Our former Curate, Rev Kate Daymond will be licensed as Associate Vicar at St Peter’s Church in Petersham on Wednesday 2nd February.  There are a few spaces left, so if you are interested in going contact Kate direct.  If you’d like to send her a card – deliver it to The Rectory and we will take them on Wednesday. Please pray for Kate as she begins this new phase of her ministry.
The Ark Baby and Toddler group has restarted at St Helen’s church on a Wednesday morning from 9.30-11.00am. Join us for play, refreshments and singing. All welcome. Do spread the word to neighbours with little ones.



Come to a different type of Christingle. We won’t be using oranges or sweets, but you will have the chance to make a more nature friendly and lasting memento to represent Jesus, the Light of the World.  This is suitable for all ages, not just for children!
To help us with planning, please book free places by clicking here or on the image.
Dress for the weather as we will be outside!


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.

The Friends of St Helen’s Church needs a Treasurer and Secretary. A fun committee – light duties!

FOR SALE: These lovely cards (with envelopes) are blank inside for your message. £2.50 for a pack of 5. Available from Ruth Coles 712330
