Holiday Club Drama Team Needed!

The Watt Family are due back at St John’s 17th-19th February to share their latest adventures with us at Holiday Club.  However they seem to have lost their plane tickets from the Wild West!

We need a team of actors (age 11-111!) who can join us 9:00 am-3:00 pm each day to share the exciting story of the Watt Family. 
If you enjoy acting and can help bring the Watt Family to St John’s again in February please speak to Clare Johnston or contact the Church Office ASAP.  There is also still time to sign your children up to join us at Holiday Club – forms available online or in the foyer!

Prayer for 'Who Let The Dads Out' 

A message from John Horsley.

I’m getting in touch to ask the members of St John’s to support the Who Let The Dads Out? sessions, both generally and during the sessions
It's an important mission to the Dads and Father figures of the community  and so I'm asking whether you might be able to support this venture in prayer? You may be able to commit to praying regularly each week (either on your own or with others) or maybe agree to pray on a few occasions, maybe for half an hour, to cover this mission in prayer.

Please get back to me if you are willing and able to help whether in a big or a small way.
It would help if you could tell me what pattern of prayer would suit you.
The sessions are once a month mostly on the first Saturday.

Trust130 Home insurance offer 

  2020-01-10 Ecclesiastical Trus

Trust130 is very simple...For every new home insurance policy taken out by anyone with Ecclesiastical they offer to donate £130 to an Anglican church or cathedral of the policyholder’s choice . While a donation of £130 may not sound like a lot, churches and congregations who have embraced Trust 130 , have used the donations to fund all sorts of things for their church for example structural repairs; new noticeboards; family BBQ and fun days or just to help balance the books.
