Volunteers needed for Messy Church! If you can help on Sunday 26th March, please contact Linda at or 07857 645 175

We have a fantastic volunteer opportunity to come to our offices at 3a and help us tidy and organise.  It will be physical as there is lots of lifting and carrying.  If you can spare a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 8 you are our people! Lunch will be provided and tea, coffee and squash a plenty! Days would be 21/22 March and the more people the merrier, grab a group of friends if you can.  Let me know if this sounds like you, phone Sam on 07883814458 today!

It has been about four years since we had regular youthwork in the parish and we are determined to relaunch our work with older children and young people as soon as possible.  Working with young people is a critical part of our vision to be a church for all generations, so please pray for a successful relaunch of work with young people in the parish in the very near future. If you would like to know more, Rt Rev Jane Mainwaring, the new Bishop of Hertford is hosting an evening reception from 7:30pm on Monday 27th March at the Luton head office of national charity Youthscape.   No need to RSVP, just come along if you can, alternatively speak to Richard or Claire to find out more.

If you have ink cartridges lying around at home and would like a quick and easy way to recycle them, bring them to St Helen’s Church!

Do your bit to save the planet  – just pop them into the box in the Chancel.

*Please note: we can only recycle ink cartridges, not laser or toner cartridges
