It was announced on Sunday 28th January that the Bishop of Guildford has appointed Rev'd Kate Blake to be the next Vicar of All Saints' Church in Banstead, subject to DBS and medical checks. Dates are yet to be confirmed, but she will definitely still be in Queensbury over Lent and Easter, and is hoping to leave to take up her new post fairly soon after that. Please pray for her and Tony, and for the two All Saints' parishes at Banstead and Queensbury, as we all prepare for new opportunities ahead.
We're hoping to become a Warm Welcome Hub for Queensbury, and open our Hall doors on Sunday afternoons for people who can't put their heating on at home to have a warm safe space to come and share some refreshments. There will be tables and chairs and also a quiet space so if you want to do homework that's fine, but if you'd like to have a chat or bring your knitting, we'd love to get to know you. We're trying to recruit volunteers to run it at the moment, so if you'd like to help, do get in touch.
We're also still collecting for our local Food Bank, and they really need our support, so if you can add a few items to your weekly shop we'd be happy to take delivery of them and pass them on. We're in church on a Sunday morning around our 10am service, or on a Wednesday afternoon around our 3pm service.
And if you would like to improve your English by chatting to someone, you are very welcome to practise on us! În cazul în care doriți să îmbunătățească limba engleză prin vorbind informal cu cineva, ai fi foarte binevenit pentru a practica pe noi!
