School Uniform Project If you would like to support the project to provide a number of school uniforms and gym kits for children at our local primary school and wish to make a donation to the funds, please see Daphne or Ailsa.

Fellowship Group The next meeting of the St John’s Fellowship Group will take place on Tuesday 9th July from 1.30pm-3.30pm.  All are welcome along for good company, a chat and a cuppa.  And, if you would like to join the group on its Summer Outing to Tyndrum on 27th August, please speak to Pat Kerr.

Vestry Meeting The next Vestry meeting will be on Tuesday 25th June.  Please speak to any member of the Vestry if you would like anything raised on the agenda.

Pictures/Memories of St John’s As we will be celebrating our anniversary in September, please let Stuart or Joyce know if you have any photographs or memories that we can share with everyone on the day.  Thank You

Doors Open Days 2024 St John’s will be taking part again this year, on 28th and 29th of September.  Please speak to Angela or Pam if you would like to be involved on either one or both days.

Beginners Tai Chi Class Laurene is planning to start a Tai Chi class at St John’s in September.  It will be suitable for people with no previous experience and can be done either standing or sitting down, as both positions will give health benefits. It will be open to all, so invite your friends!  There will be refreshments, so Laurene is calling it the “Tai Chi Café” and the charge will be a small donation for the tea and coffee.  Laurene needs to know the best day and time for most people.  The choices are Wednesday mornings, Wednesday afternoons or Thursday afternoons.  Please speak to Laurene or email her at taichicafe@warpmail.net  

Bell Ringing Stuart would love to have the bells rung more regularly and is planning to organise a training weekend for people to learn how to chime them.  If you would like more information or know of anyone else who might be interested, please speak to Stuart or email him at priest@sjea.org.uk
