Lenten Project Fund Raising 2018

Sunday lunch for the homeless


The Parish has now joined a group of churches that provide Sunday lunch for the homeless catering for 30-40 guest each Sunday.

As we were the last to join the only date in 2018 is Sunday 30th December.

I have accepted this date on behalf of the Parish hoping there will be approximately 15 volunteers to help set up tables, serve meals, wash up and talk to guests.

For 2019 we will expect to host lunch two or three times a year.

Birthday thank yous


May I thank everybody for their generosity on the occasion of my 60th birthday. I was very touched by all the cards, pictures and presents that were given to me last Sunday. Last week I looked over the Proms programme and have chosen a few to attend; Debussy, Berlioz and Verdi and will now wait until ticket sales begin on Saturday 12th May. Your present will make for some enjoyable summer evenings.

Christian Aid Week


Peter Sweetman is appealing for volunteers to delivery and collect envelopes for Christian Aid Week.

There is a list of road that need covering at the back of the church. If you are able to cover one of the road listed please put your name down on the list also at the back of the church.

Thank you.

Corpus Christi Procession


The Corpus Christi procession will take place on 3rd June at 12:00pm on Sunday and will involve processing around the property culminating with Benediction on the back lawn.

All Frist Communicants would be welcome to participate in the procession and strew petals in front of the Blessed Sacrament.

After the procession there will be a parish lunch to which the housebound will be invited to participate. If anyone might be able to help collect the housebound and take them back home please contact the Parish Office.
