Friends of St Michael’s present a Family Fun Day, Saturday 2nd July
Bishop's Stortford Hospitality Support, Wednesdays from 11:30am-2pm
St Michael's is providing space at the WCC for Ukranian refugees and their host families to meet together once a week. We need to provide some volunteers to be on hand during this time, hopefully for a two-hour slot each. We've had some great sessions, offering a very light lunch and informal language lessons from 11:45am, but we will have no idea how many people will turn up each week or for how long they will want to stay. This is an evolving situation, depending on what amount of support hosts and their guests would like, and I hope, as St Michael's rep on the BS Hospitality Support Group, there are other volunteers who I can ask to come along. Please let me know if you are willing to help with these support sessions. Jenny Klincke (833523 / firstname.lastname@example.org )
Then a concert at 7pm for 7:30pm: ‘The World of Gilbert & Sullivan’, performed by The Wandering Minstrels. £17 including finger buffet (£19 on the door). Tickets via TicketTailor here or contact Rob Klincke. Rob is also requesting good quality bric-a-brac for one of the stalls at the fun day: please bring donations along and leave them at the back of the church, on the green carpet. Thank you.
TLC Tuesday 5th July, 2:15pm for 2:30pm, WCC
An opportunity to be able to join in with tea and talk, read the paper, play board games … and then later in the afternoon we welcome families after school for a short while, to share in reading/play and enjoy a biscuit/cake/fruit snack. Do come along … and tell your friends too! We’ll begin with a short time of prayer just after 2:15pm before our session at 2:30pm, until about 4:30pm. This coming month, we’re having a summer holiday theme!
