Looking Ahead

2020 PROJECTS UPDATE
St Mary's new Refectory facilities. We have now received seven expressions of interest to our tender document for new hall facilities for St Mary's. This brief was based on the comments from interested parties in our consultation period. All the architects qualified to work with historic buildings. The 2020 projects committee will shortlist and interview architects in the week beginning July 16th, probably on Thursday and Friday 19th and 20th. These interviews are open to anyone who would like to be there and listen / watch. The 2020 projects team will be the interviewing panel but everyone can come and we will take your comments into consideration. So please hold these dates in your diaries if you might be interested.

JOYFUL NOISE from September 7th
A new monthly service for adults, babies and children 'Make a joyful noise to the Lord!' (Psalm 98.4). Building on our links with local families through baptisms and the Hub groups, in September we plan to start a church service for babies, children and their parents/carers. This will be on Friday mornings at St Mary's, starting on Friday September 7th, initially on a monthly basis. I am forming a team of people to help with planning and running the sessions - anything from telling bible stories, songs, simple craft, themes, refreshments, chatting to parents and carers, etc. Please contact Laura if you can help, or if you would like to know more, and please keep this initiative in your prayer
