Lent Lunches

Lent lunches start on Thursday 7th March at 12.00noon, and will be held weekly, for six weeks. All the meetings will be held in the chapel schoolroom, hosted alternately by St John`s and St Peter & St Paul`s churches.

They will follow the usual format with soup and a roll, cheese and biscuits and a hot drink. Each will be accompanied by a short talk.

The charge is £2.50 with the money going to charities selected by the two churches.

Our church has chosen to donate to WaterAid this year. Please come and support this worthy cause. All are welcome!

Lent Course

As in previous years there will be a Lent Course in church. Contact Diane Lukehurst for details.

If you would now like to be included please ring 813068 for a form, provided you will be 16 or over within twelve months of application and you fulfil the declaration requirements, related to church membership, included on the application form.

Christian Aid Week.

Christian Aid Week.  12-18 May 2019.

Christian Aid has more than 70 years’ experience of working in partnership to support communities to thrive. We tackle the root causes of poverty so that women, men and children the world over are strengthened against future knocks. And if disasters happen, we get people the help they want straight away.

We always need local volunteers for the door to door collections. If you feel that you can help please ring 813068. In addition it is hoped that a collection will be made at the May Tea and Chatter afternoon in aid of the charity.
