Brilliant Car Wash by Junior Church

Junior Church members (and their families) worked so hard at washing cars and had such fun doing it. It was a great event and the word on the street is that cars have never been brighter and cared for with such love and fun.

Bless you Junior Church for raising over £230 for church funds and also for having such yummy cakes presented by such yummy mums.

Don't forget to thank those who organise these events. Thanks especially to Claire McWilliams.

Craft Mornings

Karen Eden has been organising craft mornings and the first one went so well, with the second one happening on March 23rd. These mornings are seeing many children attending and learning how to make wonderful things plus having Christian music playing and yummy refreshments.

Thank you to Karen and the team for all that they are doing in these outreach events. These are touching our community and the Church is seen in the community. Thank you all ladies for using your gifts and talents in this way. Keep up the good work.

Weddings

The Church of England has issued new standard costs for weddings and as a Church we will be conforming to these.

You can come and see Denise about booking your wedding and you will get a pack which will outline the costs, give you some guidelines on how to go about it and give you some help with choosing readings and hymns - plus, of course, some homework to do as you read a good book about marriage!

Mothering Sunday

Thank you to all the children, and to Rosemary Mortham, for the wonderful cakes to celebrate Mothering Sunday. The Junior Church worked hard in Rosemary's house to decorate cakes as usual. These were of a really high standard and children, thank you for making the day so special.

Lent is for Loving

Lent is for Loving, by Sheila Cassidy, was our Lent study material.

The Lent groups have gone so well; we have enjoyed fellowship and sharing together. The book has certainly been challenging and prompted much discussion. I know from feedback from other group attendees that it has been truly stimulating this year.

If you wish to join a permanent homegroup please do speak with Reverend Denise or Virginia Goode.
