Can you spare 2 hours once a month? Give your name to Ruth or one of the Stewards. Thank you for your Messy Church prayers and support.

FLOWER DISTRIBUTION TEAM

Are looking for more people to help distribute small flower arrangements locally approximately every five to six weeks on Mondays and at Easter and Harvest. There are usually only two or three deliveries. This gives us a chance to keep in touch with people who are sometimes housebound, not well or who are celebrating special occasions and let them know that the church fellowship is thinking of them. If you can help please phone Wendie or Lindy.

MISSION WORK IN THE COMMUNITY

The stewards have agreed that as part of our mission work in the community, on Saturday, March 28th we will be in attendance in Poulton Square handing out a Palm Cross, a creme egg and a note of our Easter services. If you feel able, please could you donate one or more creme eggs to be distributed. Please hand them to a steward or leave them in Coffee Plus. Alternatively, if you would prefer to donate some money we will be happy to buy the eggs on your behalf. Please do not give them to Rev Paul as he will eat them !!! Please ensure that they are still “in date” until after Easter.

Thank You.

Barbara Banes.

If you feel able to join us in the Square on the 28th March from 10am to 12 noon (even for half an hour) please have a word with Rev Paul or any of the Stewards.
