Church Cleaning Team

Our Church always looks and smells clean thanks to the volunteers who clean it on a two weekly rota basis. We also have special cleans a couple of times a year, followed by some food to renew strength! The more people who help, the easier it is. People on the rota are on duty about 3 times per year.
