Please pray:


  • giving thanks for God’s glorious raising of Jesus from death, offering new life and hope to all creation;
  • or God to provide the right people to be churchwardens and PCC members;
  • for the work of the Bible Society;
  • for all who suffer because of wars, terrorism, harsh rule and natural disasters;
  • for those who live in Testlands Avenue;
  • for those who lead the singing at our Sunday services and at weddings;
  • for Maybush St Peters; one of our SO16 partners.

Did you enjoy the Easter Flowers? The flower fund is in need of donations. Thank you for any help.



Office Help –We may still need someone to help in the office on Thursday mornings.  They need to be happy using a computer.  Also, someone else who can man St John’s on a Thursday morning.  Do talk to Claire if you are interested.



May Fair – please use the sign-up sheets at St John’s if you are willing to help at the May Fair / sing in the flash mob choir/pray over any prayer requests.


New Data Protection laws are coming soon, and all churches must audit what personal data they hold, and why.  If, as part of your church work, you hold people’s personal data (including email addresses) please help us by telling the Parish Office.  You need do nothing else about it for now. 


Testimonies - don't forget that as a church we love to hear a few words about how God has been at work in people's lives recently. Speak to Julian or another minister and they will arrange to fit you in.
