New Year = New Team Rector

Submitted by Derek Barnes on 3 January, 2016 - 10:30


We really want Dave Bruce and his family, Alice, Joshua and Eleanor to feel welcomed by us all as they officially “arrive” at 4pm on 24th January at a joint service at St Andrew’s followed by a Tea.

How can each of us be part of that welcome? Here are some ideas (the Vicarage has already been decorated and cleaned and a welcome pack of local produce was provided):

  • Sign up if you would like to come to the service on 24th January so seating and catering can be planned (back of church by 17.1.16)
  • Prepare and deliver a plate sweet or savoury finger food for the Tea following the service (Sign-up sheet at the back of church)
  • Be part of the Tea Co-ordinating Team (Please contact Mary or Barry)
  • Head up the Tea Co-ordinating team (Mary and Barry would love to hear from you)
  • Be part of the “Spruce for the Bruces” early Centre Spring Cleaning team on Saturday 16th January 9-4pm (Cleaning materials provided-come and go as you are able. All ages and skills welcome)
  • Help to decorate the church in style (Susie Barnes has ideas please talk to her)
  • Help move chairs in church and hall and tables into rooms at 2.30pm 
  • Donate an item of food with a long best-before date to a Welcome Hamper for the family or make a financial donation (Boxes at the back of church for both).
