Week 1. The Leprosy Mission: improving leprosy-affected communities in Sri Lanka. The first week’s project is to help communities in Sri Lanka severely affected by leprosy. It is 2000 years since Jesus healed people with leprosy. Sri Lanka has one of the highest rates of leprosy in the world, with nearly 2000 new cases diagnosed in 2018. The recent civil conflicts over 25 years severely disrupted health care provision, notably early treatment, resulting in high rates of disability. Our giving will support the Leprosy Mission’s work in the Northern Province, directly to address both the underlying causes and the treatment of leprosy.
Donations in memory of departed loved ones can be given to Monica Bridgewater. If anyone has greenery in their garden which we could use, please bring it to church on or before the morning of Saturday 31st March.
New Sidesmen needed – Would you like to be a sidesman on Sunday mornings at either the 8am or 10am services? How we welcome people to the Church is very important and we would like your help with this essential role. Please contact Tina Ruygrok or Bill Cottle for more information.
The sign-up board is up and ready in the church hall. The Summer Music Season runs from May 5th to September 15th – 20 weeks in all.

If you would like to do this, please contact Monica Bridgewater in church after the 10 o’clock service, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 0208 948 5594
