ANNUAL CHURCH MEETING

This meeting takes place after the morning service on Sunday, 21st July and will be chaired by Rev Viv Gasteen.   A bring and share lunch follows the ACM.

This is an important meeting so please make every effort to attend as Stewards, members of the Leadership Team and other committees are elected/re-elected.   Scarthe Spencer has already retired as Property Secretary and Jim Drake will be standing down as Booking Secretary with effect from the 31st August.

Some current members have served longer than is expected so if you would like to become involved in the day to day running of the Church please speak to Elaine Phillips, Church Council Secretary.

OUR CALLING

Do we just do “jobs for the church”?  Is there something more to the way we work within the church community?  What do we mean when we say, “put me to what you will” in the Covenant Service?  Viv Gasteen will be exploring this during morning worship on 21st July.  If you would like to join Viv to prepare this service please let her or Graham Gladden know.  The ACM will be after the service and will be followed by a faith lunch.  A meeting to plan the service will be at 2 p.m. at church on Tuesday, 9th July.  If you want to be involved but can’t make that time, please let us know.

CARERS SOUP ‘N’ SUPPORT

We are planning a trip out on 1st August so if you would like to come on the trip but didn’t come to the last meeting please let me know.

MERSEYSIDE FOR ROMANIA

We are sorry to announce that we can no longer send goods, shoeboxes or money to Merseyside for Romania.

Losing the warehouse made collection and dispatch of goods impossible.  Transport Manager Dave, suffered a stroke and, worst of all, co-ordinator and chief organiser, Jean Hickson, has been crippled by inoperable arthritis.  Unfortunately there is now no-one who can take goods and cash out to Pitesti.

We have been helping Romania since 1997 and we have supported Father Constantin Mariora since the spring of 1998 and we are very sad to lose that link.
