Summer holiday meals
We are exploring the possibility of setting up a project to provide meals in the summer holiday for needy families. This would be a joint partnership between our two churches and other local businesses and community groups. At this point we are in the early planning stage, and are looking for people who might be interested in being involved, both in planning and in practicalities. If you would like to be part of this, please speak to Fr Chris ASAP.
Fr Chris is looking to form a new team of people for pastoral visiting. This may include: visiting people who are sick or housebound, follow-up support of funeral and baptism families, and/or other visits. Training and other support will be provided. If you feel this is an area of ministry which God might be calling you to, please speak to Fr Chris.
Would those who would like their loved ones to be remembered at either the day of their death, or birthday or any other special anniversary please record their names etc. against the nearest Sunday to that date. The donation towards the Sanctuary Lamp should be given to the Treasurer Kerry Parsons.
The Rainbows are collecting used postage stamps to raise funds. Please would you save any stamps you get and pass them to Bev Jones at St. Andrew’s. Thank you.
