To pop an envelope alongside/ inside your milk bottle lid bag. Please could you save from your incoming post the postage stamps (they need a 5mm boarder, to be eligible).

Step it up by asking work/ school/ friends/ family to save to.

These are being collected by 3 of our congregation for a charity, so bring them with you and pop them by the notice board to the left as you come in the door.

Please if you can spare a little room in the kitchen or a bag on a coat hook, save these lids from your milk bottle tops. It is strictly these lids only. So please save us the task of sorting through.

You will find at the back of the church (as you go in on the left), by a noticeboard where they can be placed.

Make it a social thing and ask friends and family to join you in collecting.

The lids are then weighed in and money given to the charity. In this case Thames Valley Air Ambulance.

In this case every lid counts.

Some photos from our church yesterday.

If you were unsure what the new addition at the front is. Then here is a paragraph to explain.

The Lent Tree is made from the stripped back trunk of our 2018 Christmas tree. This is a tradition which we picked up at All Saints Church 3 or 4 years ago but the tradition is much older than that (who can tell us more in the comments below?).

Stripping back the tree reflects Jesus' experiences in the wilderness, which we mark in the season of Lent, when he gave up more or less everything except water and air for 40 days.

To emphasise our own faith stripped bare, we place a verse of the bible on the tree at each Sunday service, with a set for Holy Week. We will have a fully decorated tree on Easter Sunday. This year our set of verses are written on cut out paper leaves which have been encapsulated in plastic.

News on Mothering Sunday to follow soon.
