PRAYER SPACE AT ST EBBE'S SCHOOL- 7TH TO 10TH MAY

We are looking for helpers to help Naomi run the prayer spaces (BeSpace) at St Ebbes primary school.  We’re looking for the following slots to be filled, especially the afternoon slots!

Morning slot: 9:50-10:50

Late morning slot: 10:50-12:10

Afternoon slot: 1:20-2:40

Contact Naomi via the church office – it would be an answer to prayer!

FOR PRAYERFUL CONSIDERATION!

As you know, we have wonderful groups of children and young people meeting most Sunday mornings, thanks to a faithful group of Leaders and Helpers.  These groups enable the participants to connect with each other and with God. 

Creche - pre schoolers and meets once per month in the gallery 

Lighthouse - primary school age and meets (almost) weekly either for free play or for more structured sessions.   

Ignite -young people, and meets weekly.  There are also Ignite socials once per month.  

Sometimes we don't have enough helpers or enough leaders to be able to run on a weekly basis or offer the learning activities we would like.    We’re looking for people who might help regularly, and we’re  also creating a ‘pool’ of people we can ask to help intermittently. 

Please could you give this your consideration and if getting involved is something that you might be interested in - no matter how intermittently - please could you let Jo or Naomi know?   Many thanks! 

(DBS checks and Safeguarding Training can be arranged)

ENGLISH CHAT GROUP

Please pray for this group in welcoming new mums and giving them confidence in spoken English. if you are interested in helping, please contact Joy via the church office.

YOUTHSPACE - HELP NEEDED

Naomi's teenage group at St Luke's needs some new volunteers. It's a couple of hours on a  Thursday early evening. If you can give an evening a month or every six weeks, please contact Naomi via the church office.

DROP IN LUNCH - SOUP MAKERS

Could you be a souper-star? We need  one or two more people who are willing to make soup for the drop-in. We can take it in bulk and freeze in our souped-up freezer so if you have an hour to give once a month to making some soup, that would be super. You do not need to have any hygiene qualifications or to have your kitchen inspected. Please contact Jenni via the church office.
