CHRISTMAS THANKSGIVING GIFT DAY
Sunday 12th December
The Gift Day has now been fixed for Sunday 12 December 2021 after church in the Morton Hall from 11.30 to 1.00 pm. Please note this in your diary and come along for some light refreshments… and try out our new card payment system!
St John’s has been badly affected financially by Covid 19 with sharply reduced letting income and a fall in the weekly offerings. But the aim is to make the Gift Day a community Christmas thanksgiving social event for members, friends and hall users. All the organisations will be invited. Some will not feel ready to mix in close contact yet so the social side is, obviously, discretionary. You may prefer to make a contribution on the day and then leave or contribute by bank transfer (or cheque) to the Church any time. Bank details are given below.
Help is needed for the catering on the day. This will be mince-pies and a glass of wine or soft drink so hopefully not too onerous. Can you help? Please will you let Andy Clare know if you are able to do this.
Any donations should be either online by ACS transfer to St John’s URC Orpington at CAF Bank, Sort code:40 52 40 a/c: 00020854 or by cheque made payable to “St Johns United Reformed Church Orpington” or contact the Treasurer by email at email@example.com.
