Help needed for Sunday School

We are currently looking for extra help in our Sunday School groups.

We have a dedicated group of people that that do a great job of looking after our young people.

However we still have gaps in our rota to help with safeguarding our group leaders, helpers and our young people.

We are not looking for leaders unless you feel that this is something you feel called to do. We just need extra people to ensure we have the full quota of helpers.

We have 3 different groups covering Primary age children to Teens so have different opportunities should you feel called to specific ages.

There will be a Sunday school meeting on Wednesday 15th November at 7.30 in the Oasis.

If you are interested in helping with or leading the children’s groups then please come along to find out more or get in touch with Dot.


Lent groups

Our Lent groups are a time to learn, reflect and pray together.  This year, they are also an opportunity to help create our “Stations of the Cross” which we are working on as a joint project with Saint Paul’s School. (What are “Stations of the Cross”? – external link to Wikipedia).

If you’ve not signed up to a group yet, don’t worry – you can join any of the groups at any time, even if you’ve missed some weeks (the sessions stand alone).

Monday – 7:30pm at 47 Halesworth Road
Wednesday – 9:30am in the chapel
Wednesday – 7:30pm at the Vicarage
Friday 7:30pm at 11 Talaton Close

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.
