Alton Webteam: February 2017
We are planning to start a second Service After School based at All Saints' Church. The SAS at St Lawrence's is hugely popular and successful but it is difficult for the children from the Butts school to attend. The new session will most likely run on the second Wednesday of each month between 3 and 5pm in school terms. We are planning to run our first session on 10th May when our theme will be prayer. The pattern for the afternoon will be a welcoming activity followed by refreshments, a story, song and prayer and then a variety of activities. We are looking for volunteers to make and serve the refreshments and help with the activities. The planning would be done for you so it would mostly involve turning up on the day. If you are interested, please drop in to the St Lawrence's session on the 9th March from 3.30pm and meet us there. Or phone Lynn on 07850 232995.
Please pray for this exciting new venture.
Clive Anderson, Ben Burge, David Hinks and Lynn Power.
