Please contact the minister if you would like a chat with him about any aspect of church life, be it a Baptism, a Wedding, a funeral, if you or someone you know would appreciate a visit, or if you want to find out what membership of the church means.



email address box with more options circled

There are occasions when emails are distributed among a number of people which reveal all recipients email addresses in the ‘To…’ box.  As part of our Data Protection Policy the church seeks to discourage this.  Sometimes we have all done this by error, but some people may be unfamiliar with the way to make ‘blind copies’(Bcc) in order that addresses are not revealed to other recipients of the email.   We should all try and use the Bcc option when sending out emails to a group of people on church or associated items.  If you put the email addresses into the Bcc (blind copying) option, then they are not visible to the other people receiving the email. The Bcc option is below the Cc option and you can make it appear by clicking 'More options' (see illustrations above).  If you would like clarity on this then please ask either of the Session Clerks.

Note: If normally you are sending them only to a large group of people as "To......."  then simply put your own email in the "To...." box (or leave it blank) and everybody else's in the "Bcc ...." box. 

How do I send to "Undisclosed Recipients"?

In the To......... space type   "Undisclosed recipients" followed by your email address in

<              >

eg if somebody called Jim Bloggs is doing this and his email is jimbloggs@gmail.com

To : "Undisclosed recipients"



Thanks to those members of the congregation who have emailed information about changes needed to be made on the website. If you have not had a chance to look please could you check the information on the website is still relevant for your team or activity. It is used constantly by members of the public who wish to find out about all aspects of our church and its activities. Any suggestions would also be welcome about anything that might be added to the website.
