If you wish to attend the Adult Activity afternoon please contact Elizabeth Pook on 01635 47923, as I am away from 24th July for three weeks.  Elizabeth is looking for board games for the session on Wednesday, 8th August.  Any offers?  Thank you, Cathie Read.

Any experienced ‘crocheteers’ out there?  You are needed for Adult Craft afternoon on Wednesday, 15th August to give Carole a helping hand.  Contact Cathie Read on 01635 226936.

Thinking about being confirmed?  If you would like to find out more about being confirmed (or about adult baptism, which is usually combined with confirmation), then please speak to Revd Becky or e-mail her at bbevan.vicar@stg-stj.org.uk or telephone her on 01635 524994.  A service of confirmation will take place on Sunday, 4th November at St George’s, conducted by the Bishop of Reading.

We are looking to update the photos on the Church website and need a small stock of good quality images, which capture life at St George’s.  If you have any suitable photos and would be happy for them to be used, then please speak to Angela Brennan.

Two young adults, male and female, are travelling and working in the UK, and need somewhere to stay in the Newbury area until 24th September, close to public transport, with a Church-going couple or family.  Not necessarily together.  If you can help, then please contact Gill Briggs on 07490439529 for more information.

The last weekly walk will go ahead on the 19th July.  No further walks until after the summer.  Hope you may be able to join us.  Meet at 20.00 outside the Church.  Includes a stop at a pub for refreshment.  Do talk to me if you have any questions.  Bridget Laxton.
