COMING UP AND OTHER NOTICES

Electoral Roll This year, all parishes across the whole country are required by church rules to renew their Electoral Roll (rather than revise it). In practical terms this means that, as well as welcoming any additional new members, everyone who wants to stay on our Roll will need to re-apply. Application , and a copy is attached to this email. Completed forms should be handed direct to Caroline Barber, or put through her door. Deadline 10 March 2019. If you have any questions please email Caroline Barber cazbar2006@yahoo.co.uk

Summer Fete - 13 July 2019 We know it seems a long way off, but if you have any unwanted gifts from Christmas (or other occasions!) we would be most grateful if you could set these aside/bring to church by arrangement so that they could be used on the Tombola/Silent Auction/Gift stalls. Any queries please call Sue 01256 896402.



YOUNG CHURCH BUILDERS

What you’d probably know as Sunday School we call Young Church Builders. We meet most* Sunday mornings from 10am (i.e. before the service starts) in the Church Rooms attached to All Hallows. 

At YCB we take children from 3 to 11 years and aim to provide music, singing, Bible stories and fun activities appropriate to their age. 

If you would like to join us on a Sunday morning, please pop in and see what we get up to. We are always happy to have new children in YCB.

Over the summer holidays there is no YCB.  Please help yourself to an activity bag (located in the carpeted area near the font) which should keep younger children occupied should their attention wander! Children are also welcome to use the Church Room (under your supervision) during the service. Please speak to our sidespeople if you want to know where things are.

BABIES AND TODDLERS

Children are very welcome at our Service, whether they stay with you in the pew, stretch their legs in the carpeted area by the font or join YCB in the Church Rooms, where they may play with the toys (under the supervision of their carers) and are welcome to join in with YCB as and when they feel like it.

Toddlers are also welcome to play quietly (again under supervision) in the carpeted font area during the Service, but please note that their voices will carry during the quieter parts of the Service.

The activity bags (located in the carpeted area) should keep your children occupied if they aren’t in YCB.
