Tearfund Big Quiz Night
This is an evening which raises money for Tearfund and is always fun and enjoyable. You can book as a group (maybe your Connect Group or with a group of friends) or come on your own and we will allocate you a group to join. Book on Sunday morning or on the website. Queries: firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Sunday 29th January from 3-5pm we will be holding a Welcome Tea for those new to St Stephens. If are new to this church and would like to attend please contact Caroline Newbold email@example.com.
St David's Home
We will be holding a Candlemas Hymns of Praise service on Sunday 29th January at 2:30pm. Please do pray for our team as they minister to the residents, staff and family visitors at St David's Home. If you would like to get involved with the services we run at St David's please speak to Peter Devereux or Sally Horattides.
Church Council (PCC) Meeting
Our next PCC meeting will be held on Monday 30th January at 8pm. Please pray for God's wisdom and guidance as the PCC work together to discern God's plans for our church.
Monthly Prayer Meeting
Each month on the first Tuesday we meet at 8pm at church to pray together for the work of St Stephen's and God's plan for us. The next Prayer Gathering is on 7th February.
New Wine (week A)
This summer New Wine is in a new venue (Maidstone in Kent) so it’s not too far for us to travel. It is also shorter, running from Wednesday 26th – Sunday 30th July which means that we don’t need to take a whole week of annual leave to attend. New Wine has always proved a good experience for those of us who have attended and whether you camp, hire a caravan or stay in a local hotel/B&B you will have a great time. More details are here or do speak to Ruth Robinson direct. Tickets are cheaper if you book before 31st January.
We are planning a Sunday afternoon of Board games or similar. Please let Jane Maffett know if you are interested in coming to such an event (or even helping). firstname.lastname@example.org
These are the streets in our parish we are praying for this fortnight – please do pray for all who live there and for people to come to know Jesus
