Return of Kilombero Rice!: Following a break over lockdown, Fair Trade products are returning to SABC! In the next few weeks a small Fair Trade corner will pop up in the fellowship room, with Kilombero rice being the main focus. If you remember, one sack of rice (which is 90 packs) pays for a child to be educated at secondary school in Malawi for 1 year. And it’s delicious high quality rice too. As a church we have completed the rice challenge 3 times! To buy anything, please help yourself & put payment into the church offering (cash or card). Prices will be displayed, but the rice has had to go up in price to £3.50. If you don’t have card or cash on you, just put it in next week. 

If you have registered as a potential sponsor for a Ukrainian refugee, or wish to help refugees accommodated locally in other practical ways (e.g. befriending, help with English) please let Jane Harrison know, or email Thank you.

Christian Summer Camp, Romania (3 places now covered): This summer, as in previous years, Mihai hopes to take 10 teenagers, some not in any church, for a 4-day Christian camp. Each place costs £45. Many of the children live in difficult circumstances & this is a wonderful way to witness to them. Mihai does follow-up, through sports /community meetings. If you wish to support this outreach please contact Matthew Thornton ( or Allyson McGregor. Thank you.

The Community Hub Summer Fayre, 23rd July: On 23rd July the Hub will be holding its annual Summer Fayre. If anyone has ‘as new’/unused gifts or special items (last year a once used Christmas tree/ ‘old’ paintings – but not clothing nor bric-a-brac please) which they would like to donate, or if the bakers of the church would pledge to bake for the event (ingredient/heating costs refunded by a donor) it will be very gratefully received! All proceeds from the stall go direct to the Hub. Thank you all! Allyson McGregor.

Bags to Calarasi, Romania: Mihai says thank you all so much for the donations received for the June van shipment, amongst which was a Play Station 2+3, a new wedding dress, small trampoline & excellent quality adult & children’s clothes/shoes: a total of 542kgs (50 bags/boxes) Thank you for your generosity!
