Complete Renewal Of Electoral Roll 2019

Before our Annual Parochial Meeting, the Electoral Roll of all our worshippers and parishioners over the age of 16 who wish to be included, has to be TOTALLY RENEWED. Copies of the Electoral Roll forms will be available at our churches in good time before then.

The Church Electoral Rolls of the parishes up and down the country are the only means of registering some degree of practical membership and so showing the number of “active members” of the Church of England.

Annual Opening of Children's Society Boxes

The boxes will be opened, and money counted during March.  Would all Box Holders please bring their Boxes to Church from the 10th March.  If you can’t get to church please let us know and we will arrange collection.

On Sunday 7th April all the emptied boxes will be taken up to the Altar for a blessing.  They will then be available for collection at the end of the Service.

The Guild of Friends of St Lawrence’s Church

I am sure that the sight of all the poppies “planted” in November near to the War Memorial in St Lawrence’s churchyard will stay with many people for a long time.

The Caterham Hill Parish Council were selling the poppies at St Lawrence’s Winter Floral Festival in December.  From the amount raised the Parish Council generously donated £500 to St Lawrence’s church, for which we are very grateful.

The church is becoming very much a community church.  Ridge Radio’s Live Music evenings and the Repair Café are now regular monthly events held in the church and we thank them very much indeed for their ongoing donations.  Following the success of the Craft Fair held in the church in the autumn another one will be held on 23rd March.

All the kind donations the Guild receives are spent on the upkeep of the Ancient Church.  With their help we are getting nearer to our goal of having a flush toilet installed – but more about that at a later date.

The World Day of Prayer service is being held in St Lawrence’s on Friday 1st March at 7.30 pm.  This year the service has been prepared by Christian Women of Slovenia.  St Mary’s music group Free Spirit and St Luke’s Larks will provide the music.  Refreshments will be served after the service with music and a film of Slovenia.   All are welcome.
