Notices – w/c 13th March 2016

PRAYER MEETING – Next Week

We will meet in the Vestibule from 12.30pm to 1.00pm. Prayer is simply having a conversation with God and silence is okay. Please join us.

 

Pub Lunch – Coach & Horses, Ickenham

Tomorrow, meet at the church at 12.15pm.

 

Church Seating

Following the decision of the last members meeting to replace the old chairs and reduce the number of chairs in the church, some of the chairs have been removed. This is to make space for the forthcoming exhibition in the church.  If you know anyone or anywhere that would like some of the old chairs please contact Martin in the church office.

 

Good Grief

Until 27th March there will be an exhibition of sculptures in Christ Church on the theme of grief. See posters for details of events and times.

It is not too late to volunteer to help with stewarding the exhibition. If you would like to help, please speak to Reverend Nick Skelding.
