Open House with Pawsons - 11 January 2020

As part of saying goodbye before heading to Japan, David and Manuela Pawson will be holding an open house in the new year. This will be on 11 January from 10.00am – 5.00pm at 11 Undercliff, Wolsey Gardens, Felixstowe, Suffolk IP11 7PG. If you think you might come, could you let either David or Manuela know, so they can estimate how much tea, coffee and cake to get!

Open Door Listening - 25th January 2020

The first Open Door session took place on 30th November which ran very successfully.  These sessions are an ideal opportunity for members of St John's to come along and chat informally about ideas, concerns etc.  Do please book yourself a place in January if you would like to chat anything through with either Clive, Dave or together.  Please contact Clive's PA, Tracey Fearn on 01394 383162 or email:

Fundraising Event for Cry in the Dark 

Thank you to those who supported the young people with their stall last Sunday (1st December).  £80 was raised, with a further £10 at the Hub Community Café on Monday.  All proceeds will go towards Cry in the Dark, working with children and young people with life limiting illnesses and diseases in north east Romania

Commissioning Service and Farewell to the Pawson Family 

Please come along to our Commissioning Service to support and encourage David and Manuela.   It would be lovely if you could stay on for the shared lunch afterwards to say farewell.  A simple plate of food (either savoury or sweet) home cooked or shop bought would be lovely - there is always plenty to go around so if you do forget on the day to bring food, please do stay!
