SOCIALS – have your say

SOCIALS – have your say
We are looking to put a social calendar together & would love some ideas of events that you would like to do as a church.  It would also be helpful to know what days & times would suit people and if you would be willing to help him arrange an event or even take the lead on it.  
This is a great opportunity for us, as a church, to bring friends, build new relationships and enjoy fellowship together.
Events don't have to be down at church and don't have to involve food.  So, let your imagination loose & tell us what you'd like to do (try to make it realistic though).
Please follow the link below by October 14th & let us know your thoughts.

PARKING IN THE LIDO MIDWEEK

The Lido has asked us to refrain from parking in their carpark on weekdays as it is now contracted out to 2 local businesses.  Evenings & weekends should still be fine, but if you are coming down to church during the day Mon-Fri, please park elsewhere.  This is a permanent change with immediate effect.

HARVEST GIFTS

Thank you for your support for the North Guildford Foodbank last week, with your harvest gifts, and regularly.  We were able to deliver a really good amount of items to them after our Harvest service and we also collected £131.50 to give them, which they can use to help top up fuel cards for clients.  They are becoming increasingly busy each year & expect that demand will increase over the winter months with the changes to the Benefits system.  Heather & Rose, the coordinators, pass on their thanks & ask we keep them in our prayers.
