It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death of Gwen Miller. Gwen has not been well for the last few years but had kept all of her faculties and her faith remained steadfast. She has now moved on to meet her Saviour face to face. Our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

Many thanks to everyone who packed a shoebox with gifts for children in parts of the world where they were unlikely to receive any gifts this Christmas.
The total number of boxes taken to Chesterfield (the local centre), including those from Breadsall C of E School (35) was 51 boxes.
To all persons who had used the ‘Goodbox’ device for cashless donations, please be aware that due to a defect in the system, all donations made before 13th October have not been processed. The unit has been replaced and is now working normally.
The supplier has made good all donations recorded by the machine and a total of £60 was raised for the Bishops Harvest Appeal in this manner.
We apologise for the issues and encourage anyone who wishes to make cashless donations to the church to use the machine again in the future. We closely monitor the device to ensure no data is lost again.
Also, please note that these donations are totally anonymous – no data regarding donor name, card number etc, is recorded.
