Old Rectory update
Second fix in all areas of Old Rectory including windows fitted, carpets laid and groundworks continue. Mark Pateman

We are delighted that the Diocesan buildings committee has accepted our proposal for reordering Busbridge Church by opening much of the church up for flexible use (keeping the Lutyens walls in place). The matter is now being considered by the Chancellor in London.

Update on Contemporary in the School
Our thanks go to Busbridge Junior School for our use of the site for the Contemporary each Sunday. Fruitful conversations are being had regarding on-site storage, display boards, and banners. Watch this space…

Helpful Habits - A 6-week course of prayer

Gertrud Sollars is offering to run another round of this prayer workshop during the next term. It will take place on 6 consecutive Tuesdays, 17th April to 22nd May., from 11.00am-12.00pm, venue tba. If you are interested in joining, please contact Gertrud.

Thanks to Keith Harper, Ben Rogers and Matt Toombs for their amazing acts of service at Busbridge last week. Ben set off at 6.00am to walk to church to help Keith clear the paths of snow. Matt walked from Elstead to ensure he arrived in time to lead the children’s ministry! What dedication.

Women’s ministry
Thanks to the hard work of Nicky Hemery and others, there’s an absolutely fabulous programme of events happening for women - look out for the new programme coming next week. The first event is happening on Tuesday 27th March and is a film evening, seeing ‘Hidden Figures’. As it’s hosted at a private address there are limited numbers - please show your support for this fabulous ministry. Invite a friend and book your space NOW by emailing Pri Burford.

Easter Garden Service - 31st March, 3.00pm
The egg hunt tea is in Simon & Catherine’s garden this year following the service in the church. Catherine needs helpers and cake donations - do speak to Catherine Taylor if you can help (and thanks to the Taylors for kindly hosting!)

On Thursday 5th April, we’re delighted that Jenny Walker, an advanced Clinical and Restorative Massage Therapist with Cornerstone Therapies, will come and tell us how she uses different therapies to restore wellbeing.  Jenny is recognised as one of the UK's foremost restorative therapy practitioners.  So, if you need to unwind from any stresses or aches and pains or would simply like to experience some peace and tranquillity, take this opportunity to hear about hot stones, aromatherapy and other therapies provided at the Cornerstone Therapies studio in Godalming!  We meet in Busbridge Church Centre at 8.00pm and there’ll be drinks and nibbles before Jenny starts her talk.  We very much look forward to seeing you!
