Thought for the Week
A New Triennium

Just as a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, with a completely different shape, parts, mode of travel, food, colours & patterns, so we pray to be transformed into all God wants us to be, as we experience his work in our lives.

Friends of St Helen's
This is now up and running. A bank account is now open and donations to this fund are very welcome. All money received will be put to the fabric and restoration of St Helen’s Church.

Fabric & Restoration at St Helen’s Church
There are still urgent repairs to be done following on from the recent quinquennial review, and after the recent refurbishment there is very little money left in reserve. Any donations would be gratefully received. It may seem that we are always asking for money, unfortunately that is right, but we need to preserve this wonderful building for ourselves and for future generations.


St Peter’s
The monthly readers rota is to be reinstated. If you would like to read, or to do the intercessions please let Sylvia know.

Seaview Food Bank
Non-perishable foods may be left at The Orange Tree, Madeira Road, or Penmorfa, on the corner of Bluett Avenue and Saltems. There is also a basket at the back of St Peter’s Church. If you are able please give generously during this Christmas season remembering those who may go hungry and cold.

To John Cheverton who, on Boxing Day [26th December] celebrated being a chorister for 80 years in St Peter’s Church choir. A wonderful achievement.
