BART Women’s Fellowship
Helen Cooke, the speaker at the first meeting of the new year, gave an inspiring and most thought provoking talk on the subject of ‘Something New’. We also enjoyed some members’ recollections of their own wedding day and the ‘something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’ which formed part of the celebrations.
The speaker at the next meeting, to be held at 2.00pm in Ryarsh Church Hall on Thursday, 6th February, will be Nathan Tough, speaking on behalf of the charity ‘Porchlight’, Kent’s largest charity for homeless and vulnerable people. Porchlight exists for people who have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to - some of whom are living on the streets, and others who are need of support to prevent or resolve any issues that could put them at risk of homelessness.
All ladies are very welcome!

Last year the amount raised from selling preserves in the church was slightly down on previous years, £845, still a worthwhile sum. Many thanks to all those who contribute in so many different ways to the success of the venture .
For those who may be new to the village, and who may like to support us, the church is open every day and is closer than the shops if you need a jar of marmalade, jam or chutney.

Food bank box
If you choose to donate biscuits to the food bank box in the church porch I’m sure that they will be enjoyed by the recipients, but please don’t think that someone has pinched them when they disappear. There seems to be a mouse that likes biscuits too! So the biscuits will be stored at Commority until there are enough other goodies in the box to take it to Margaret Ivell in Birling, who coordinates the deliveries to the Pilsdon centre.
Thursday Morning Prayer
Come and join us in bible reading and prayer for our communities, including our schools, the world, and the church at 8.30am for half an hour at St Peter & St Paul, Trottiscliffe, each Thursday morning.
