Notices

 

Updated 22/02/2020

PLEASE NOTE:  Regrettably, because of the Covid19 crisis, ALL the activities noted here are currently suspended until further notice.  We seek to help one another wherever possible and pray especially for those who may feel isolated and lonely, and for all those having to make difficult decisions.

 

Something to think about:

As we approach Lent and walk the Way of the Cross, on our way to the Life Affirming joy of Easter, what positive and purposeful actions can we take to make our world a better place and nearer the Kingdom of Heaven?

The Noon Prayer Meeting will be in the Fellowship Room on Wednesday  4th, 11th, 18th, 25th March; and 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th April. 

This regular Wednesday Prayer Meeting meets every Wednesday in the Fellowship Room. 

Everybody welcome

 

Nico is leading a Bible Study on Tuesday 10th March from 7pm till 8.30 in the Fellowship Room. All are most welcome

This will be the last before Nico's Sabbatical, for which we wish her all the very best.

Planning for an exciting future

Saturday 7th March 09:30-13:00pm (in the Church Hall).  This is an informal and ‘fun’ morning. We want to hear your thoughts on what we need to do as a wider Church family, so that we continue to move forward for the next 200 years!

Everyone is invited, especially those families who attend our many activities such as Friends re-united, Messy Church, Friday Club and of course our own families and friends who fill the Church only at Easter and Christmas.

So please extend this invitation to all. Flyers to hand out and a sign up board are available in the Church Hall. We will finish at 1pm with a buffet meal. 

The London City Mission

A talk from Shane Goodyear from the Vauxhall Christian Centre.  Over the years we have had some very informative and interesting talks from delegates from the London City Mission, who for over 100 years have done much great work in the capital

The next Messy Church is on Friday 20th March, from 3.30 till 5.30 pm. The theme "Mothers and Families" will explore some of the mothers we meet in the Bible story.

Annual Lent Lunches

Following Ash Wednesday on 26th February, these lunches begin on Friday 28th February for the next six weeks at St. Martin's Public Hall, from 12 noon till 1.30pm.

Our friends from the Parish Church will be preparing the first two

The exploration of the "God in Love Unites Us" report and consultation concludes with a Circuit-wide Plenary Discussion at Ebenezer Methodist Church on Wednesday 26th February at 7.30pm to 9.00pm

Please make every effort to attend and make your voice heard.

Note: The consultation process will end with a decision being made at the March 2020 District Synod and 2020 Conference. 

 

For your diaries

From January 2020 (26 January, 23 February and 22 March, 4.00pm), Ebenezer is introducing ‘Friends @ 4’ once a month in the Church for 45 minutes, followed by a light supper. Through active participation in Bible stories, music and craft activities, together with a bucket load of fun, they hope to help our community grow even closer. There will be opportunities for all to explore, enquire, create, learn, build and work together.  A very warm welcome awaits.

Update from Ecce Homo  Rosemary Coote has sadly come to the decision that as a charity they are no longer able to afford to be able to send aid across to Romania, due to the increase in prices of transport and storage rental.   The hope was to amalgamate the two children’s homes enabling them to cut staff costs, but unfortunately a new law in Romania dictates that no more than 12 children may be looked after in each home.  Nothing else in Friends of Ecce Homo Charity will change.  Sponsoring families will continue as before.  Brick-a-Brac, furniture and good quality adult clothing is still welcome to be sold in the shop at Les Quennevais.  It is only the transports which travel over to Romania that will cease. The last lorry of aid will be leaving Jersey on January 25th 2020.
Rosemary would like to take this opportunity to kindly thank everyone who continues to support Ecce Homo, your support and kindness is greatly valued.

 

 

Please continue to remember an item or two for the food parcels at St Helier Methodist Centre when  shopping for your groceries. Rev. Tony Morling has expressed his gratitude to all who have been giving in the past. Please continue your support to help local folk less fortunate than ourselves. Donations may be left in the basket in the Vestibule.
