FLOWER ROTA: we are very grateful for the generous donations towards flowers through the year. There are some spaces in June and later months through 2017, so if you would like to donate financially towards the flowers please add your name to one of the gaps on the calendar, on the notice board or speak to Joy Harris. The flower team are happy to arrange the display for you, or you are welcome to do the arrangement if you wish.
COUNSELLING SERVICE: here, at Selsdon Baptist Church, we offer a confidential counselling service in a safe and relaxed environment.For more information: call Jane on 07561 869620
DISH WASHER: After using please place trays back into machine as this leaves work tops clear for preparation and washing up. Thank you Sheila.
PLEASE DO NOT FORGET: to save any postage stamps (UK or overseas). They can all be used to raise funds for Baptist Home Mission and enable small churches in the U.K.to continue to remain open in needy areas. Sometimes churches are unable to afford maintenance on their buildings or to organise outreach projects in the local area to serve their local community. Last year over £6000 was raised from stamps etc. Please put your stamps into the red box on the Mission table in the foyer or hand them directly to me. Thank you so much. Kay Holman.
