Parish notices – 7 April 2012

Exploring Prayer

Exploring Prayer – The Prayer of Examen

Discovering the presence of God in our lives. This series was very well attended over Lent. Due to a clash of bookings the final session had to be postponed… But now, here it is!
The final session in this series takes place this Wednesday at 7.30 pm in the Church. Learn how by reviewing the day past we can learn much about ourselves and about how God is working in our lives.


Copies of Sunday morning sermons are available at the back of the church and on the website. Click on the Sermons link from the main menu on the left to see them.

Friendship Lunch

The Friendship Lunch for April will be this Tuesday, 2 April, from noon. All are welcome. If you need help with transport please contact Jane Watts, 478-6767.

Mission boxes

Please remember to bring your mission boxes in during April. If you can’t bring them in, please contact Claire Hunter, 478-8568.

First Aid courses

We setting up opportunities for first aid training for parish members. We want to make sure there are enough people trained to provide support when it is needed. It is also a requirement for any activities involving children and young people. If you are interested in taking part in the training, please contact David Earle (ph 478 0678).

We are also looking into a short CPR training course. More on this soon.

Furniture for Tonga

There will be another trip to Tonga to help at St Andrew’s school. One of the volunteer groups last year refurbished a house owned by the school. The house is being kept to accommodate volunteers who go to Tonga to work in, or at, the school, but at the moment it is bare. We are looking for some furniture to put in it: lounge suite; 2 easy chairs; queen-size bed and mattress; small kitchen table and maybe two chairs; freestanding wardrobes and chests of drawers; coffee table; saucepans (decent ones are very hard to come by in Tonga. We would also be grateful for anything else you care to donate. We have a container going to Tonga, which we will be filling from the middle of April to the end of April. We can store offerings in the meantime. You can contact Maurice Dagger or 478-3620. We can pick up.
