Lent Book Group Update
Thank you for the expressions of interest in the Lent Book Group looking at a different chapter of Paula Gooder’s Let Me Go There: The Spirit of Lent each week.
The group will meet on Tuesday evenings 7:30-9pm at the Vicarage (12th March-9th April).
Several people have said that Tuesday evenings would be difficult, so we are exploring the possibility of a Wednesday afternoon group as well. To help with planning, please sign up on the sheet at the back of Church by Sunday 24th February. If you possibly can, please get hold of a copy of the book. If that would be difficult for you, please put a tick by your name and we will do an online order week beginning 25th February.

To everyone who helped or supported the February Coffee Morning. Before expenses the total raised was a fantastic £480. So yes indeed a big Thank You to all
Think we even might have left a few crumbs for the church mouse.
Signup sheets are at the back of church up until September. If you would like to come and help even for an hour we would be most grateful.
Ginny and Pam.

We are looking to reintroduce to our Communion and Celebratory Services a team of servers. This would be on a rota basis the more volunteers we have the less often volunteers would be required. This is open to all young and old male or female. Training if required can be given. If you would like to join this team please speak to Rev. Charles or Sue Turner.

Our Coffee Morning is over, St James needs time to recover.
Such a buzz and a hum did our lovely folk make, As they chatted away while sampling our cake.
Anne had the raffle with prizes galore.As she welcomed all who came through the door.
Kitchen staff were kept on their toes, As orders for drinks steadily rose, Elizabeth on coffee, and Brian on teas,
Expertly dispatched, they are the bees knees,
Trays of this, and trays of that Went flying through the serving hatch.
Pam with new teapots, tea towels for Jean. An organised kitchen nowhere else would be seen.
In solitary confinement, was cake cutter Ginny, Slicing and plating, and wearing her pinny.
May was kept busy serving choices of cake,
And there was our Shirley with money to take.
Chris and John had the clearing in hand, Pots and crocks swiftly returned to the stand.
Hands in the sink was the lovely Christine, Washing and cleaning the steady stream.
Amongst all the, bustle were Charles and Sybil. Office duties were„ca|ling, no time for a nibble.
Twelve thirty arrived - we were almost done,
And in four more weeks, another one.
