Sunday 16 April 2017 - Easter

PCC & Deanery Synod
If you are considering joining the PCC or Deanery Synod there is still time to put yourself forward. Please speak to Simon Taylor or Catherine McBride in the first instance or call the office to get a form.


4-11s Children’s Leader update…
The time is drawing close for Amy Johnston to leave us as the 4-11s Leader and we are yet to fill this full time post! We have interviewed one candidate and decided not to take them further. So we are still looking for someone to come and lead this great ministry. If you or someone you know is interested why not come and chat to James Ellin or pop him an email.

Leaving do for Amy & Michael Johnston - Sunday 23rd April
We would like as many of you as possible to come to say farewell to both Amy and Michael at morning and evening services on 23rd April (yes, APCM day). After the 10.30am Busbridge service there will be self-service tea and coffee available from the marquee by the centre. There are also rumours of doughnuts. Don’t miss the chance to say your goodbyes to these lovely people. If you still want to contribute to their farewell gift, you can make a payment online marked ‘Johnston farewell’ to sort code 60-09-04, account no. 00705349.

Thank you!
The Taylor family would like to thank everyone who has offered prayer, support and encouragement over the past few days as they have moved house. The next phase of the Old Rectory project is now about to start.

Trekkers Update
Our children’s group in the Busbridge Classic, Trekkers, has a schedule change. After Easter it will be going to twice monthly, on the second and fourth Sundays, with 9th July as the final date before the summer break.

Feba Prayer Meeting on Monday 8th May, 10.30am to 11.30am at 42 Minster Road. Please take this opportunity to pray for a media organisation with partners and projects in most of the world's trouble spots. Contact Shelagh Godwin for more details.
