Pancake Party – save the date (21st Feb)
We want your used ink cartridges!
Friends of St Helen’s AGM
Join us in St Helen’s Church for our All Age CommunionService at 10am. If you can’t join us in church, please join us online. Click here or on the image above for the YouTube link or click here to view from our website.
Join us at our first Kids Worship Service of the year! 3.30pm in St Helen’s Church. Fun, informal worship with songs, stories and craft. Especially suitable for primary age children and smaller siblings, but all are welcome. Before the service we have refreshments and craft activities in the Chancel.
With the other churches in the village, we are organising a pancake party for all-ages on Shrove Tuesday (21st February) from 5pm at the Chapel Halls. Like the Summer BBQ, this is a great way to express the unity in our church family and mix with members of different congregations and all ages. Put the date in your diary and let us know if you’d like to help.
Your ink cartridges have already raised more than £50 for our church!
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
