White Christmas Stalls

On Saturday 8th we carried the White Christmas over to the Church hall and had lots of activities and games for people to enjoy including raffles and a Beauty and the beast stall.

The Garden Room Project

UPDATE !!!

UPDATE !!!

   

As you know, we’ve all been hard at work planning, and fundraising to build St John’s Garden Room - a comfortable and welcoming space for church and community groups to use and enjoy. With all your hard work, and particular thanks to Peter Crocombe and his planning team and Gill Salter and her fundraising team, we now have sufficient funds, and the necessary permissions in place from the Diocese and from Croydon planning office, to be able to begin building. 

The building work is expected to begin in the week beginning 5th November and last for about 6 months. During that time the Garden of Remembrance will be fenced off and at times there is likely to be limited access to the south side of the church. I’m sure you will bear with us while the work goes on.

 If you have any particular needs or concerns at any time, please do speak to Jenny.

UPDATE !!!

   

Although we’ve done really well with fundraising, and securing funds from external sources, we do still need to raise a bit more to cover all our costs. So our fundraising continues – please continue to support events which will raise much-needed funds for the project


   

If you would like to make a donation towards the building of the garden room, perhaps in memory of a loved one or in thanksgiving for an event eg. an anniversary or significant birthday, or in celebration of an achievement, please take a “brick donation” pack from the back of the church.

If you would like any further information please contact Gill Salter
