There are currently two home groups which normally meet fortnightly on Wednesdays in the afternoon at 2pm (Rob's) and in the evening at 7.30pm (at Rachel's).  The next meetings will be on Wednesday 12 December for the evening group and a Wednesday in the new year (date still to be decided) for the afternoon home group. If you would like to be put in touch with a home group, please contact Rachel Forrest or Carolyn Corbett. 

Prayer

We have a time of prayer each Saturday at 8.30am for around half an hour, except for the first Saturday in the month when we start at 9.30am and follow prayer with coffee/tea and croissants/brioche. The next 9.30am prayers will be on 5 January.  Please join us if you can.

PCC Meetings

The next  meeting of the PCC will be on Thursday 17 January 2019 at 7pm.

Mothers Union

The next meeting of the Mothers Union will be on Thursday 7 February 2019 when Rene Duff will be present.  If you would like to join MU or are interested in their activities please see Sue Williams who would be glad to talk to you. 

Prayer team

The church has a prayer team which is available to pray with anyone after a service or otherwise by appointment.  You may want to give thanks, ask for personal prayer for a situation including healing or pray for someone else.  The prayer team is there to be a support to you as we invite God to work.

Little Friends

The mums and toddlers group meets on Mondays (10am) and Wednesdays (9.30am) in term time.  If you would like to join the group please turn up on the appropriate day or contact Sue Cotton and you will be made very welcome.

Food Bank

There is a collection point for this in the hall which you are free to use. However, some of the local supermarkets do now provide a direct collection point which we would encourage you to use when you can, as it reduces the volume of items we need to physically take to the  main collection point in Cowes.

Other items

Various collections are organised by the church in addition to Food Bank referred to above.  Milk bottle tops are collected for Dogs for Disabilities, used stamps are collected for the Island Blind Society and Mother's Union collect used greetings cards.
