Mystery Jar Tombola StallThe idea is to take a clean jar and fill the jar with mystery new items – sweets, toys, stationery, cosmetics, small gifts etc. Then put the lid on and wrap the whole jar as imaginatively as you choose, so the contents cannot be seen.

Parish Mission: 27th January - 11th February 2018:
PARISH MISSION - INTO THE LIGHT: 27th JANUARY - 11th FEBRUARY 2018: We are greatly looking forward to welcoming the Sion Community into our parishes early in the new year; to lead us through a time of celebration, renewal and outreach. The purpose of the Parish Census is two-fold: to aid the pastoral work of the Parish and as a way to 'opt in' to the home visiting, offered by the Sion Mission Team. The visits are a very informal way of sharing faith, receiving prayer and learning more about the Mission.

The next planning meeting will be on Sunday 10th December at 15:00 in the Upper Room, with Karen - all welcome!
As ever: Pray: Please pray for the success of our Mission. Maybe consider joining us on Thursday's at 6.30pm for Evening Prayer, before the Blessed Sacrament? Prepare: Please consider how you might offer your gifts and resources, we really do need all hands on deck! (volunteer forms at the back of Church)
Invite: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations!" Matthew 28:19. Please consider making space in your diary now for the Mission and think about inviting friends, family, neighbours and strangers!
