Our JMA collectors have been hard at work over the last year, well done to all collectors who raised a total of £1053.14 last year.

You can find out more about JMA on the Methodist Church website.
In October at the annual Bell Road JMA service 21 children and young people were presented with their awards at a very special service led by Revd Barbara McIntivey. A grand total of over a thousand pounds had been collected – very well done! Even better was the news afterwards that 5 new collectors are now joining the group. There should be record totals next year!
