Faith in our Fathers 

Fathers’ Day is on 17th June and this is a great opportunity to reflect on how we can celebrate fathers.  Dads, stepdads, two dads, absent dads…fatherhood and what it means is changing.  We’re going to explore what ‘fatherhood’ can be in today’s society, gain some ideas to inspire, and find ways to encourage grandads, dads, stepdads and all dads to do a great job. 

There is no charge for this breakfast, but there will be a retiring offering for the ministry of Betel. To book, please contact Jacky Bates - email:    This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK - With the approach of lighter evenings, it can only mean that Christian Aid Week is on the horizon. This year it's Sunday 13th May until Saturday 19th May, and as usual we are desperate for house-to-house collectors.  Between us, we usually manage to collect an amazing £5000, reduced last year owing to lack of collectors.   We collect from many people who would not send in a donation, but are willing to put a gift into the envelope on the doorstep.  Please consider whether you can help this year, now matter how few houses you can cover - an hour or two of your time can make a huge difference to those in great need.  More info. from, and offers of help to, Yvonne Ellison, This email address is being protected from spambots.

BLACK MATTING NEAR FONT - The need for it isn't as great as it was and it is getting very dirty and looks untidy and not very friendly. Dave's son is having some of it for his garage floor so if others can use it we'd be glad to get rid of it. Otherwise it will be disposed of. If the need arises we'll replace it with something more child friendly colourwise. Sue Megahy
