LITTLE SPROUTS

We continue to meet in church Mondays during term time only. Our last session before Christmas will be on Monday 12th December and then we will be back on Monday 9th January. Don’t forget to join us for our various family friendly services over the Christmas period and we look forward to welcoming you all back in the New Year.

HELP! Please would you consider helping on the Sunday tea and coffee rota? You can do it with a friend/wife/husband. You only have to buy milk. You do not have to wash up. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. It involves arriving a little earlier on a Sunday, setting out the trays with mugs and biscuits and filling the urn. After the service you would make up to 35 cups of very welcome tea and coffee. This is a real service to our church family, a lovely welcome to newcomers. We need someone to do the first and the Fourth Sunday of the month. Speak to Marion Hyde on 01327 857947.

VOLUNTEERS required to help with Prayer Space which we are running for both our church schools. In Greens Norton from afternoon of Monday 19th June to Wednesday 21st (excluding Tots Own time) and in Towcester from Tuesday 27th June to lunchtime on Thursday 29th. It is very similar to Experience Easter, you will be looking after a station and guiding small groups of children through the activity. If you are able to offer a few hours or all morning / afternoon your help would be very much appreciated. Please sign up at the back of church.



HOLY LAND VISIT
Some parts of Palestine/ Israel have changed beyond recognition, some parts and views are very similar to what Jesus would have seen. Just as in Jesus’ day there are people who struggle against huge oppression and some who live generously and risk ostracism to show compassion. There is much to see, much to enter into and much to support and pray for. We are planning a Pilgrimage from our Benefice in November 2018. This gives time for preparation, saving up and looking forward to it. If you are at all interested, please look at the brochure either on the Benefice website or pick up a copy from church . Do talk to one of the clergy. It is not cheap, but will support local Christian guides, bus drivers, hotels and help Benefice Events 5 keep Christians in the land telling the story and being salt and light in it and drawing out God’s love in all people there. We hope to provide a few subsidized places as part of this so please don’t let the significant price put you off exploring this at this early stage do please talk to one of the clergy if you are interested.

TOWCESTER FOOD BANK is very low on all items EXCEPT pasta & baked beans! We are also pleased to receive toiletries and household items. We hope to be able to give out Easter eggs as well over the Easter period. Any donations would be very gratefully received. Many thanks.
