TANZANIA CHARITY FOR TEACHERS – Chloe Hyatt would like to say thank you for raising £28.29 by buying loom bands and donating money for her teacher’s charity, which trains African young people to become teachers.
PCC MINUTES of 24th June – minutes are on the notice board in the hall. A number of important decisions were taken to grow the ministry and mission of the Church. One of which is to re-designate the use of the Meeting Room as a Prayer Room. This will become a quiet space after services and during the week for prayer and quite conversations. The room is to be re-decorated and refurbished over the summer. As part of this process the storage space will be reviewed. Please talk to the Wardens if you wish to find out more, thank you.
FOOD BANK – the PCC has agreed that All Saints will become a collecting point for a local food bank. This means that we will collect food to be taken to a distribution point in another church, near Streetly. More details of this project, to help those in poverty will follow. Rev’d Mandy
ALL SAINTS’ PRAYER DIARY – we’re planning to develop a prayer diary, to help us to pray for one another and our community. Please let Rev’d Mandy know if you’re not on the electoral roll and would like to be included in the diary or if you are, and you’d like to opt out!
INTERNSHIP– Thank you if have offered to help. I invite you to pray for those of us involved in this process of discernment. Thank you Rev’d Mandy
