21st May: St John's Mission Sunday
We will displaying exhibits of many of the missions we support at St John’s during informal morning services. Coffee will be available prior to the 11am service so that you can mingle round the displays with your intake of caffeine! Local writer Jenny Taylor, recently of Lapido Media
, tells how she caught the bug.
Both Compassion and the Robinsons are asking St Johns for a list of children we, as individuals, are supporting. Would you please talk to Diana Ray-Mathur or Kat McDonald respectively as this would greatly help them and thence you to pray!
