Summer Holidays: our ministers are all taking some time off. Peter will not be working until Thursday this week. The Pastoral Care Team will be available if you want to talk to someone.
Famine in East Africa: drought has hit a number of countries which are also
suffering the increased costs of basic foods which normally come from Ukraine
or Russia. This threatens their populations with starvation. Several charities
are able to save lives there if we give them the money, such as BMS World
Mission at https://www.bmsworldmission.org/appeal/ukraine-impact/ or Christian Aid at https://www.christianaid.org.uk/appeals/emergencies/east-africa-hunger-crisis-appeal

Deacons’ Election: none of our deacons has come to the end of their three-year term this year. However, as we have two vacancies on the diaconate, we would be pleased to have new nominations. Please ask Mary for a nomination form: any member can nominate another, but you have to get their permission first.
