EMERGENCY FIRST AID AT WORK – We are running this course in the New Year for all those who would like to use this training in support of their work in the church, whether you are taking the course for the first time or renewing your certificate after three years. We have many church activities where it is requirement that a First Aider is present, so this training would be a great asset in the church ministry. If you are interested please contact the church office for further information and register your interest.
