Is a former member of this Church, and her husband was a former Reader here until his death. Margaret would like visit St Peter’s again and would like to stay in the village. She is in her 80’s but does not need care, although she cannot walk great distances. Could someone please host Margaret? If you are able to help please speak to Pam Hancock for further details.
Thanet Food Link.
As we head into the summer months we are finding that the food bank is generally quite low on stock while the needs of the people remain high. So any non-perishable food would be a great help, thank you.
Impact England 2018 – inter-church week of mission 29th July – 5th August.
We need people to make and serve food and to be on car park duty at St Georges School, and have welcoming people who can smile and give directions etc. Those with a bit more energy can be involved in messy church, the sports camps and community projects. For more information contact Rev. Alan Osborn Pastor at Elim Oasis Church www.elimoasischurch.com
Monday at 7
Our next event is on Monday 13th August in the vicarage garden for our American Supper. We will be asking all members to bring either a savoury or sweet dish, so please start to think what you can bring. I will need to know what you are bringing ASAP so we don’t have too many of any one thing. Contact me, Marion Brown on Tel: 604524 or email Thank you
Fundraising Committee Report
‘Sing Along to the Forties’ Night
Our forthcoming ‘Sing Along to the Forties’ event, which was scheduled for 25th August, has had to be cancelled. Unforeseen circumstances have compelled the Calders, who were to have staged the Forties evening, to cancel it, so we no longer have any FR events in August. This is a very great pity. Some people had already begun to express interest in the ‘Sing Along to the Forties’ night and it seemed set fair to be a popular, well attended and jolly occasion. The Fund Raising Committee will be discussing this issue in detail at its 23rfd July meeting
Indoor Boot Fair
The next scheduled Fund Raising occasion will be the Indoor Boot Fair in the Church Hall on Saturday 22nd September.
Monday Home Group 2:30 pm at 92 Dumpton Park Drive, Broadstairs CT10 1RL. We are currently taking our summer break, and will be resuming in September.
Wednesday Home Group
We are now taking a break for the summer months. Please watch this space about the future of this Home Group.

We are always SO grateful for the cash donations given
each week at services.
If you are a tax payer it would be an even greater benefit
if you could put your donation in a completed yellow
Gift Aid envelope so that we can recover the extra 25p
in every pound given!
