ABBEY CHURCH CHARITABLE GIVING
At the next PCC meeting on 25th May we shall be considering our Charitable Giving. As in the past we shall hope to support one overseas and one local charity. If you have any particular thoughts about supporting a charity, would you please speak to one of the Church Wardens, Peter or Sally or any member of the PCC. FJ
REVD BELINDA SEARLE-BARNES
as you all probably know by now, Belinda and Paul Searle-Barnes have moved away from the area to be nearer to their family. Belinda played a very active role in the Benefice during the Interregnum and has continued giving ministerial support to Fr John during his incumbency. Paul was also a familiar face, often playing the organ and leading Taize services.
If you would like to contribute to a collection to enable them to buy something as a gift from us for their new home, please place it in an envelope, cheques payable to Beaulieu Abbey Church, and write BS-B on the back of the cheque. Give the envelopes to a church warden.
We will collect until 14th May.
