MESSAGE FROM JIM, SARAH, JOEL AND HANNAH
Thank you so much to everyone who supported us at the collation on Monday evening, it was a service we will always cherish and made very special by seeing so many RNWK folk there. Thank you! As Bishop Simon mentioned, we and St George’s are very much praying for you all in the early stages of the Parish vacancy at Fawkham and Hartley. Do keep in touch. My new e-mail is jim@stgeorgesgravesend.org I have left other contact details with Marion. God bless.

BIBLE, BREW AND BISCUITS
There will be a relaxed and informal get together at Ruby Wheal’s house at 3 Hartley Road, Longfield to have a brew of your choice with some biscuits in the warm glow of the Bible. If you would like a light hearted chat through some of the familiar Bible passages then please do come along. For further information and the date of the next meeting please speak to Ruby or Steph.

OPEN CHURCH WEDNESDAYS FROM APRIL TO SEPTEMBER – MORNINGS 10.00am -12.00noon
Thank you to everyone who has agreed to help open our church to visitors for just 2 hours each Wednesday morning during the spring and summer months.  Stewards operate in pairs and the time passes quickly. Although we have already had to put a rota in place we would be very grateful for more volunteers as it would lessen the load on those who have already agreed to help. If you would like more information please speak to Gill Horner. The stewards for Wednesday 29 May will be Jill Williams and Frances West.
