LATEST NEWS AND EVENTS
St Martin’s will be holding a half-term holiday children’s ‘Film Club’ in the Community Centre on the mornings of 18-20 February inclusive. (U-certificated films, of different genres.) Drinks and popcorn provided, parents can either stay and join in the fun, or complete a consent form with emergency details and special need notifications. (Parents of under 5s should stay, for adult/child ratios, please).
Please contact Sr Kate or Tim if you are able to help.
St. Martin’s Church Alpha course started on 7th February and runs for eight weeks. If you would like to know more, see the Alpha page on this website.
On 15th April, St Martin’s will be hosting a Confirmation Service, taken by Bishop Trevor. If any members of the congregation (adults or children over the age of around 10 years) would like to be Confirmed, please speak to Rev Daniel.
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.
