Tickets for Methodist Conference/Coach

We have got tickets for the Sunday Worship at the Methodist Conference when Rev Paulo will be received into the Full Connexion of the Methodist Church in Great Britain. This is in Birmingham on Sunday 25th June. We have also booked a coach to leave Stoke Newington High Street at 6.30am and expected to return between 6 and 7pm on that day. We are asking for a donation of £20 to help to cover the cost of the coach. The circuit are subsidising the remaining cost of the coach. Please give the money to one of the ministers or to Helen Cornick (or a named person in your church) by 31st May. If you are not able to get it to them by that date, please contact Helen to confirm your attendance.
