Bishop's Lent Appeal.
From the Bishop's letter :- "This year's Lent Appeal is called 'From Slavery to Freedom'. Our Christian faith celebrates the dignity of every human person; made in the image of God our creator, and constantly challenges lack of respect and honour wherever it occurs. Alongside the focus on international trafficking, we will also support local charities that are preventing and responding to the mistreatment of women and girls." Baskets are available at the back of the churches if you wish to donate, also envelopes if you would like us to reclaim the tax through the Gift Aid scheme.

Electoral Roll
If you would like to be on the Electoral Roll for either church, application forms can be found at the back of each church. The rolls will be closed for 14 days before the APCMs for revision. [Not a general revision this year] They will re-open after the APCMs.
St Peter's APCM was on Sunday 2nd April at 11.30am.
St Helen's APCM is on Sunday 30th April at 11.30am.

Bible Study / House Group
The weekly bible study / house group which has been meeting at Sylvia's has now finished the Lent course and will take a break until Monday 24th April when the schools return.
