Do you have a welcoming smile?

Home » News » Historic Churches Ride and Stride

And if you do, can you spare an hour on Saturday 9th September? We're looking for people willing to welcome folk from other churches who will be dropping in at our church at various times throughout the day as they take part in the annual "Ride and Stride" event.
All you have to do is to offer them the drinks and biscuits that will be provided, to show them where the toilets are, to sign their cards, and to convince them that Alton Methodist is the most welcoming church in the whole area!
It's just for an hour — choose which time you would like, and simply add your name to the list on the notice board in the foyer!
Your help is appreciated.
