Bishops’ Lent Appeal 2018
2018 marks 40years of the Bath and Wells companion link with the five Anglican diocese of Zambia and for that reason, this year the Bishops’ Lent Appeal will raise money to support Lay Ministry in Somerset and in Zambia.  There are 3 ways we can help:
1 – Pray for Lay Ministry
2 – Engage with the Appeal
3 – Donate to the Appeal
Please see the letter on the noticeboard at the back of the Mission Church for further information.

Can you help?
We have an owner who is a resident of Street asking for some dog walking support for Magic their 11 year old Collie / Springer cross so we wondered whether any of the church family might like to volunteer to help.
Our aim is to relieve the owners of any worry concerning the welfare of their pets both during and after their own lifetime making us unique amongst charities.
Contact Sally direct on 01736 758707 or email sallycollins@cinnamon.org.uk . The Cinnamon Trust.
The volunteers can gain access to our volunteer page on our website or www.cinnamon.org.uk or by emailing us at volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk
