     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
