Watch out for details of future events
Food for Restos du Cœur to give to othersWe collect for Resto du Coeur, Gaillac, a food bank, all the year round. They really appreciate our gifts and have said could we possibly consider giving cleaning materials for humans and habitats! Please leave your donation in the container in the Presbytery
Take a book from our shelves of nearly new books. We suggest that you put €2.00 for hardbacks and €1.00 for paperbacks in the coffee basket.
A cupboard soon to be upgraded to a DVD stack has been filled with our unwanted DVDs. Fill it and take ones as you want.
A donation of 2€ for each DVD but a credit of 1€ for each one you return. Money in the coffee basket please. This is an honesty system.
We use the coffee fund to replenish the supplies but principally it is to help others in need and occasionally ourselves.
A Call to Ministry
We often think that the only form of ministry is that of being a priest or lay reader but in this chaplaincy we interpret ministry in the broadest way. Currently in this congregation we are looking for
Congregational Worship Leaders (CWL)
CWLs lead morning prayer and assist the clergy during Holy Communion. There is a formal training and the CWLs are licenced to take part in this ministry. If you are interested please phone Revd Dan on 05 63 42 04 29.
Leading intercessions is easier than you think and training will be given if you feel that this is a form of ministry that you are called to.
Greeters and Coffee Makers
Greeting people coming into to church with a smile and handshake is one of the easiest things to do but is also one of the most important as being made to feel welcome encourages people to come back and worship again. Similarly more Coffee makers are needed. Please see Iain or Tricia if this form of ministry interests you.
