HELP US PLAN OUR NEW GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE


Kathrin Krause is inviting you to join a planning meeting on a Saturday morning in June. We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas for this project in memory of Shaan Ellinghouse. Kindly email me, if you would like to attend this meeting.


SUNDAYS@BELMONT: Sunday 5TH June at 5pm (Note change of time!)


Following a long break, Sundays@Belmont will kick off again on Sunday evening 5thJune at 5pm in the church hall. We know that Covid has been a very challenging time for many people in terms of their mental health, and so our opening event will look at the often unspoken but very real issue of depression and anxiety. Four brave people from our church community will share something of their own struggles in this area as part of a panel discussion, but we will also draw on some local expertise to consider ways to cope and support each other. With a view to addressing the felt needs of our people, we also plan to hold three more events in 2022, when we will consider grief and loss, gender identity & sexual orientation, and parenting.


Yours, Russell Davies


OUR NEXT CHURCH MEETING: Sunday 12th June at 11h00


A WELCOME LUNCH FOR OUR NEW MEMBERS: Sunday 24th July at 12pm


The lunch will be hosted by Helen Shaw and will offer our new members an opportunity to meet our Church Council. Kindly confirm your attendance with me.
