Dolls Needed: A Request from Andrea Weller

As you may know, I work at Worthing Hospital.
We often have patients who have dementia.
I would like to have a supply of dressed dolls to give out
to such patients in order to calm them.

They do not need to be new but must be in good condition.

If you can help, please bring them to church
and give them to Sheila Powell.

Thanks in anticipation,
Andrea


Altar Servers at the 10:00am Sunday Service

The number of people able to act as Acolytes and Crucifers
has dropped; we would dearly like new members to join us.

The duties are not onerous, and these roles give an opportunity
not only to serve the church but also to develop relationships
within the church with both lay and ordained members.

If you are interested, or would like more information,
please speak to Judy Short after the service.


Adur East Lions Club: "Message in your Wallet"

The Lions Club gave us "Message in a Tube" for our fridges
which ensures that vital medical information about us
is available to emergency services
in case of an accident at home.

They now bring us "Message in your Wallet",
so that we are also covered when we are out and about.

They are available in the church porch for people who would like one -
for themselves, a relative or a friend.


Church Cleaning: Volunteers Urgently Needed

Pauline would dearly like help with the church cleaning 
which she had previously been doing almost single-handedly.

Some volunteers have kindly come forward,
but more are needed.

Ideally, she would like to hear from people prepared to
form teams of two for the cleaning of church and vestry
one week every month.

If you can help, please speak to her -
and make her a very happy bunny!


Craft and Fellowship Group: Appeal for Materials

The Craft and Fellowship Group need:

  • buttons
  • wool
  • embroidery silks
  • ribbons
  • remnants of material/lining material

If you are able to provide any of these items, we will be very grateful.

Please speak to Sheila or Angela
