Jerusalem 2018: To up-date you; frustratingly, EasyJet still haven’t published their November flight schedule so I can’t get a price for our return flight. The outbound flight on Thursday, 25th October is currently priced at £134.00 which is competitive. I will keep checking and advise accordingly. Terry.
Holy Week Film: Our devotional film this year stars Joseph Fiennes and is a 2016 production called “Risen”. A Roman soldier is tasked to search for the resurrected Christ in the 40 days following the crucifixion. It’s been described as an old-fashioned Biblical spectacular with fresh blood in its veins.
Good Friday Walk of Witness: For those interested, Anglicans, Methodists and Catholics will be carrying a wooden cross and holding devotions between St. Wulstan’s and the Methodist Church in Wolstanton from 10.00am on Good Friday.
Thanks… to everyone who helped at yesterday’s Table Top Sale in the hall.
Christian Aid Walk: The annual CA sponsored walk around Tittesworth Reservoir will be held on Saturday, 24th March this year. More details and sponsorship forms are available in church today.
