Easter is on its way and our Easter cards and gifts are all on the shelves now. The Real Easter Eggs are already selling well - so don’t forget to pick yours up before we run out. We do also have Sharing Eggs as in previous years – they contain 30 individual eggs and 30 story booklets for £30. They are perfect for donating to schools, nursery groups and giving out in Sunday schools. If you are interested, do let me know – I may even be able to split them between people if you want less than 30.

Grove Extravaganza will be on 16th June and we are already planning our stall and how we can work together with the other Christian organisations who will be there. If you are available to help us serve, set up or hand out leaflets on the day, please do let us know! It is quite an undertaking to be there but we really feel that it is important to be out and involved in the community.

12th – 17th March will be the last week of our book sale and all the books left will not only be reduced but they will be on 3 for 2 as well! Don’t miss the opportunity to pick up some great books, for an amazing discount.

Make & Bake for the under 5s on Friday morning 9.30am-11am will continue on every Friday this month until Holy Week. We will be making Mothering Sunday gifts this week, making bread the following week and Easter treats in three weeks’ time.

This month’s second Hot Meal Special will be a choice of Beef Lasagne or Vegetarian Cannelloni and Garlic Bread, served at 12.30pm on 28th March. As usual, do please book by the Monday lunchtime

The next Cornerstone Prayer Breakfast is Saturday, 10th March 8.30am. We look forward to seeing everyone to share prayer, fellowship, tea, coffee, and croissants with us.

God bless,

Sarah Shewring
