THIS WEEK’S NOTICES
RETIRING COLLECTION East African Famine Appeal: There will be second, retiring, collection during our service today to go to the Disaster Emergency Committee East African Famine Appeal. Every pound you donate through St Mary’s will be matched by the Church Council. Please support this urgent appeal.
St Mary’s Annual Report: Please take your copy of the Annual Report from the back of church today. If you’re not on the Church Electoral Roll, please take one of the spare copies. Please also note: today is the last day you can sign up to go on the 2017 Electoral Roll if you’re not currently on it.
St Mary’s Annual Church Meeting: This will be on Tuesday 25th April at 7.30pm, preceded by drinks and nibbles from 7pm. Please think about serving your Church or the wider Church of England locally: we shall be electing a People’s Church Warden, four members to serve on Battersea Deanery Synod and four members of the Parochial Church Council. Nomination sheets are on the board at the back of church. There will be a presentation about our forthcoming Parish Mission in 2018.
Home Groups: These return to their normal pattern after Lent. If you’ve joined a group for Lent and would like to continue, or you’d be interested in joining a group, please speak to Colin Wimsett ([email protected]).
Wandsworth Churches Night Shelter: After its successful first year, the churches involved in this new project are gathering to worship and think about next steps on Sunday 30th April at 6pm at St Mark’s, Battersea Rise. There will be no evening service here that evening. St Mary’s may have the chance to participate in this event next year, possibly in conjunction with Sacred Heart Church and the Katherine Low Settlement. Why not join us that evening at St Mark’s to find out more.
