This Sunday we are looking forward to the baptism of Lily and Harrison. The theme of the service is 'Making a Difference' Below is the poster.
As part of the service we will be highlighting the work of Toybox a charity that supports children living on the streets and in particular their campaign #livesnotlabels supporting Street Children in Nairobi so just a heads up that if you or your children would like a #livesnotlabels wristband these will be available for a donation of £1 which will go to the Toybox charity. PJ church supports this charity annually. Rev Tim Davis will give a couple of stories about how this charity is 'Making a Difference' as we think about how we are also called to 'make a difference'.
We had a great church work day today. So much was acheived inside and out. Thank you to Russell who brought the Cherry picker and to Simon who was okay to go up in it to clear gutters. Well done David who fitted 88 light bulbs!! (ably assisted by Clive and Peter). Thank you to the team of cleaners: Yvonne, Linda, Gail, Heather, Margaret. Thank you to Roy, Malcolm, David and Tim outside in the garden. Well done David B for being up ladders and painting window frames while I evicted spiders and several hundered webs from the vicar's vestry. A really productive day.
