Paul's reflection on Easter
Paul's reflection on Easter
As you may know, we have spent more than we would have liked to recently because of defects in the building. First was the soggy Coffee Lounge floor which, after a couple of expensive false starts, we now seem to have a solution which is working.
We are now in the middle of trying to fix leaks in the 1930's plumbing in the hall where a few exploratory holes have been drilled. Our main problem here is we don't know where the pipes run but we are in the process of trying to map out the circuit.
All this costs money which is why we have joined the "easyfundraising" scheme where, by shopping online via one of over 3,500 retailers, those retailers will donate a percentage of the sale to our fund at no cost to the shopper or to ourselves.
You are invited to a Greek Themed Lunch on Sunday 19th May 2019 at 12.30pm. There is no charge for the meal but we would be grateful for donations in aid of the Coffee Lounge floor.
The sign-up sheet is on the noticeboard opposite the Christian Care Office, please put your name down by 12th May so I know how many to cater for. As an added bonus there will be a showing of the film Mamma Mia (the first one) in the church after lunch. Please come along to both the lunch and the film show for a fun afternoon.
Merton Citizens is an alliance of 17 faith, education and community institutions working together for the common good. Over the past year members have spoken to over 9,000 local people to identify the issues that we care about and deternmine what needs to change. Please download a copy of their and their .
We are looking within our church for a Mental Health Champion for which training will be given. Could that be you? If you want to know more then please .
