New Year round up

Sorry its been so long since I last wrote - I blame Christmas, and then January, and now I've run out of people to pass the buck to, so I guess I better write it!

Events -
Fantastic Christmas Concert as ever  - 250 people jammed into the church, raising £1500, but also a whole of lot of joy! What will it be like next year, with heating and chairs!!

Coming up on Saturday February 14th - the iPad Raffle and World Record Breaking attempts! Please join us from 11am, raffle draw at 12 noon. If you'd like a ticket and a good chance to win a prize then contact Ben Thornton who would be very happy to sell you 1 or 5 or more!

Building  -
Drawings are being finalised, and next month we will be inviting companies to tender for the work. We need to start in April in order to be ready by September!

Legal things -
The Diocese is drawing up leases for Bemerton Community Group and the PCC to negotiate with and sign, and then the school will have a separate licence with Bem Com.

Fundraising -
We're 3/4's of the way there! Amazing! £300,000 is a fantastic sum. If you know of anyone with the last £100,000 to spare, please let us know. Its painful to get so close and still be short. We will be calling on those of you made pledges of money in the next few months too, so expect a letter.

Answers to Prayer -
We've been having prayer nights for SJP (St.John's Place) on the 4th Tuesday at 7:30pm in St.Andrews, and you're very welcome to join us. Since we prayed we've got planning permission, new helpers, someone to do PR - it looks like prayer really does work (but I would say that, I'm a vicar!).
