Your Parish Centre Needs You! The Parish Centre is seeking volunteers to help run our busy and welcoming community space. It plays a key part in community life in Burley and is run by a team of friendly, fun and supportive volunteers. If you have a little free time on your hands we would love to hear from you! Please contact the office on 01943 864405 or call in to find out if the roles we have available might suit you.  At the moment, we particularly need more people to help with our caretaking. Even if you just have a small amount of time to spare you will be welcomed with open arms!

Inn Churches: REV (our youth group) will be cooking a meal for the guests staying at Inn Churches in the first week of February. They would welcome donations towards the cost of the ingredients; if you would like to donate, please contact Lizzie Reynolds. Donations for coffee, tea & toast in January will be for the Inn Churches Project.

Date for your Diary: Lent Lunches will start on 28 February. Our Church will be providing the lunches on 6 & 20 March, and Janet and Mary would welcome offers of soup and bread for either meal and help on the day. Please contact Janet Squire 862582 or Mary Dale 862662
