Pilgrimage to Greece in St Paul's Steps 12- 20 May 2019
Derek is planning a trip following Paul's first trip into Europe, from the Greek coast nearest Turkey through Philippi, Thessalonica, Athens to Corinth. Along the way we will visit the ancient sites, in the company of a Greek guide, and pray and worship together. Brochures are now in church - an introductory meeting is planned for Thurs 26 July. More details from Derek. 



PCC Meeting The PCC met on Wednesday and approved plans to renovate the hall. Over the summer new radiators will be installed to comply with health and safety regulations; the hall floor will be sanded and treated; and toilets, stairs and Upper Room carpet replaced. The PCC also appointed a new cleaning company to take over the hall and church toilets. Richmond council has approved our plans to replace the two notice boards on Park Road and St James’s Road. The PCC agreed to increase our contribution to next year’s Common Fund by the rate of inflation, 2.5% and make a donation to St Richard’s Project Grow (see the Spire).

Summer Specials for young people Through the summer, when Shell Seekers does not meet, we are aiming to offer some children’s activities during the 9:30 service. Please speak to Derek if you can help. There will also be an 11:00 service on 19 August, followed by a picnic and activities in the vicarage garden. It has been decided to cancel the holiday club.
