News and Notices
NEW: Thursday Afternoon Service with Tea
We appreciate that there are some members of our congregation who find it difficult
to get to church for a morning service so on the first Thursday in April and May
we will be having an afternoon Eucharist service at 2.30pm followed by afternoon
tea and a chance to socialise. If you can help by offering a lift to those who find
it difficult to get to church or by helping with refreshments please speak to Daphne
or Pip. Fr David is away in June but, if this is popular, it will resume in July.
In order to keep those who are interested in touch we have set up a emailing list
so that we can remind people of events and let them know if there is anything special
going on. We did not take email addresses from members of the congregation on the
day, but it will be helpful if you could complete the list at the back of the church,
or email us if you would like to be included on this list.
How does it work?
For every book you bring along you can take a book away to read. If you don’t have
a book to bring along you can still borrow one to get you started in return for a
small donation. We will also have refreshments - tea, coffee etc - so you can sit
and have a chat with old or new friends. There will be a children’s area with toys
to keep them amused so you can relax.
Sunday Bookswap and Table Top Sale
The Ultimate Recycling Experience
For many years we have had regular bring and buy sales in aid of local charities
offering pre-loved items at reasonable prices. Starting in October 2017, this will
be on the 4th Sunday of every month and will be combined with a new, extra Sunday
opening time for Bookswap so that those of you who can’t come on a Thursday afternoon
can still take part. Light refreshments will be available.
Sunday 24th March
Times: Between 10.30am and 12.30pm
Place: In the church hall (behind the church)
Our current charity is The Red Box Project.
St Matthew's is honoured to be hosting a Confirmation Service on 12th May.
If you (or someone you know) would like to be confirmed please contact Fr David for
further information and details of classes.
This year between 26th February and 8th April there will be a complete revision of
the Church Electoral Roll. This means that even if you are currently on the roll
you need to fill in a new form which you can get at the back of church or from Pip.
Being on the roll allows you to have a say in the running of the church by voting
at the Annual Parish Meeting which is on Sunday, April 28th and shows your commitment
to St. Matthews. There is a box for completed forms on the table at the back of church.
Please ask me if you have any questions. Pip
