Church Draw October 2018

The monthly draw has been running for several years and is a way for you to help raise money for St Lawrence Church ongoing upkeep and activities.
The Friends of St Lawrence fundraising assists with maintenance of the church building, but none of this can be used for the upkeep of services and activities the church does.

For £12 a year, set up via standing order, your number will be placed in 13 draws (12 Monthly / 1 Christmas Draw), starting in September each year.

1st Prize – £25
2nd Prize – £15
3rd Prize – £10
4th Prize – £5

Play & Praise at St Lawrence Church

Play & Praise is a short informal service suitable for children from birth to when they start school; with story time, prayers, and songs with actions, craft activity and refreshments. The service takes place on Thursday afternoons; 2.15 – 3.15 leaving enough time for parents to collect older siblings from school.

Our service which is held in the Lady Chapel is the same each week so young children are quick to learn the prayers, the musical instruments and songs we use.
We have a craft time where the children will make something, usually from the bible story we had read to them earlier, and a welcome cuppa for all.

Our new term starts Thursday 6th September at 2.15.
We look forward to seeing you there​
