    Outreach Trip to The Philippines April 2015

    You have may read about this in the News Sheet over the past few months.  If you would like to know more about what we are doing and why, please click here.

    UPDATE - 'The Philippine team is so excited to be leaving for their parish mission outreach in 2 1/2 weeks! Over £2000 has been raised so far in support of the outreach. Support raising continues in a variety of ways though because there's still a ways to go to be ready. 

     

    There will be 3 musical Living Room Gigs taking place in different places, the next one is this Friday March 27th at June Snow's home. Team member Lottie Sprague is also 'sleeping out' on the Kings Road in London this weekend to understand what it feels like to be homeless. 

    If anyone feels as if they've missed the boat in supporting us, it's not too late! Just go to our online Just Giving page to make a donation. https://mydonate.bt.com/events/keynshamphilippines/204410

    Or drop something in to the office care of Rev. Denise Calverley.

     

    Do pick up our new team newsletter available from next week if you wish to be part of our daily prayer team cover while we're away.'

     

    Blessings,

    First Sunday of the month 10.30am St John’s services
    These services are planned by a group that meets monthly a few weeks beforehand.  If you are usually a member of the 11.15am congregation, and would like to help with the planning of these services it would be a great help.  Please speak to one of the clergy or Roger Peach.


    General Information 
    Vestry Hour : if you are thinking of marrying at St John's then please come along to our Vestry Hour on Saturday mornings at 9.30 in the Parish Office - you can talk to a member of the clergy and book a date!  **Please note that changes to The Immigration Act of 2014 have resulted in changes to Marriage Law  We are now required by law to ask to see a copy of your passports before taking a booking for a wedding. 

    It is therefore vital that if you want to book and secure a date for your Wedding during Vestry Hour, that you bring your passports with you.**
