General Notices

PARISH FETE 2017

Well done everyone many thanks to everyone who helped at the Parish fete it was a great success. St John Ambulance estimate we had over 500 people through, so it is Well done to the very many people who helped set up, take down and run stalls, and to everyone who came, and commiserations to those who weren’t able. The estimated revenue from the day is about £3,350, over £300 more than last year. So it was a successful day financially too. If you were a stallholder and want to see what your stall made, do see your local Fete Coordinator. Tilly Evershed.

PARISH FETE 2018 Oh Yes!
Please keep Saturday June 30th free for next year's Fete. Please consider making it a priority to be available that day. Things will always come up that we can't move, but if you have a choice, please choose to help your parish in this important outreach event. Thank you.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
For our new Stay and Play 0-5 year old group on Monday afternoons (1pm-2.30pm) at St John's. Building on the success of Little Acorns, Bouncing Babies, and the other children's services we've been developing, comes this new afternoon group. The format will be similar to Little Acorns, although we anticipate slightly smaller numbers. If you can offer a regular commitment, once a month, or more often, jobs include helping with craft, running the kitchen, talking to carers and the children, setting up, tidying away and much more, so all can find a place. Please contact Martin (martindavis26@tiscali.co.uk, or 07909 976637). We hope to start on the 10th July!

THANK YOU
We at St John's wish to thank all who supported our recent fund raising events. Firstly we had a Calendar Draw with the winning date being 13th September. The winner was Malcolm Seward and the date was his birthday. A sum of £151 was raised for our Hall Renovation Fund. Secondly a Coffee Morning and Garden Event was very successful and raised £327. This again is for the Renovation Fund. A huge thank you is extended to all who supported, attended and enjoyed these events. The aim of the Renovation Fund is to contribute towards the redecoration of the Hall and the replacement of the lighting.

THANK YOU: ART WEEKS
Thank you to everyone who helped and supported us during artweeks. We are pleased to say we will be donating £501.82 to church funds.

THANK YOU
to all who supported the Soup lunch last Saturday. £200.50 was raised for Christian Aid.

CHEQUES PAYABLE TO THE CHURCH
Please note that we have changed Banks and any cheques, for planned giving or otherwise, must be made payable to Kidlington with Hampton Poyle PCC. (Kidlington PCC or St Mary's church Kidlington, are no longer accepted.} This will not affect your standing orders.

IONA SERVICE
Every Tuesday 7.30pm St John's Lady Chapel. We are making our Iona Communion a weekly event. If you like a more contemplative service, with alternative liturgies - usually based on those from Iona, then you would be very welcome.


Dated Notices


PENTECOST JAMBOREE Sun 4th June
Pentecost is the Sunday when all the Kidlington churches meet together for a joint service. This will be at 10.30am in St Mary's. There will be no service at St John's, but please don’t stay at home. Do come and join fellow Christians to worship God together.

The service is followed by a Jamboree from 1.30pm to 4pm in Kidlington High Street.

PENTECOST JAMBOREE Sun 4th June
The Kidlington Jamboree will be taking place in and around the High Street on Pentecost Sunday June 4 from 1.30pm–4pm.

First, please do come along to the event and encourage your friends and neighbours as well. Secondly, please think if you can offer to help in any way at all on the day; this could be helping set up or clear away, or "staffing" an activity - just half an hour when you, with others, look after the "Hook a Duck", or Climbing Wall queue, or ... would be a great help.
