Stephen Coles, our minister, following surgery to remove a large thyroid lump in May was diagnsoed with a very aggressive cancer in June. We are very pleased to confirm, however, that after much prayer throughout Torbay and beyond our Lord Jesus Christ has completely healed Stephen. A recent CT Scan showed that the cancer that was removed had not spread as it usually would. We are praising the Lord.

Hope Now - Ukraine
We are pleased to report that a full car load of Aid for Ukraine was taken to Hope Now in Southampton to head off on Monday 15th April. A big thank you to everyone who has donated items, and to David Dunbobbin who drove the 3.5 hours there and back.

Cash Donations

Please note that the church is being charged for cash banking when this exceeds £2000 per month (which is nearly all months). All the amount is charged for, including the first £2000. The bank also charge for cheques in a similar way, but we receive fewer of these, so cheques instead of cash would be welcome. However, all donations, by whatever method, are very much appreciated. (On-line transfer or standing order direct to the bank do not attract any charge.) Please ask about Gift Aid, or to receive details of the church's bank account.
