CHILDREN’S LITURGY GROUP – after a long break due to the shortage of volunteers and the lack of suitable accommodation it is hoped that the group will recommence in September of this year. As always volunteers are required to get the group going again. We are starting the process now due to the legal requirements regarding the care and protection of children and vulnerable adults. This process not only protects the child but the volunteers as well. It is intended to hold information sessions to give advice and guidance and hopefully allay any fears about what the process involves. It should be stressed that the process is not optional. Please put your name forward and don’t be put off by the legal requirements, come along to the information sessions and get all the details. If you are interested please leave your name and contact telephone number on the sheets provided at the following locations: All Saints’ Church – at the back of church and side porch. Harryville – in the entrance hall. Crebilly – in the porch.

CEMETERY SUNDAY IN CREBILLY will take place this year on 25 May.
