Benefact – April/May 2017

0 comments

Well I can’t believe that Easter is almost here again with all the activity that it brings. We will have all the usual services associated with Easter and you will find these on the Service Sheet Insert. Just a reminder that Wednesday Compline will be at Hadnall on Wednesday 29th March at 19.00.

 

Now a plea for helpers to assist with a Spring Clean of the church ready for these services. This will take place on Thursday 13th April starting at 10.00 am. Refreshments will be available. Do come and help. You know what they say, “Many hands make light work”.

 

Also for Easter a reminder that if you would like to make a donation towards the Easter Lilies in memory of a loved one, there are envelopes in a basket as you enter the church. Please pass your completed envelopes to Kath, Jayne or Judi. The names of those remembered will be read out at the Easter Service. Thank You.

 

Another Easter event will be on Saturday 8th April in Hadnall Village hall starting at 18.00. This will be a Family Bingo session with an Easter theme. i.e. prizes will be Easter Eggs. There will also be a raffle and refreshments. There is no charge for entry; you just pay for your bingo cards. So do come and join in the fun.

The Ukulele Concert in February was a great hit and raised over £400. We were entertained with lots of old songs including some from George Formby himself. It was a lovely Evening. Thank you everyone who contributed.

Messy Church finally took place on March 11th after being deferred and was attended by 11 families including 4 new ones. Thank you all for supporting us, it makes it all worthwhile. The children and mums and/or dads got very messy finding “Hidden Treasure”. The next meeting is on Saturday 13th May at the usual time with a theme “The Lost Son”.

 

Saturday Coffee Mornings continue on 1st April – cost £1.00, and Thursday Coffee Mornings on 20th April with Judi at Astley Lodge. There is no charge for Thursdays as it is for Community Fellowship, Coffee and cake, not for fund raising.

 

Please see the Web Site for a list of forthcoming Fund Raising Events.

 

On a more serious note, may I remind you that the Church APCM is on Thursday 27th April in the Church starting at 19.00. Please come and have your say about the church especially in view of our forthcoming Interregnum. I am sure that by now you will all be aware that Rob is sadly retiring on 31st May this year. Just to give you advance notice that his final service will be held at Hadnall on 4th June at 10.30 am. This will be followed by a buffet in the Village hall. We will be very sad to be saying goodbye but we will also celebrate all the happy years he has been with us.
