Shrublands Foodbank

These are the items required for the food bank this month. They are also desperate for strong carrier bags. Donations can be left at the back of church, at the vicarage, taken to the food bank (Mondays 9am-12 noon or Thursdays 12 noon-3pm) or left in the donation box at the Shirley co-op.

More information on the food bank can he found here

Whether you are able to give a little, or a lot, we will be truly grateful for your support.

Have your seen our new window grilles?

Chances are you haven’t as they were only installed last week and they are very discrete and made exactly to the shape of the windows. Thank you to John Mahoney Stained Glass Ltd for their excellent craftmanship.

This is an expense we could have done without but sadly was necessary as a result of prolonged vandalism of stone throwing at our church windows. The broken stained glass window panes have also been repaired. We would be truly grateful to receive any contributions you feel able to make towards the £6,500 cost. You can donate by clicking here.

BRING-N-BUY PLANT SALE.

Can you help?

  • We are looking for any unwanted planters – terracotta, earthenware or ceramic. Please leave at the Vicarage.
  • If you are thinning out plants or have grown seeds and have an excess of plants etc, we would be happy to receive these. We would be grateful if you could hang onto any plants until Friday 28th May but if you have something you can offer please let us know so we have an idea of what’s coming in.
  • We would welcome any help on the day – setting up and running the stall.

Please contact either Helen on 07770 885545 or Viv on 07799 571939 with details of plants, offers of help or if you have any questions.

Many thanks for all your support

Live music returns to St John’s this weekend!

Our ‘Lockdown choir‘ is being unlocked!! Whilst they will be reduced in number due to social distancing rules, it will be great to hear live music again in our Church supporting our worship. Why not book to come to our 10am Mass. The anthem is “The Lord Bless you and Keep you” by John Rutter which is one of the 30 anthems and 30 hymns they recorded during the lockdown.

Equally exciting is that we will be hearing our Frobenius organ played for the 1st time in a year. It has been cleaned and had some ‘broken’ notes fixed and in May when we hope the weather will be warmer, it will be tuned. We are very grateful to have been awarded a grant towards the cost of this from the Reginald Baker Charitable Trust. If you would like to make a contribution towards this and support the music at St John’s, please visit our giving page or use the donate button on our website. Thank you the Reginald Baker Charitable Trust and everyone who has so generously supported us over the past year.  

Help to keep services at St John’s going …

and be a part of our team at the back of the church on a Sunday morning 

If you have been attending church during the pandemic, you will have seen the Warden’s Team of Paul, Christine and Mick (assisted by Gillian) holding the fort every Sunday.

The Team needs your help in the form of

·      two more deputy wardens

·     Sidespersons to check in those who have made Eventbrite bookings for the 9am family service and 10am Mass. (Time commitment 8:30am to about 10:15am).

·      people to operate our audio-visual system for live streaming. If you can use a PC you could easily do this!

Training will be given with all these roles.

Interested?  If you, or anyone you know who might be interested in finding out more, please contact any of the wardens either at the back of the church on Sunday or by email to [email protected]

Anyone who responded a similar request before Christmas need not respond this time. 

Regards

Tim Roberson
