16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Service

On Wednesday at 12 noon is a short service as part of the Mothers’ Union campaign of prayer and awareness of the issues of Gender Violence.  All welcome to attend.

 

Perton Christmas Fair… Saturday!

This 5th wonderful Christmas Community event opens at 12 noon with Gavin Williamson MP kicking us off, and closes with Lord Wrottesley turning on the lights and drawing the raffle at 4pm. With stalls and entertainment and refreshments in the church, civic centre, library and Anders Square.

 

Church Christmas Meal

On Friday 8th December we will have our sumptuous Church Christmas Meal together. This year we are hosting this at the church with outside caterers providing our fine fare! The hope is that being at church makes it easier for families to attend as we don’t need to share the space, and can put on entertainment for children and adults.  Our hope is that most will be able to come along and enjoy this lovely evening together. All are very welcome. We have decided that all children under 16 will be free, and we wouldn’t want anybody to be unable to come due to the cost. Some members of the church family have given more in order to enable others to be with us, so please do come to this fun festive time together.

 

Sign Up… Sign Up!!

We have a number of Carol Singing opportunities and it would be good to have a reasonable size group for each of these, so please have a think and next time you’re in church, sign up on the sheets in the lobby.  The times and dates are:

Fairtrade Shop

Volunteers are needed to run the shop in Wolverhampton, any morning or afternoon. Please speak to Ann for details.

 

Delivering Prayer Cards Each Week

From mid September, not only will pray for certain streets in Perton each week, we are hoping for someone to visit the streets for each week, to pray and deliver a new postcard through the letter boxes, letting folks know we are praying for them, and inviting them to get in touch if they would like to. Please see the sign-up sheet in the vestibule to put your name against one or more weeks over the next year.
