Commemmorative Coin for Sale

As you know we have had a very special commemorative coin which was cast to celebrate our 900th birthday. The coin is mounted in a special edition card and costs £2.00. If you have not yet purchased yours why not buy some for family and friends? They are totally unique and make great gifts and keep-sakes and are not available anywhere else! They will be for sale after our morning services - or ask Tracy Dixon.

We always enjoy seeing new friends who wish to worship the Lord Jesus with us and if you come along to one of our services you can be sure of a very warm and friendly welcome. 

We hope our website will give you an idea of what goes on at St Mary's and the Church of the Ascension, Telham from week to week. There are many different activities that you can be involved in.
