Join us THIS SUNDAY at our 10am Pentecost Service (Sunday 28th May) and stay for brunch as we celebrate the birthday of the church. We’re offering sausage baps, pastries, muffins and fruit with the usual tea and coffee after the service. Everyone is invited!
If you can help cook or serve, please email Richard.
This year Christian Aid Week focuses on Malawi, where Christian Aid is helping communities to grow pigeon peas for food and for income.  Pigeon peas are a hardy, drought-resistant crop, coping with climate change.  Please support this and other worthwhile projects by donating on-line here or by picking up a traditional envelope from the back of the church and returning it to St Helen’s.  For enquiries please contact Simon Best by email or on 07786 704353.

Thy Kingdom Come is all about praying for people to come to know the amazing, life-transforming love of Jesus. We are encouraging everyone to choose 5 people they know, and to pray for them. 

Why not watch this video from The Rt Revd Dr John Sentamu as he encourages us to pray for 5.
