Notices for the week of 14 January 2018

 

 

 

100 Club

Bill Travers (7350 1745) is collecting subscriptions for this year’s 100 Club. The monthly draw offers smaller prizes, but much better odds, than the National Lottery, with profits going to the Church.

 

Membership for the year is £15 a number (£60 for five numbers) and prizes are £35 and £10 monthly, with a half-yearly jackpot of £100. The ‘year’ will run from 1 February 2018 to 31 January 2019. 

 

The Friday afternoon Study Group meets this Friday at 2.00 pm in the vicarage. If you are interested have a word with Fr Gordon.

 

Safeguarding is an important part of life nowadays and can be daunting until we know the basics. The Five Churches have organised a Safeguarding training on Saturday 24 February at St Barnabas Church Hall, from 10am-1pm. It is a foundation training for anyone working with young people or vulnerable adults and those who hold positions of trust – e.g. welcomers and servers – and PCC members. Please speak to Fr Gordon, Stephanie Schlingensiepen or Henrike Wilford by 16 February if you are interested.

 

The Christmas collections for BEST Wandsworth Prison Visitors and Small Steps for children with physical disabilities raised a total of £4803.14! Well done and thank you to all who contributed.
