Parish Annual Report 2017

AGM Agenda

Paper copies of the Annual Report are available on request from the Parish Office.

 

SVP Awareness Month

September is SVP awareness month and the theme this year is “Welcoming the Stranger”. Over the past few weeks we have seen how the SVP works with those who are homeless, grieving, lonely and hungry.

Volunteers, motivated by their faith, seek and find those in need and offer them sincere friendship as well as practical and personal help. Last year the SVP supported 78,748 individuals and families across the UK. 8,029 full members made 445,527 visits, giving material assistance such as food or transport on 97,665 occasions – this includes the work carried out by our local district. Read more about “Our Work in 2015/16” or contact the Parish Office to find out more about the work of the SVP here in St Joseph’s.

Next weekend there will be an appeal and second collection at all Masses. If you are a taxpayer, please use one of the Gift Aid envelopes provided.

 

ALPHA

Explore the Christian faith at an Alpha course - a talk, ask questions, share your thoughts. Bring a friend or neighbour who maybe interested in the Christian faith. An inter-church Alpha course starts with an introductory dinner on Monday, 18 September at the Breadhouse in Market Place, Chalfont St Peter at 7.45pm. It continues on Monday evenings until 4 December.

Our 24-7 Prayer Room in the centre of Chalfont St Peter is open to everyone. This prayer space has been formed by local churches for the local community. A place to seek God, to pour out our hearts in intercession for our community, our churches and our world.
