PICNIC TEA Saturday 29th June at 3.00pm

We are hosting a Picnic Tea for children and their families who have been baptised in our Parish over the last two and a half years, together with any other young families who have links with us.

We will be appealing for help with catering etc. nearer the time and when we know approximate numbers.

In the meantime, if anyone has any large garden toys i.e. Jenga, Connect Four etc. and are prepared to loan them for the day, please let John, Elaine or Dee know. Many thanks.


Pentecost-the birthday of the Church, which exploded into life 2,000 years ago, as the Disciples received the gift of the Holy Spirit. Is there a need for His explosive power today…in our midst? I believe the answer is a resounding “YES!” So, if you’d like to deepen your knowledge, we have a selection of books on the bookstand, explaining and describing the often astounding ministry of the Holy Spirit on today’s Church.

So, don’t forget to have a good browse-Happy reading.       John.
