St Helen's & St. Peter's Choir
We are looking for a new choir director. If you know of any one that might be interested in taking this on, please let Rob or John know. We would also welcome new members to the choir, especially altos, tenors and basses. It would be helpful if you could read music but not essential.
The weekly Bible Studies continue on Tuesday mornings and are currently using Table Talk, enabling us to discuss freely issues of faith, life and morality. Each session stands alone so please feel free to give us a try. No meeting on 7th July.
Summer and the Church Fete are approaching........fast. The Mothers' Union would welcome items for their tombola stall. A box will be inside the porch at St. Peter's or let Dee, Molly, or Sylvia have your contribution. With grateful thanks.
Our thanks go to Luke Hayden for a wonderful organ recital in St. Helen's Church on Saturday 20th June. Thank you also to those who prepared the refreshments afterwards. It was a lovely evening, enjoyed by all who came. The total now raised with extra donations after the event is £363.00, for Church funds.
