It was announced yesterday in church, and I'm pleased to announce it here. We're getting another curate. Brenda Forrester will be joining us in July, she brings some wonderful skills and qualities to add to our team.
Following the completion of stage one of our church building development project. We're now exploring stage two. This would be an extension to the North Side of the church facing Glebe Crescent. This would give us a proper kitchen, more toilets, and a good sized room for church and community use.
We're having a meeting at 7pm on 12th September at church for people to ask questions and share their views. This is obviously very early in the project, so it would be great to have any involvement.
Saturday connect this week is on Jesus's parable about building on sand. Lots of fun for all the family with crafts, songs and different ways to pray. Saturday at 5pm in church.
We have a bereavement coffee morning on Friday at 10:00, in church. It's a chance to talk with people from church and others who have experienced loss whether recently or longer ago. Everyone is welcome.
This Sunday at 6pm we have our memorial service. Every three months we have a special service where we remember those we have loved and lost. There's hymns, prayers, and a chance to light a candle in memory of those you love but see no more. Whether your loss is recent or longer ago all are welcome.
This weeks Saturday connect is on the theme of the feeding of the five thousand. If the weather is kind to us we'll be out in the grounds. Bring a picnic and a blanket, lots of fun for all the family this Saturday from 5.
The Washington Food Bank could really do with donations. We have a box at the back of church where you can always leave donations, or you can contact them to arrange direct delivery.
We've got office hour as usual today from 6-7pm. It's a chance to make enquiries about baptisms or weddings, or anything else about the church. Though there won't be office hour next week due to Holy Week services. We will post a list of these later.
