Liz Dent’s latest publication –a Guide to St Thomas’ Church is now available(£2.50).  This is a very interesting guide to what is in the church. We plan an open morning in May when you can come along and explore our church with the book as a guide.

We hope to have St Thomas church open regularly on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, so people can drop in, look around, pray or just sit. For this to happen, we need volunteers to sit in church (Could be in the back room !) Can you help with this? Can you spare an hour now and again? See Edith or sign the list please.

Confirmation. Now is a good time for adults who have not been confirmed and children in Year 6 or above to think about Confirmation. Classes will begin soon after Easter in preparation for the Confirmation service on Sunday July 9th. More details later, but if you are interested please give your name to Edith.

Our Annual Church Meeting is onApril 23rd, following a parish service at St Thomas. At this meeting we elect Wardens and PCC members. Could you please begin to think about your role in the life of our church with this in mind. If you live in our parish (or attend regularly) and are 16 or over you should be on the Electoral roll. If you aren’t please complete a simple form so you can be added.

Now we are in Lent there are no flowers in church. Looking forward donations towards the flowers for Easter at St Thomas would be gratefully received by Audrey or Lesley. At St Agnes would people please volunteer to provide flowers by adding their names to the list.
