What’s Happening this Week
You may have heard the phrase GDPR recently, as the laws governing the ways in which organisations handle peoples’ data (in our case names and contact details) have just changed, and we as a church we need to comply with these laws. This means that in order to send out the newsletters and rotas by email, or to ring you about church matters, we need your consent. Although we don’t often send things by post we are asking about that too ‘just in case’! This consent needs to be explicit and in writing.Please fill in a simple form which is available at all our services and from the church office, and let us have it back asap. If you are visiting us today we would love to be able to keep in contact with you – there is a visitors’ form which you might like to fill in. I realise that this is not very exciting but we do have to do it – and the bright side is that we will know all our contact details are correct!
Pastoral Care – if you or someone you know needs help or support, please contact the Church Office on email@example.com
Used Stamps please hand in your used postage stamps and we can pass them to Lepra, please give to Jim Cockett at St Mary’s or to the Church office thanks.
