Sports Academy Holiday Club 2016

Sports Academy 2016We had a super Holiday Club for 4 mornings, writes Gill Holder. The puppets, games, challenges, memory verses, craft, prayer and ‘Mr Fit’  kept the 17 -20 children enthusiastically engaged. Many parents came for the final Thursday evening session.  The material was based on the life of David, and included themes such as our unique value to God, doing the right thing even when it is hard and God keeps us safe.

Many thanks to all the volunteers, especially our three  teenage  leaders and all those who supported us behind the scenes and in prayer. Have a look at some of the many photos of the event (there are even more on the SPSJ Facebook page: click here for more…

Paul’s retirement weekend 1st and 2nd October.

Paul TownerPaul’s last Sunday with us, as most of you will know, is 2nd October. More details will follow, but the outline plan is:
On Saturday 1st October, there will be a Ceilidh (or Barn Dance if you prefer!) in St. Peter’s, from early evening, so that everybody can come, from the youngest to the oldest. There will also be a simple supper.

On Sunday 2nd October, as well as the usual 9.00 am service at St.James’, there will be a joint final service at St. Peter’s at 10.30 am (no 10.30 service at St. James), where we will be joined by members of Paul and Anne’s family and invited guests. There are plans for a lunch following the service.

More details of both events to follow in due course but put these important dates in your diaries now. (In case you are wondering, our Harvest Festival services are moved to 9th October, when there will be a joint 10.30 service at St. James (no 10.30 service at St. Peter’s), with a visiting speaker).
