JIM FLETCHER
A message from Jim – Following the recent announcement I wanted to give you advanced warning of my last Sunday in the group and when I am licensed at St. George’s, as it would be lovely to see lots of you at these services as I value your support and prayer so much. My last Sunday will be the 24th March with a joint Group Holy Communion, 10.30am at the Fawkham and Hartley Church Centre. The licensing service at St. George’s will be Monday 29th April, 7.30pm. Being a bigger Church there is no need of a ticket system but it would be helpful to know how many may be coming—please give your name to Marion Strachan in the Church Centre office 704972. There may also be an opportunity to car share if you speak to Marion.
