Today we are admitting a large group of children to communion at each ofour churches. We welcome them on this the next stage of their Christian journey, and we thank Katie and Karen who have prepared the children for this step.
Exploring Prayer sessions will begin again on Wednesday March 30th 7.30pm in the vicarage. This is more or less a ‘repeat’ of the sessions held last October, but people who attended then are most welcome again! There will be 5 or 6 sessions lasting around an hour. We will explore a variety of different ways of approaching prayer. They are stand alone sessions but please do attend as many as you can.
If you are interested in being Confirmed in July (24th) please give your name to Edith or Ruth. There are many adults in our congregations who are regular attenders……is this going to be the year you take this step?
Tickets are now on sale for the Big Band Gala Night on the 2nd July. £10 adults, £5 children (although probably only suitable for older children}, includes buffet supper. From the 20th April any tickets remaining will be made available through "Churches Together", and later to the general public, so to avoid disappointment it's best to buy your tickets early. There will only be 120 tickets in total because of the seating capacity at St. Edward's Hall, so if you are unable to come because of other commitments please don't buy a ticket as we would love to have a "full house" on the night. However, if you wish to support the event in another way, donations of cash or raffle prizes will be gratefully received.
