – house collection and need YOUR help. If you have usually collected and ARE able to do so again this year, you will be contacted in the next few weeks. If you have usually collected, but are NOT able to do so this year, please let either Susan McLean (852065) know as soon as possible. If you have not collected before, but feel this is a way you could help some of the world’s poorest people, please contact Susan.

CHILDREN'S & YOUTH WORKER: We are sorry to report that Jill Harrison, the part-time Children's & Youth Worker employed by the Wylam and District Churches, has tendered her resignation. At present Jill is expected to remain with us until the end of June and options for the future are currently under provisional consideration. We will report more on this situation when there is more to say but, for the time being, we express our initial thanks to Jill for the excellent work she has done.
