As we pray with and for the people of Suriname we will be part of a great wave of prayer encircling the globe.  This service will be celebrated in 170 countries and here in the British Isles over 6000 services will be taking place.  Please come and join us and be part of this wonderful occasion.

Annual Church Meetings St Ippolyts, 26th April 2018

ANNUAL CHURCH MEETINGS - ST. IPPOLYTS

 “The Annual Parishioners Meeting” (to elect churchwardens) and “The Annual Parochial Church Meeting of the Parish of St. Ippolyts” will be held in St. Ippolyts Parish Hall at 7.30pm. on Thursday 26th April 2018.  Everyone is welcome to attend but only those on the St. Ippolyts Church Electoral Roll may vote at the second meeting. 

The meeting is the Church’s AGM and there will be a review of 2017 with reports from the Churchwardens, our Treasurer, and St. Ippolyts School, as well as the appointment of officers, sidesmen and independent financial examiners.  To make the evening ‘go with a flow’ there will be wine, soft drinks and nibbles available.

The Church Electoral Roll is closed 15 days before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting and this means Wednesday 11th April 2018.  Please check on the roll, which is in a file at the rear of the church, to see that you are registered and your details are correct.  If you are not on the roll and wish to be, there are forms available at the back of church, which should then be handed to Michael Hooper, our Electoral Roll Officer, or Jane Veasey the other Churchwarden.

We are looking for new members of our Parochial Church Council.  If you are interested in playing a key role in the future of our church please consider putting yourself forward for election, it is not a particularly onerous task! Those wishing to be elected can put their names on the election list at the back of the church. In additional we are seeking a treasurer to take over from Leanne. If you feel you could spare the time to play an important roll in the life of our church please consider taking on this task.

BEARS AND PRAYERS TODDLER SERVICE

BEARS AND PRAYERS TODDLER SERVICE

I am sorry to say that the Bears and Prayers Toddler Service will no longer be running at St. Ippolyts Church.  Despite attempting various days and times, we failed to attract new people and with some of our existing members moving on to nursery, there were only a couple of little people left.

However, following the success of our ‘Light Party’ in October, I intend to start a new half-termly event for the young people of our parishes which I hope will start just before Easter.

The vision is that we will meet after school between 4.30pm. and 6.00pm. and enjoy stories, games and crafts and have a short act of worship before sharing tea together.  It will be open to anyone of primary school age or under and we will even let them bring their grown-up’s with them too!!

Please keep an eye out for more details in next month’s PAX but feel free to email me with any questions or suggestions at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
