Alton Webteam: June 2016
When our Lighthouse sessions begin again in September, after the summer break, our team will be reduced to just 3 because we shall have lost Liz Underhill. This leaves us with little flexibility, especially as those of us in the team have other Sunday duties that have to be taken into consideration when preparing the rota.
> Please consider prayerfully whether you might be able to help in this vital work. We use Scripture Union materials which are of good quality and necessitate very little extra preparation; and the children are delightful.
> Please talk to me or one of the others in the team (Nancy Buck, Christine & Steve Meers) if you would like more information.
> Thank you.
> Judy Nicholls.
