RECRUITING FOR OUR NEW RECTOR
Four candidates have been shortlisted for interviews on 7th February.  They will be seen by our two church wardens, Sally Bowes and Jen Smith, the Bishop of Croydon and the Archdeacon of Reigate.  Please keep praying for the candidates, the interview panel and the whole selection process.
SERVE ON A TEAM!
We need help to man our services with welcome, sides, intercessions, AV, coffee, readings and setting up Communion (and musicians/singers).   Volunteering to join the welcomers/ sides or coffee team is a great way to get to know people if you are new and would like to be part of our serving congregation.  Talk to Sally Foxen or Jen Smith to find out more. sally.foxen@outlook.com
