PARKING IN LIDO CAR PARK DURING THE SEASON

We are very grateful to the management of the Lido for allowing us free use of their car park out of season.  The season is about to start (end of April – end of September) and, as usual, we ask that all visitors to the church only use the car park if the weather is not good.  If it is sunny and/or the temperature is going to be above 20 degrees, please use alternative parking (short term on local roads or drive past the Lido car park, up the hill until you reach a public car park by the Bowling Club).  … Read the rest

FOODBANK NEEDS

A huge ‘Thank you’ to you all for your regular support of the North Guildford Food Bank through your generous donations of produce over the past few months. It has been a busy time for us and is only now starting to quieten down after what seemed a lengthy spell of bad weather when we supplemented the food parcels with gas and electricity top-ups for those who were really struggling. The Guildford Lions also generously supply us with fresh potatoes, carrots and eggs each week. Fortunately, we never ran short, largely to your generosity and those like you who we know we can rely on, and our clients are really appreciative of what they receive. We do expect to be less busy over the summer but are still grateful for your donations. Currently, our specific needs are for the following items:   • Pasta/curry sauces • Marmite • Nappies sizes 4+, 5, 5+ • Cooking oil • Bags for life   Please don’t bring chocolate items while the weather is so hot.    Please keep our clients in your prayers    … Read the rest
