Coffee Morning Sat 2nd March

Church and Centre will join together in a coffee morning for Lucy (daughter of Lynn Annis), Jordan and Grace as they settle into their new home. You will have heard our prayers for baby Grace who is still recovering in hospital. Their new home needs some essentials so it will be ready for specialist care she will need once they are able to bring her home.

The Coffee morning is Sat 2nd March; please do come along. In the meantime, we will need donations for raffle and tombola, and some help on the day.

Donations can be left with Gail during the week.

MINE Priorities for the Year

You will be aware that MINE (Mission Initiative Newcastle East) is the formal structure that allows the churches of Byker and Walker to work together. Although most worship and pastoral needs are addressed at the parish level, other things we do are primarily the result of us working together. Schools work and children and youth work are examples of this, as is the Debt Advice project. Other things are Confirmation, Bible Studies, Lent and seasonal programs that bring us together. There is likely more we could be doing.

Is there anything you would like MINE to be doing for the benefit of all the Churches? The clergy and ministers of MINE meet regularly to plan ahead, which they will be doing in a few weeks. If you have any suggestions, speak with clergy or readers about it.
