Welcoming Kit: Session wishes to produce some brochures that can be used to tell people about our church and help us to welcome them. In particular they can be used while door knocking on the occupants of the new units in Beecroft. It is intended that the documents should use a consistent new logo for our church – which will also appear on the web site and other documents. A small number of the cards have been produced so that you can see what they might look like and, more importantly to provide comment on their content, layout and design. Variations of the logo are also available to look at. Comments can be left on a sheet which will be found on a table in the hall on 3 consecutive Sundays. Rod Best
