PCC meets next Monday, 23rd, 7pm in St Thomas’. Would all members please do their best to attend. One of the items we are discussing is Mission Action Planning – please come prepared to discuss the paper circulated at our last meeting.
Next Sunday, 29th January, there will be a Churches Together service for the Week of Christian Unity. This will be held at Salem Moravian Church at 3pm. The preacher will be Archdeacon Cherry. It would be encouraging to have a good turn out to show unity with our fellow Christians in Lees and district. If you don’t know where Salem Moravian Church is, please ask!
If any of our children or young people (or older people!) play a musical instrument, would they like to join a small group to play occasionally in church services? Please let Paul or Edith know if you might be interested.
A gentle reminder – our Tuesday morning Communion service is held every week at 10am. At St Thomas’. Currently we are in the community room (warm!) and we have a cuppa and a chat afterwards. If you are available and haven’t yet joined us do come along.
If you want to hold a social gathering or meeting do consider hiring our community room. It holds up to 30 easily, 40 with a bit of a squash, is warm and there is a kitchen and toilet. The cost is reasonable and we have links with a caterer if you are interested in that too. Audrey is in charge of bookings for the room.
Check out our blogspot too – and view photos on the linked facebook pages!
