Bring & Share lunches – future dates
We will be having Bring & Share lunches on 1st March and 17th May. Please put these dates in your diary.
If you feel relatively new to St John's, our church lunches are a good opportunity to meet and get to know others.
Real Easter Eggs
Would you like to share the real meaning of Easter when you give your children, grandchildren or neighbour's children an Easter egg this year? The Real Easter Egg is made from Fairtrade chocolate and is palm oil free, with plastic free packaging. Each egg has a 24 page Easter story-activity book, and there are milk or dark chocolate versions available.
If you are interested, please sign up with your order on the poster in the Church Extension or contact Judi Rigby.
'Harambee' - proposed Uganda Mission 2020
We are currently assessing interest in making a return mission visit to Uganda this summer. If you are considering participating or would like further information, please speak to Martin or Helen Barber.
If you subsequently decide you would like to join the team, please confirm your intention with Martin and Helen by Sunday 15th March, at the latest.
For further information, you can also read the latest Nyakabungo Parents' Primary School newsletter or see the new sponsorship brochure in the Church Extension.
The Fisherman's Tale
We are delighted to confirm that we will be hosting Peter and Julie Fraser, from Bible Encounter Trust, in June 2020, for their new story trail, 'The Fisherman's Tale'. As with their previous story trails, this will be a fully immersive experience for our local schools, telling the story of Peter the Disciple.
We will, of course, need a considerable volunteer work force for this event to run smoothly, so we would like to give you some dates for your diary now. Set-up will be on 13th, 14th, 15th & 16th June. Schools and other groups will be visiting in the daytime and evenings from Wednesday 17th until Friday 26th June. We will also be open to the public on Saturday 20th June. Take-down will be on the afternoon and evening of Friday 26th June, and during the day on Saturday 27th June.
Please keep a look out in the notices for more information about how you can help nearer the time. Thank you.
Church Holiday 27th - 29th March
Please can we encourage you to book for the Church Holiday, 27th - 29th March, at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick? A weekend away with the church family is a great opportunity to deepen our relationships – both with the Lord and with one another.
Mark Pickles, director of the North West Gospel Partnership and a former curate at St John’s, will be our speaker. Please do consider joining us for what we pray will be a fantastic weekend.
If you have lost your booking form, there are some available in the Church Extension.
