Donkey Needed!
Following the success of our Live Nativity at Christmas, we would love to have a real donkey for Palm Sunday on April 10th.
If you know of someone who has a donkey (not a horse) and would be willing to bring it to St Helen’s for a couple of hours on the Sunday morning, please let Richard or Linda know.  We will happily cover transport costs.



Harpenden Child Contact Centre
Are you interested in helping children from separated families keep in touch with both parents? Harpenden Child Contact Centre, based in All Saints Church hall, Harpenden (on the 2nd and 4th Saturday afternoon of each month),  provides a safe place for children to meet their non-resident parent. HCCC  Trustees are looking for a new Co-ordinator to provide good leadership to our teams of volunteers and an effective service for families. This is an immensely rewarding role; the Co-ordinator will work from home but on occasions will also attend Contact sessions.  If you are interested, please contact our Coordinator Ken Brennan on 07913 761167
