Today we welcome Peter Haslam (Pete) who is joining us until the end of April. Pete is a trainee Reader on placement with us from St Barnabas.
Building Committee meets Monday (20th) 7.30pm at St Thomas’
Exploring Prayer session tomorrow, Tuesday (21st ) at 7pm in St Thomas Community room. We explore more imaginative ways of praying using music, pictures, meditation, scripture and more. Whether you have joined us before or not all are welcome!
Advance notice.. several people have expressed interest in doing the intercessions in our church services. It is very good to have many different people doing this, including our year 6 young people. To help and encourage I plan to lead a session on this at St Agnes Church on February 28th at 7pm. This will last no more than an hour. Attending does not commit you to leading the intercessions!
Churches Together are holding our now traditional Lent lunchtime sessions again this year. The theme is the Passion in Art. Tuesdays in Lent, 12 noon start at Zion Methodist Church.
March 7th will be the first session. The art/discussion is followed by a simple soup and roll lunch. All are welcome! Poster and invitations att the back of church.
Is there anyone willing to take over putting together the newsletters? It isn’t a big job, just using information given to update the newsletter and dates each week and e mail them round. Karen prints a few copies once a month for each church. If you might be interested please talk to Edith.
There are still some tickets available for the Rose Queen Dinner Dance at the White Hart on Friday March 10th. Tickets (£35) from retinue mums and Karen Jakeman.
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.
Check out our blogspot too – and view photos on the linked facebook pages!
