Eco Corner: What goes where? Toothbrushes that are too soft to use any more on your teeth can be given to Lynn B – she will use them at Double Elephant to clean inky items.                     Mary

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
More details are on the notice board in the Lower Hall.

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.
