Christian Aid

I would like to say a big thank you to all who donated to Christian Aid this year and to those who helped distribute envelopes or were a ‘drop off’ house for donations from their neighbours.

The envelopes returned in this way contained £916.66, to add to the £230 donated through our e-envelope and the £2,810 through local Shirley Churches.  So the total donated from Shirley came to £3,956.66, to which will be added just over another £560 through Gift Aid.

Well done and thank you . We all know finances are tight for many people this summer, but Shirley’s generosity to others is something to be proud of.

Please share this good news and thanks with others you know!

King Richard

Cinema @ St John’s is showing King Richard on the 18th June at 7:30pm

Armed with a clear vision and a brazen, 78-page plan, Richard Williams is determined to write his two daughters, Venus and Serena, into history. Training on tennis courts in Compton, Calif., Richard shapes the girls’ unyielding commitment and keen intuition. Together, the Williams family defies seemingly insurmountable odds and the prevailing expectations laid before them.

Online ticket sales for this event are closed.

Come and join the fun of the cinema @ St John’s, we have a licensed bar, sweet shop and hot dogs to help make the evening go with a swing – or is that a back hand!.

All our films are subtitled so that everyone can enjoy the film.
