Don't Be a Scam Victim! 

Sadly, even at this time of 'Good Will to All Men' there are people who will try to trick you to part with your personal details &/or money. Below are a few places you can go to to learn how to avoid being a victim too. It is by no means an extensive list but a sample of what can be found with a simple search. If you are at all worried about your family, friends or neighbours, please pass the details onto them.

  • Martin Lewis's 'MoneySavingExpert' site is a very good starting point. Follow this LINK to learn all about Scams and how to be one step ahead of the scammers!
  • The Consumers Association, Which?, is another good source for information on avoiding Scams, and what to do should you fall victim to one. This page is a good starting point, but there are also other links to further useful information. You can now sign up for free scam alerts. Their emails will alert you to scams doing the rounds, and provide practical advice to keep you one step ahead of fraudsters.
  • Your Bank or Building Society are also there to help you.
  • You can find out about the latest scams by visiting https://www.independentage.org/get-advice/money/scams or calling them on 0800 319 6789, alternatively you may wish to contact a Scams Action adviser at Citizens Advice by calling 0808 250 5050.

Remember Banks & Building Societies:-

  • Will never ask for your PIN Number over the phone.
  • Will never phone you and ask you to move sums of money to another account.
  • Will never just arrive on your doorstep.
Remember, if the offer or deal sounds too good to be true, it more than likely is, so have nothing to do with it.
 
Beware fake NHS emails from vaccine scammers

This week (5/2/21), readers asked Full Fact to look into emails and text messages—purportedly from the NHS—which ask people to hand over their personal and financial information in order to book coronavirus vaccination appointments.

Screenshots of these emails have also been circulated widely on social media.

This is a real scam that we should all be aware of. The real vaccine is free and the NHS will never ask for your financial details in order to receive it.

The emails themselves contain replicas of NHS Test and Trace branding, which many people may struggle to identify as fake. 

Recipients are informed that they have been selected to receive the coronavirus vaccine “on the basis of family genetics and medical history”. 

After clicking a link to “accept the invitation”, they are taken to an online form which asks for financial information, Action Fraud said.

In the UK, the coronavirus vaccine is only available from the NHS and always free of charge. The NHS has said it will never ask for bank account or card details, PIN numbers or banking passwords, and will never arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine. You will never be asked to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as passports, driving licenses, bills or pay slips.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

Currently we are not offering tea, coffee and biscuits after the service due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, but it is hoped we can re start soon.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilet off the back of church.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10.30am, but when the music is led by our Worship Band, we have a few hymns &/or songs before the service starts. There is then a warm welcome from one of our Stewards. Church news & extra notices may also be given at this time. Our services are typically an hour long, with a mixture of hymns, prayers, bible readings and a sermon. One of our leaders will give the sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We finish with a final worship song before a final prayer is said. (Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.)

Our groups include:-

  • Tuesday Prayer Lunch

Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
  We hope that whoever you are, you will feel at home at our church.

Best Wishes
