Bibby Stockholm
Thank you to everyone who has already contributed to the welcome packs for the men on the barge. There are even more men on the Bibby Stockholm now and in order to welcome them all in the same way we are continuing to collect the following items; toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, shower gel, deodorant, shaving cream, razors, notepads and pens.
If you would like to contribute to the collection please can you take it to the Parish Office at St Aldhelm's Church Centre and ask for it to be put in the box.

Keep in Touch and Warm Welcome

Hi Everyone,
If you are facing a Christmas that looks far from merry, please make sure you look at the programme for what's available throughout this month, especially on Christmas Day.
There are four opportunities for meals and company on Christmas Day; two on the front of the programme at St Paul's and St Aldhelm's and on the back are details of Christmas Day opening hours for The Veteran's Hub and Soul Food.
And, as always, lots of other activities and events which are free or low priced and always warm and welcoming...well actually, I can't say that the walks are warm but they are definitely very welcoming!
Don't forget to look on www.achurchnearyou.com for details of celebration services near you and please phone me if you have any questions or need more information and I'll try my best to help.
