St John's News - 7 March

Dear friends,

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5

If you missed Sunday's all age service with the baptism of Brogan Edwards, you can catch up on our YouTube channel. This coming Sunday’s service includes the Lord's Supper and the reading is John 18:38-19:16.

Mike Schofield is walking up Snowdon on 17th March to raise funds for the Elmswell Food Bank. If you are able to support him in this, his Just Giving page can be found on the following link Alternatively any donations for him can be accepted at church.

Time spent chatting and encouraging each other over tea and coffee after a service is greatly valued. We are very grateful for those who prepare the tea, coffee and goodies in the kitchen on Sundays. We could do with some more volunteers (many hands make light work). If you are willing to go on the rota, please contact Rosie Ellis - 01359 242629.
