HOLIDAY CLUB

Wednesdays August 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th from 2.30pm to 5.30pm

It is a time of lots of laughter, games, messy crafts, story time and food. This year we will be journeying to Egypt and meeting a man called Moses. All children are welcome, along with their parents. There is a small charge to help with the cost of the food.

Men’s Group

On 11th May we welcomed Helen Tucker from Routes to Roots charity for homeless people in Poole. Helen spoke with great passion and compassion of the work she does and the people she works with. It was encouraging and challenging to hear of all the donations of clothing, shoes, food and time that are made and all the services that are offered from haircuts to chiropody, medical care to advocacy and counselling. Thank you so much to Helen. For more info look up www.routestoroots.org

On 8th June Paul Lory very kindly prepared a visual trip down memory lane, focusing on adverts from the last 60 years (or more)! As usual, lots of reminiscence and discussion followed and we enjoyed pastries from the Tesco “Fareshare”, generously donated to local charities and community groups. These donations are passed on to all those coming for “Foodbank parcels” and appreciated by members of the many community groups and activities that use the hall and church and beyond.

Next Meeting July 13th at 10am.

On August 10th I am calling all men’s group members to come along to help with the clearing of the churchyard - many thanks. JF

Repairs to church floor

The PCC of St. Clement's Church is in the process of obtaining a Faculty to carry out the repairs to the church floor. After many years of discussion and consideration you will be pleased to hear that repairs to the church floor have been agreed with the Diocese. It is anticipated therefore that the Church will be closed from 9th September 2019 so these works can be carried out in the autumn. It is expected that the work will take three to four months. Please pray for this project, that all things go smoothly.

All normal services and occasional offices will be carried out in the Church Hall rather than the church with the exception of Weddings which will take place elsewhere. Please do ring Gill Dowdall or the clergy team in the church office if you have any queries or concerns about this project. 01202 733390 (mornings). Thank you
