Oasis Building Mission Trip
Martin Sheringham is leading a building team to the Oasis Centre, Traiskirchen, Vienna on 2/3rd February returning 9/10th February. They will be remodelling a toilet to allow for wheelchair access. The team going with Martin is Chris Drake, Paul Garcia and Andy Wahl – all from Church on the Green. Please pray for their preparations.
Clothing Donations to the Oasis Refugee Centre
Martin and the team would like to take clothing aid as they will be going in a van. Oasis would like donations of clothing but they are mainly in need of new adult men’s/women’s underwear and socks. Other warm second hand clothing – coats, hats etc. would be welcome, but the greatest need is for the former. Please bring donations to the church and leave in the box which will be in the church entrance or in the church office. Any queries, please contact Jo or Martin Sheringham.

A family service will take place at Priory Street on 17th March at 3.30pm. The service will be fairly short and will finish with tea. Please put the date in your diary and start inviting family and friends along. We’ll also be advertising it at the Ark, Toddler group etc. Many thanks.
Accommodation for summer course 2019

The course is scheduled to take place again, from Sunday 21st July to Thursday 1st August 2019. Some participants will only stay till Saturday 27th July. If you are able to provide accommodation (including breakfast and most evening meals) for someone for all or part of this time, please contact Steve and Gill Bryant. Thank you so much for your help.
