Bantock park picnic

On Sunday 23rd June we are organising a church picnic to Bantock Park, meeting at 2pm.

All are welcome, just bring along food to share and a rug to sit on!

For more information see Dot Clayton.



“Hot Potato” Lent lunch

There will be a simple baked potato lunch to raise money for the Bishop’s Lent appeal after church next Sunday (3rd March).  During our lunch, Jim will be discussing a ‘hot potato’ issue!  If you haven’t already signed up, please contact Jim to let him know you’d like to attend (we need to know numbers, so we can cater for everyone).


Quinta 2013

Our church holds a weekend away every two years, in the beautiful grounds of The Quinta, a Christian centre in Shropshire (about an hour away).  This year’s weekend away will be 19th-21st April.  The title of the weekend is “Living Grace – Receiving and giving”.  Our guest speaker is Reverend Simon Thorburn, who was vicar at Saint Paul’s in the late 1980s.

The cost of the weekend has been cut this year!  Booking forms are now available in church.

Speak to Greta or Marion for more information.

It is our intention that no-one should feel prevented from attending on cost grounds.  If you would like to attend, but feel cost would be an issue, please don’t hesitate to speak to Greta, Marion or Jim.


Christmas Carol Service

A quick reminder that our annual Christmas Carol Service is tomorrow evening (Sunday 16th December) at 6:30pm.

There will be popular carols and readings, followed by mulled wine and mince pies.


Winter Wonderland

There will be a community Christmas fair with carol singing, Santa, bouncy castle, roast chestnuts, stalls and more, Friday 7th December, 3-6pm on Pendeford Square and in the Oasis.

Could you help organise/run a Saint Paul’s Chruch stall at the Winter Wonderland?  Let Jim know if you are able to help.
