This week is Messy Church at 4pm and the theme is Thanking God. I have been thanking him since I had a puncture on Tuesday on my way to pick my grandson up from nursery, and a vicar stopped to help me, who was also a mechanic! Thank you God!

We need people to help with the activities, so please let Kerry, Tracy and Margaret know if you are can give a couple of hours, you will get pasta bolognaise and blackcurrant mousse as your reward!

Do remember that there is no 9.15am service this Sunday and next Sunday Peter and I are doing a Praise Service as there is a Team Service, which Jeremy is taking at 10.30am.

There is a sign up sheet at the back of the church for Super Sunday 8th july, followed by a Brunch. We will be having hot dogs and burgers, croissants and danish pastries and whatever you all can bring!

Have a good and blessed week.

Dear All

Weekly Sheet 27th May

Our 9:15am Praise Service this Sunday is Trinity Sunday, when we think about what Christians believe and say in the creed (latin for believe!) We believe in God the Creator, Jesus our Saviour and the Holy Spirit, who lives in us and gives us strength and power. Peter and I are doing the service, during Camilla’s leave – so please come and support us, if you are not away for half term, in which case, have a wonderful time with your families!

Can any of you possibly sign up for the church cleaning rota? This is NOT a difficult task – (once a year for an hour!) You can come as a family and sweep and dust a portion of the church, tidy the children’s corner or the vestry. You can come with another family you are friends with. There are about a dozen slots that need filling, please contact Joanna or Kristel if you can spare one hour.

We are still in much need of an Assistant Treasurer – please have think you might know someone who can help us out.

God bless

This Sunday we celebrate the Coming of the Holy Spirit in a rushing mighty wind with tongues of fire on the heads of the 12 Apostles gathered in the Upper Room at the Jewish feast of Pentecost (pente means 50 – 50 days after the Passover, when Jesus was crucified).
Peter preached to a huge international crowd, who all heard him in their own language! And 3000 were baptized that day! WOW!
Do come and join us for this very important Super Sunday service at 10am.

Thank you to all those who worked so hard to make our Spring Fair such a wonderful, happy occasion Thank you God for the fine weather till nearly the end. And thank you for all of you that came to support and enjoy yourselves. We raised £2970.75. Well done!

A special thank you to Zoe and her team ! If you have green fingers and you would like to get involved next year, please talk to Zoe.

Thank you to everybody who came to support Messy Church, when we thought about how much God loves us.

This Saturday is our Spring Fair 11-2pm. Thank you for all your contributions!
If you haven’t baked yet, please get baking and bring your yummy creations before 11am on Saturday, if you didn’t get them to the CCRC Friday morning 10-12.30 for wrapping. There will be people there on saturday from 9am onwards.

There is NO 9.15 service this Sunday as it is Messy Church at 4pm. Please let Kerry know if you can help as she has a birthday party to organize on Saturday, so would be very grateful for any assistance!

The following Sunday is Pentecost – The coming of the Holy Spirit – it used to be called Whitsun, short for White Sunday as people were confirmed in white on Whitsunday, and received the Holy Spirit. It used to be that once you were confirmed you had to receive Holy Communion at least 3 times a year, of which Christmas and Easter were compulsory and Pentecost  a preferred 3rd.
Do try and join us at our Super Sunday Service at 10am.
God bless you all and I look forward to seeing you at our Fair.
