Pancake Party
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.

Saturday 11 February 2023 at 3 pm in St Helen’s School
Speaker: the well known and entertaining Stephen De Silva, St Albans Cathedral Guide, on Abbot John of Wheathampstead and other local saints. There will be a sales table including local honey and a raffle. Do come!

The Friends would love to have more trustees, including a Treasurer.  Please speak to Ruth if you would like to join us 01582 712330 after 31st January.
