The builders have started! Our toilets really are coming... Thank you very much to all who helped to cover everything up again and tidy as much as possible.  

 

We decided at the last meeting of the Discussion group that we will pause, until after Christmas. Watch this space - but probably next meeting in January 2018. 

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.

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.
