A NOTICE FROM GIRLGUIDING, URMSTON DIVISION

 

     1st Flixton Rainbows, 2nd Flixton Brownies and 2nd Flixton Guides                     . . .  volunteers needed!

CAN YOU DO SOMETHING AMAZING AND KEEP OUR GIRLGUIDING GROUPS OPEN?

We need more volunteers aged 18+ to ensure we can continue to give girls aged 5–14 in Flixton opportunities for fun, friendship, challenge and adventure.  You could help by offering to volunteer at St John’s on a Friday and give these girls the chance to discover their potential and learn new skills that set them up for life.

No experience necessary. We will provide lots of support, offer free training and give you a friendly welcome!

We also have a range of flexible volunteering opportunities available across Urmston in groups with girls aged 5-18.

If you are interested, or would like to know more, please email urmstonrangers@gmail.com or register online at https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/get-involved/become-a-volunteer/register-your-interest/ and we will be in touch!

Thank you!!

CORONAVIRUS COLLECTION

At St John's we do not ask people outside the church to help with our expenses as a church, believing that our own members' giving should enable us to 'pay our way' (though friends and visitors do make donations from time to time), and our Church Council has reaffirmed its longstanding policy that we will give away, this year as in any other, one tenth of our total donation income to Christian and charitable work outside our own. We believe in a generous God who will care for us if we are generous too.   

In addition, right now we are having a special collection which will form the basis for an extra donation by us to a Christian charity or charities working with those in need because of the coronavirus, at home and/or abroad. This is primarily an appeal to our own church members, but anyone is welcome to join in by using the red button on our Home Page - click here to go to it.
