60th Anniversary of Christian Aid Week House to House – 13-19 May 2018 
Collectors Needed. The parish will be holding its annual Christian Aid House to House collection as usual.  This year is special as Christian Aid is celebrating its 60th Anniversary of the running of the week, which started in 1957. We need people to join the very loyal group of Westbourne collectors. If you are interested please contact Robina.

Stone Pillow News  
Two boxes of food from the back of the church were taken to the Hub, Stonepillow in Crane Street, just after the spell of snow. The produce was very gratefully received as provisions had all run down due to the increased visits from people living on the streets during the very cold weather. Thank you for your donations. The Home and Overseas Committee wish to thank Cherry D for transporting the donations to Stonepillow over the past two years.

Giving
If you are able to make a regular contribution to the Church, the preferred method of giving is using the Parish Giving Scheme. Leaflets are at the back of the church or contact our Treasurer, Jonathan Kipling.
