  • A message from the F&P Committee:
     Summer holiday time is fast approaching
    and with that comes a “quieter time” in terms of attendance here at Rothwell United.  
    And during that period we continue to try and meet our expenses and the challenging maintenance needs of our small but busy church.
     So if you are planning some time away this summer, then here are a couple of suggestions so that your gifts and offerings may still reach their deserving destinations without interruption. more
    We have learned with regret of Keith Findley's decision to step down as Rothwell's Treasurer effective at the end of 2018. We are looking for someone interested in serving Rothwell in this capacity. This could be a role that is split between two individuals with complementary skills, as has been the case in the past. If interested, please contact Scott Udle at udle@rogers.com or 613-220-7685 or Cam Bowes at  cam.bowes@yahoo.ca or 613-680-3917
