 Can You Help?
Church Autumn Clean
Thank you to all who helped to give church an extra good clean - sparkling for Advent and Christmas!

Please help by being vigilant
Some churches in the Diocese have experienced recent break-ins and metal theft. Cuckfield , Bolney and Colgate have been targeted very recently. If you see anything untoward in or around church, please report it to the police and notify the churchwardens.

Plastic milk bottle tops
Please continue to save your plastic milk bottle tops and drop them in the bin in church (washed!) They raise funds for the Chestnut Tree Children's Hospice resources. It is worth noting that these tops cannot be recycled in your wheelie bin.
