Hello chaps, there will be no ‘official’ meet up at the Lamb in August. Of course, you’re still free to meet up if anyone feels inspired to initiate something! Otherwise we will meet again on the first Thursday of September (4th). Flix Gillett
During the summer holidays we will not be running any of our usual Sunday morning ACCelerate meetings. From today until Sunday 31st August our meetings will be for all ages.
This Sunday, and next week, we are continuing our ‘Follow’ theme, ‘Who are You Following and Who is Following You?’. This Sunday we are looking at the disciple Thomas.
Sunday 10th August is a special Kickstart the Event meeting which will follow on from our fun-filled children’s Playscheme week.
From 17th August, for 3 weeks, we will be continuing our ‘Follow’ theme, ‘Who are You Following and Who is Following You?’, by looking at 3 walks in the Bible to remember – the walk around Jericho, Ruth’s walk with Naomi and Peter’s walk on the water.
If you are helping with Kickstart the Event there will be a training session at TLA on Sunday 3rd August. If you are on one of the children’s teams, the Child Protection training is compulsory so please make sure you are there. If you are on one of the Support Teams (Refreshments & Welcoming), it’s very important that you attend your relevant session as this is our first Playscheme in TLA and you will need to know which areas you will be working in. If you are unable to attend, please speak to Jon Jolly as soon as possible.
2pm onwards Set up team
3pm Child Protection Training
3.30pm Team allocation and running order
4pm Support Team Training
The next prayer time for ‘Prodigals’ will be on Saturday 2nd August from 8 – 9am at Sue Moss’ house. Please come and join us if there is somebody you would like like to pray for. If you’d like to stay for a shared breakfast afterwards, please bring a contribution. See Maryann Gillett or call her on 07502 226915.
Next week (26th July – 1st August) is Wick Week, a celebration of the Wick community. There are a variety of events for young and old, with the church running a number of activities including a Family Party, Film Night and Soccer School! More information is available on the Wick Week website at wickweek.org where you can view the whole programme.
Arun Wanderers are playing Jamaica Inn at their home ground in Climping this Sunday. The match starts at 2pm and all spectators are very welcome.
Also, the Mellor Practice have an annual sponsor’s cricket match on Sunday 17th August, 2pm start, at the Littlehampton Ground, St Flora’s Road, free refreshments and BBQ. Several Arun Wanderers players are playing for the Practice and all at the Church are invited!!
If you have an ACC team polo shirt and you are helping with Kickstart the Event, please make sure you bring it with you to wear. If you have one but you aren’t helping, please would you return it (preferably clean!) to the Church Office as soon as possible to ensure we have enough team shirts for everybody.
