Chaplaincy Updates - January to February 2024

Updated: Jan 13

Blessings Brothers and Sisters!

The ACFC Pastoral Team wishes you more blessings this year 2024! Here are some updates that we would like to share with you all below


Managing your Rubbish after the use of any gathering spaces (Meeting Rooms and Crypt)

All Hall hirers and users are responsible for bringing home their rubbish with them. All rubbish MUST be removed from the site at the end of their event. Please do not use the rubbish and recycling bins within the Church grounds as this is only for the residents who are living on the property.

The church crypt, parking, and adjacent premises MUST be left clean, and in good and tidy order. Additional charges may be incurred if rubbish is NOT removed off-site. Thank you.
