I am popping into the office weekly for the month of January and will check my email intermittently, however for any urgent response please email the general office email or call the office on 020 8651 4308. Thank you Caroline Hubbard
ADVENTURE TOTS: We reopened the Wednesday Toddler session on Wednesday 9th January. We would really like to have more volunteers to join our team. If you are able to help put out toys, sit and chat, sit at the welcome table, watch over the activity table, help with preparing drinks and snacks, or help with singing and story time we would love to hear from you. Please pray for us, and for all the toddlers and the grown-ups we are reaching out to. Marilyn and Libby
SHELTER: The Shelter Rota is almost complete but we are in need of two people to put away tables & chairs, strip beds and put the mattresses back into the loft on Friday mornings from 7:00 till 8:00. Please let us know if you can help with these jobs. Thank you. John & Pat Hasell.
CHURCH ADMINISTRATION: At our November Church Members’ Meeting we began a conversation about the possibility of a new role of ‘Church Manager,’ focussed on the areas of doing administration, welcome and communications. Over the next few weeks, the deacons hope to further develop these ideas before bringing a formal proposal to the January Members’ Meeting. If you have any feedback or ideas to contribute to this conversation, please speak with Trevor or Theresa. We would also like to train others in the updating and printing of the weekly notice sheet. Caroline is here to help, please let her know if you would like to learn!
DIY odd jobs: occasionally some of our older folk need help with relatively simple DIY tasks,that a tradesman wouldn’t want to come out for. If you may be able to help, please let Ruth Manson know and she will call on you as and when needed! Likewise there are some folk who need lifts to Church activities occasionally or to Sunday services. Please let Ruth know if you would be willing to help in this way too.
INSIGHT: If you would like to contribute an article, book review, thoughts or something of interest to Insight at any time please email to email@example.com or leave in the church office and let me know..Articles will be included subject to space in each publication..Thank you. Eleanor.
COMMUNION BREAD: please be reminded bread served is always gluten free.
