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.
I am trying to increase the monthly draw numbers to 200 from its present 128.
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.
If we achieve the 200 numbers the draw values will be :
1st Prize – £50 (Currently £20)
2nd Prize – £25 (Currently £15)
3rd Prize – £10 (Currently £10)
4th Prize – £5 (Currently £5)
Do you want to join ?
If you enter, you could be a winner and help our wonderful church too. (Winners are notified after each draw).
If you have any queries you can contact me Chris Heins on 07837 745168 or 01785 824010.

PLAY AND 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.
We look forward to seeing you there
Play and Praise has been running very successfully for many years but currently needs some new helpers.
If you feel you might like to help please come along any Thursday afternoon or for more information contact Gwen Flavell on 01785 822898
