Alton Webteam: November 2016
John and Janet Ogden from St Lawrence Church will be organising and hosting a lunch on Christmas Day in the St Lawrence Parish centre. A Christmas lunch has been prepared and hosted by members of the Methodist church with help from others in recent years, but this year St. Lawrence are pleased to organise this special event.
John and Janet are looking for volunteers to help set up on Christmas Eve, and on Christmas Day to prepare and cook lunch, serve the food and entertain guests. Any help with transporting guests would also be much appreciated.
Should anyone from the Methodist Church also like to be involved in making this event happen by contributing in any way, please contact John via email firstname.lastname@example.org, by phoning 07981 016938 or contact Janet by phoning 07894 076792.
