New Vicar at St. Michael's and Ascension

Thursday 11th January was a special day for the congregation at St Michael's and The Ascension, as they welcomed their new vicar Alwyn Pereira. After a triumphant service at St Michael’s led by George Newton and Bishop Andrew everyone (about 150 people) came here to Park for refreshments.
Avril Eyers would like to thank the team who volunteered to help order and set out the food, those who served it, and those who washed up and cleared away. Thank you, everyone. We've had a thank you note from Barbara and Dick, the churchwardens, which was read on Sunday 11th January.

 PA/AV Desks

There have been quite a few occasions recently when there hasn’t been anyone to manage the PA desk. It would be good to have more people trained to use it. You may look at the bank of knobs and sliders, and think it’s too technical, but on the whole, there are only a few things you have to do - its not difficult. l can run sessions on either/both of Tue 6th/Tue 13th February. If you are interested, please let me know, and which dlate(s) you can manage. If you have done it before, but want a refresher, you are welcome to come as well, or come to our music practice evenings on alternate Mondays (next one on 5” Feb).

 Big Christmas Card

Thank you to everyone who gave money when they signed the Big Christmas Card. The total raised was £91, which is being given to Mid Wessex CHristan Camps for the extra expenses incurred by their move from New Milton to Singleton.

 The Source

When we had the Mission service in Autumn last year it was suggested that people could use a Jingle-Jangle-Jar to collect their small change for The Source. Six people did that, and between them they have raised £72.50. Thanks to those kind people.

Town Centre Pastoral Team

We need more Team Members in the town centre.

Some of the people who have worked on the TCPT for several years have moved on or 'retired' and we do need to guarantee at least two people to make up a Team: this sometimes proves difficult.

There is only one qualification: that you believe in and wish to serve Jesus Christ. You may be a good conversationalist, or, like me, reserved and quiet, but God accepts our willingness and enables us to do far more than we might expect-it can be quite exciting!

Do speak to me, David Cottingham, if you are interested in ‘having a look’.

Church Walks

 The last walk was a very enjoyable trek around Compton, following part of the North Downs Way and ending up in the Watts Gallery Tea Rooms for a Welsh Rarebit! Walks have been hibernating for the winter and because of the incapacity of the organizer; but watch this space for the next 'impromptu' walk. For details of changes to the organization of the walks calendar, CLICK HERE.

Through The Gates TTg

 Through the Gates (TTg) is a Christian based community project run by Viv Dawes in Aldershot, providing support for anyone (aged 18 and over) who has a drug and alcohol addiction.,. Each TTg participant has weekly individual sessions and in these sessions they work through what is known as The Genesis Process, which helps participants look at the root causes of ad-diction and how it has affected the body, mind, emotions, relationships and spirit.
Viv
currently runs TTg on their own with one volunteer who helps facilitate a group. The project supports 6 - 8 people at any one time who together work through The Genesis Process throughout the course of a year.
The materials, drug/alcohol tests and stationery all add up, and TTg costs about £6,500 to run each year. If you would like to help support this work financially, please contact Viv on 07905 403838 or email ttg.dawes@hotmail.co.uk

Intercare - A Reminder

 If you have patent medicines unused with at least 15 months before the expiry date, you may wish to send them to Intercare, 46, The Halfcroft, Syston, Leicester. LE7 1LD. They will forward them to needy folk in the Africa. You can view the work of Intercare on www.intercare.org.uk Forwarding costs money, of course, so any little gift with the medicines would be appreciated, though do not let this stop us from sending.
