TK Annual Meeting 

Wednesday 5th July
Meeting starting at 7.30pm – followed by refreshments
At Capel Community Church, Days Road, Capel St Mary IP9 2JW
We would like to invite you to this year's Talitha Koum AGM. We have reached a significant time in the development of the Hope Centre, with the Accommodation Block A and Resource Centre Block B completed. Staff are being appointed to run the Centre, with a view to having the first women coming in during August/September.
Our Women Together recovery support groups are doing a fantastic work reaching out to women with addictions. Seventy women have passed through our doors and many lives have been improved.
The last year has seen amazing progress made and we are grateful to God for leading us to this point. We would love to share with you how this has happened and also what is planned for the future.
This will be my last meeting as a Trustee and I shall be handing over the Chair's role to Michael Clark. I have been involved with TK (formerly Release Ipswich), from the early days of the original vision and the setting up of the charity in 2006. I have been privileged to be a part of this journey and to see how God has gone before us. I am grateful for the work of my fellow Trustees, the staff and the many volunteers who have all contributed so much over this period. We look forward to the future and the Centre fulfilling its role in assisting women in their journeys of recovery from addiction.
Do please come and join with us if you possibly can.

Peter Matthews
Chair of Trustees

Message from Fiona Key

 We recently received this lovely message from Fiona Key. It's great to have this news about her! You can listen to a sample of Libby's song by clicking on the link underneath the message and can download it for just 99p! 
Dear All,
We worshipped at St. John's for 17 very happy years.  We therefore wish to share our joy about Libby, our youngest daughter.  
She has released a worship song which we pray maybe a blessing to many.  
Do have a listen & pass on to the fellowship by Googling: Libby Key Thank you
Much love to all that remember 'Lizzie' as she was then known by! 

God bless,
Fiona Key
