Quiz Night

St Helen's Church are hosting a Quiz Night in the Community Centre on Friday 10th November at 7.00pm. As well as being a fun event, this will help raise funds for the church’s 'Kids' Shed Appeal' - the conversion of the old church office into a hub for children to use when doing projects in the churchyard. Teams of max 6 people are invited, and each team is asked to contribute £15 as an entry fee. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available, and teams are welcome to bring their own wine and nibbles if they wish. There will be a raffle (donations of prizes welcome) and prizes for the winning team. Please contact Andrew Bradstock at andrewbradstock(at)gmail(dot)com
or tel: 07503 200630 if you would like to enter a team or are an individual or smaller group who would like to join with others.

St John’s Church Votive Stand

We would greatly appreciate any help in sourcing a votive stand. This could either be a spare one from an existing church or any donations towards purchasing a new one.

Supporting our local Food Banks - Help prepare for Winter

Now is the time to build up reserves in the Island Foodbanks

St Mary’s Church continues as a collection point for tinned foods, toiletries and other essentials for those in need of aid in these difficult times. Please place your donations at the back of the church.

St Peter's Church: Food bank baskets for non-perishable food are also situated at the back of the church, The Orange Tree in Madeira Road and Penforma on the corner of Bluett Avenue and Salterns, all in Seaview.
