LAUNCHPAD – CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS:  We are blessed with having lots of children coming to church on Sunday mornings.  The Launchpad leaders do an excellent job – but, given the increasing numbers, there is a need to recruit more volunteers both to help and lead Launchpad on a Sunday morning.  This would be on a rota basis – therefore not every Sunday.  If you would like to volunteer please contact Kathryn Robertson (This email address is being protected from spambots.
