Bev’s Last Sunday
It is Bev’s last Sunday on 23rd June and there will be a hog roast lunch from 12 noon onwards in the Rectory garden (there will be a vegetarian option too). Food and squash will be provided – if you want something different to drink, please feel free to bring your own. Sign up in the Church porch if you would like to come.
The annual church Herm trip will be on Wednesday 3rd July. Meet at the Inter Island quay at 5.45pm, the return boat is at 9.30-9.45. Adults £18, children under 16 £10 (pay on the night). Food is a buffet feast cooked paella style pans which will include a veggi one. If you’d like to go, sign up on the notice in the porch by Sunday 30th June.
There will be a ‘bring your own’ picnic in the Rectory garden after the 10am service on 7th July. It will be a great chance to socialise and there might even be a bouncy castle!
Actionaid would like to thank the many people who currently collect used postage stamps to help raise funds for the charity. If you don’t already save used stamps, then please consider doing this as it’s a great way to support this deserving charity. Saved-up stamps can be left at the back of Church, by the Food Bank.
Volunteers for Website Development Group
We are looking for volunteers for a website development group. Don’t worry, you won’t need to create the website, just help to prepare the content and information, so no IT knowledge is needed. If you’re interested in helping out let Rev Daniel know.
Thank you to all of those who have signed up to our new prayer chain. Please see Sallysara Windsor or Sandra Crittell for a copy of the list. (Please also see Sallysara or Sandra if you would like to join.) If you or anyone you know is in need of prayer for whatever reason, be it illness, moving house, job interviews, exams, etc., please let the Church wardens or Rev Daniel know.
We operate an envelope scheme for those wishing to make regular donations to support the running of the Church. This is a good way of providing a more predictable income for the Church which, in addition to covering expenses, also enables funds to be committed for initiatives and improvements. If you are interested in making regular donations by envelope or standing order please speak to Neil de la Mare or Rev Daniel.
Volunteers for the Church Creche
We are looking for more volunteers to help with the crèche – it doesn’t need to be every week. If you are interested please let Sue Johns know.
Volunteers for the Cleaning Rota
A few spaces have arisen on the church cleaning rota. If anyone would like to take part in this much appreciated act of service please speak to either Rev Daniel or Sara Dorey (email@example.com). You can make up your own team of about four or join an existing team. You will only be needed every 10 weeks if we can make another team.
“Mini Messy Churches” happen monthly (contact our Youth worker Kate Hatton).
We also have three Big Messy Church events each year. These are held in St. Martin’s Community Centre from 3.15pm and include supper.
