Passover Seder (6:00pm, Sunday 14th April) On Palm Sunday, 14th April, instead of the usual evening service, St John’s will be hosting a Passover Seder showing the link between Jewish tradition and Christ’s Last Passover meal, which will be led by Stephen and Deborah Pacht. All are welcome to come along – please be thinking and praying about friends you might want to invite (please let the Office know if you’re bringing any guests).
Please let Kerry know if you can help at all with setting up, serving, or clearing up on the day.
Easter Holiday Club 2019 (9:30am to 12:30pm, Monday 15th to Thursday 18th April) Is for all primary school aged children from Reception to Year 6. Please note the following:
1) Register: reserve your child’s free place online NOW! (Places are filling up quickly so please don’t leave it to the last minute.)
2) Help: please let David Rue know if you are able to help in any way – you don’t have to commit to the full week, if you can do one or two days that would also be great.
3) Bring: please bring large ‘bottle shaped’ plastic water/soft drink bottles (empty but with lids) and empty cereal boxes to church this Sunday, 7th April or on Monday 8th April at the latest.
Crafting preparation will start in the undercroft on Monday at 10:30am – all welcome but ideally suited to teens and adults; primary age children should only attend with an adult. Please text Belinda (07976 255637) to let her know you’re coming!

Book Recommendations! The St John’s online bookstall at 10ofthose.com has been updated. If you have started the New Testament reading scheme, you may find it helpful to have alongside you a copy of “The Message of the New Testament” by Mark Dever, which has a sermon-length summary of each book. You’ll find this and a number of other recommended books at https://www.10ofthose.com/uk/partners/sjdh or via the 10ofthose icon on our website.
