Sunday 15 October Peace Walk. This is one of the highlights of the multi-faith year. All welcome. Meet at the Hindu Temple on West Road, 12.30pm. Continue via a church, a mosque, the site of the oldest synagogue in Newcastle, ending at the Sikh Gurdwara. 

Tuesday 17th Discussion group on "Hope". 5.30pm at 9 Chester Crescent. All welcome

Wednesday 18th: Open consultation on the "Resource church" for the diocese - at St Nicholas' cathedral. All welcome 

Saturday 21 October 2-4pm at St John’s Grainger Street, there is the private viewing of the artist-in-residence works: “Ritournelle”. The artist, Katia Kameli, was invited to consider the themes of residency, migration and belonging. All welcome. The exhibition continues until January

Next Sunday: Congregational meeting after the service. Shall we follow this with a Bring & Share lunch? 

The drains are now complete. That means all the building works are now complete until after Christmas. By the time you read this we should have received the grant from the National Churches Trust; and "Cards for Good Causes" are in place. Please support both them and our own shop.

SUGGESTIONS WELCOME for fundraising ideas for the building works. Whether you know somebody who could perform a concert or event, or whether it’s something off-the-wall, please come forward! Please speak to Hannah or another member of FSG, or simply come along to the meeting after the service.

 

We are running out of "favourite hymns". This means that if anyone would like to suggest hymns to sing at St Thomas' in the next few weeks, please speak to Catherine. 

 

If you have a bit of time free on a Saturday morning, we need volunteers to help serving teas and coffees. This is to provide a welcome to the community, as well as raise money for the reordering project. Lizzie is now looking after the rota for this (Thanks, Lizzie!). Please sign up on the notice at the back of church if you can help, 10.30am-1pm Saturdays.

 

St Thomas' is now on Twitter! The address is @sttomsnewcastle which is the same as the website. Many thanks to Lizzie, who set it up for us, and even tweeted the Lord Mayor's service! 

 

Don’t forget to return your moneyboxes when they’re full! If you need a new one, please see Hannah. All funds raised go towards the reordering.

 

Suggestions for this website always welcome.We do our best to keep it up to date, but can't always manage it. if you'd like to help, please do speak to Catherine or to Jonathan.
