Keith Underhill: May 2015
Church Anniversary June 2015.
A reminder that Jean and Michael Simmonds will be returning to Alton for our Church Anniversary this month. Jean was the Minister here before Keith, serving for eight years.
Jean will be taking both services on Sunday 28th June at 10:00am and 6:30pm — with the evening service being a focus on 'Turning Point', the charity that their daughter Jo has been so involved with in Kenya for many years now.
After the morning service there will be tea, coffee and a birthday cake.
The day before (Saturday 27th) we will be hosting the GAP travelling meal with lunch at midday please sign up using the form on the notice board in the church foyer — we are pleased that Jean and Michael will be joining us for this as well.
As is our practice, we will be holding our Gift Day as part of our Church Anniversary, and letters and gift envelopes will be available from early June. We encourage you to bring these envelopes along with you to our Anniversary services.
We have decided that all the money given as part of our Gift Day this year will be equally divided between Church Funds and Turning Point.
See you there!
