Termly House Communion: Once a term on a Saturday we hold a Home Communion service for those of our members who cannot get out easily. We provide lifts to and from the venue, assistance in the service and a delicious lunch. It’s a great event and very important to those who attend. We’re currently looking for a little more help with lifts to and from the venue. We’re also looking for an additional in which to hold these occasional events, which needs to be accessible and could accommodate up to a dozen people both for the service and lunch. Please contact Sarah Macnab or Sarah Bryant if you can help ([email protected], [email protected])


A Parishioner is looking to rent a spare room in a flat or house in St Mary’s parish from early June onwards and is wondering if anyone knows someone who could offer her one? She will not be there all the time and manage a simple and quiet life at home. She like to use broadband internet, share a kitchen and store her bicycle safely indoors. Rent and bills paid monthly or weekly. She is female, worker, non-smoker, and regular worshipper at church. More details via Sunny in the Parish Office.


Godly Play: Our Junior Church Leaders are having an Introductory Day & Extended Skills Workshop for this new approach to Christian education with children. It’s on Saturday 17th June. There are still a few (free) places if anyone would like to join us. Please have a word with Simon in the first instance. It promises to be very rewarding.


John Hughes: John is undergoing an intensive course of radiotherapy at the moment. Please remember him and Sue in your prayers. He is very seriously ill.
