Last Lent Lunch…
… this Tuesday at 1200. Bible Study at 1115 for those who would like to come to that. Many thanks to Dawn, Lorraine and other volunteers for organising these lunches, making soup and serving. We’ll announce the total raised for the St Anne’s Centre soon.

Hope for Ukraine
The film night, Tom Cotcher’s event and last Sunday’s collection raised a splendid £1,765.55 for the DEC Ukraine Appeal. Many thanks to all who took part and/or supported these events. Donations can be made directly to the DEC online. Tom sends his ‘heartfelt thanks to the congregation for their generosity of spirit as well as their donations.’

Church cleaning for Easter
Volunteers are requested to prepare the church for Easter. Come along on Wednesday 13th April at 1000. Bring your own Marigolds!

Annual Vestry & Parochial Church Meetings
This year’s APCM (rather like an AGM) will be on Sunday 1st May after the 1000 Parish Eucharist. We will elect Churchwardens to serve for the coming year and members of the Parochial Church Council (where there are vacancies – posts are usually held for three years). Annual reports and accounts will be available a couple of weeks in advance of the meeting.

Three funerals
Marjorie Trowell RIP – Wednesday 20th April at 1100
Margaret Yellop RIP – Monday 25th April at 1200
Betty Maccario RIP – Monday 9th May at 1430
