Parish BBQ at The Rectory
Sunday 4th September,
12:30pm – 3pm.

The Parish BBQ last year was a most wonderful success with over 100 people linked to our churches attending on a sunny Sunday afternoon.  We hope you will come along this year.  We will provide burgers, sausages, buns, beer, wine and soft drinks.  We’d love it if you could bring either a salad or a pudding to share.

Don’t worry if you didn’t RSVP – there is PLENTY of food and drink.  Just come along!



School starts next week!
Parents and carers, why not drop in to St Helen’s Coffee in the Chancel after drop off on a Monday. Free Storytime for little ones from 9-9.30am, coffee and cake – what’s not to like? Bring this image on your phone for a free coffee in September! Spread the word!!





LAST CHANCE to share your views on our worship…
As we emerge from the pandemic, as we set a new vision for our church, and as we recruit a new Director of Music, now is the moment we’d like to hear your views on different aspects of our WorshipClick here to open the survey.
We will prayerfully consider the feedback we receive as we set the direction for our worship in the coming years.

THE SURVEY WILL CLOSE ON SUNDAY EVENING.  Speak now or forever hold your peace!

PS.  Thank you to the almost 100 people who have shared their views.


Helping build our Charity Partnerships
Over five years ago we chose to work in partnership with four charities helping Vulnerable Children.  Clare Mackay, David Perch and Karl Fenwick worked as our Charity Partnership Team to build our relationships with these charities and over the years we have supported them very generously.  We need to review the charities we support, keeping the focus on Vulnerable Children and making sure we have a balance of international, national, and local organisations.  After years of service, Clare, David, and Karl have all stepped down so we are looking for people to help develop our relationship with our charity partners.  This will include organising visiting speakers and promoting prayer and financial support for them.  If you are interested in helping with this, click here to email your details to Richard.  The first meeting of the new team will be at 7:30pm on Wednesday 14th September.
