Have a tube of Smarties on us, eat the chocolates and then fill the tube with 20p coins!  Over time you can gradually collect approximately £12.  Once full, bring it back and exchange it for a brand new tube of Smarties - that you can eat and fill again!   Please get behind the 40 people that are heading to Romania over the course of 2019 to continue the orphanage community project.
Launching on Sunday March 3rd at all 3 services

Can you bake or eat cake? Then we need your help.  On Sunday March 3rd we will be having a Bake Sale at each service to raise money for the Romania trips.  If you're able to bake something for us to sell, please let us know by emailing the church office -
office@stjohnscolchester.org.uk - and bring it to church on the Friday, or before 10am on the Sunday.  If you're more of an eater - make sure you bring some cash! 

Do you have any unwanted books, DVD’s, CD’s, Games & Puzzles (adults & children’s titles) that are in good, working condition?  If so, we'd love for you to donate them at church over the next few weeks.  On Sunday March 17 we will be running a stall at all 3 services. This is an great opportunity to recycle any of these unwanted items, so if you are planning a spring clean – start now and donate to this excellent cause.  Please place any donated items in the boxes in the church reception.  Cat Carter and the Romania Team -
