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 3 November. Please join us if you can.
The church and churchyard will be open from 10am until 4pm on Saturday 3 November for people to look at the graves and memorials dedicated to those who lost their lives on land and at sea during the first world war. Church members will be available to help visitors locate the relevant memorials. Refreshments will be served.
The next meeting of the PCC will be on Thursday 22 November 2018 at 7pm.
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.
The mums and toddlers group meets on Mondays (10am) and Wednesdays (9.30am) in term time. The new term starts on Monday 10 September. 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.
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.
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.
