Advent ~ Gifts for the Pathway Refuge

We are once again collecting new toys, games or gifts for children at the Pathway refuge in Lichfield, also gift items for Mums. Please leave them unwrapped on the table in church.

These will be taken to Pathway on Friday 17th  December. Any gifts not used at Christmas will be saved and used for birthdays throughout the year. These families will have escaped an abusive situation and often have to leave with very little, sometimes nothing.

Also in aid of Pathway – there will be a Christmas Concert by Good Company Choir, on Wednesday 8th December 2.00 pm, at St. Michael’s on the Hill in Lichfield, to raise funds in support of the work of this Refuge. Tickets are £10 which includes a glass of wine. Available from Liz Binsley 472761 – If you wish to go names are needed by the end of November.

 

BIG INSIDE CHURCH CLEAN

Thank you to those who came to clean the church on Friday, it was much appreciated. We need to start a new cleaning rota on a weekly basis after that. TWO people for an hour and a half max spent per week doing light dusting and tidying is all that is necessary.

Any information needed, Tel – Judith Rickard 472682.
