"THY KINGDOM COME"

Come for whatever period of time you can.

LIGHTING PROJECT
at last weeks APCM Fr Robert spoke about the proposed Lighting Project for the Church which is now very necessary as the current system is old and almost obsolete. We have to raise c£50,000to achieve this and we will, therefore, be organising all sorts of Fundraising events to help us get started. We will also be  approaching Charity organisations.  Any donations, however small will be greatly appreciated.  We have twelve months to reach this target. If you want to clear your pockets or purses of any small change pop it into the demijohn at the back of Church.
Every little helps!  Thank you.

FUNDRAISING ADVANCE NOTICE
to begin our Fundraising in earnest Margaret Rangdale has offered to open her garden on Saturday 3rd June between 2.00pm and 4.00pm.  Tickets £4 (under 12 free) to include a cream tea.  Tickets available from Margaret or Sue Hawes.   More details later.

SUMMER FAYRE
 Saturday 10th June at Plympton St Maurice Primary School from 1.30pm onwards.  Can you help to provide any items for the stalls or a raffle prize?  Please see Sue H (tel no 345054) or one of the Churchwardens.
