Safeguarding at St John's
Did you know that we have a team of people at St John's who are involved in keeping the children and vulnerable adults safe? Whilst the PCC have overall responsibility, they appointed Mark Lynch and Louise Gregory to receive any disclosures (historical or new), Sue Wright to act as Children's Champion and Sheila Oliver to act as our Vulnerable Adults Champion. Sue and Sheila help to ensure that the children and vulnerable adults have someone who is mindful of their needs.
Contact numbers for Mark and Louise are listed on our weekly pew sheet. There are also posters in the Church and Church House which provide various telephone numbers of where help can be obtained if required. For more information on Safeguarding at St John's please Click Here.
2020 Diocesan Lent Appeal
We plan to support the 2020 Lent Appeal called "Wheels for Climate Change Emergencies". The money will be distributed equally between the Dioceses of Angola and Mozambique to help them replace vehicles that were purchased in 2012 as they are no longer fit for purpose. This practical assistance will enable the Bishops of Angola and Mozambique to continue to provide much-needed pastoral support in a practical way as they travel around their Diocese.
We have learned that the foodbank is full (currently) and have been asked to stop donating food for the time being. They would grateful to receive financial donations instead of food, as they have rent to pay on their commercial unit in Wealdstone. hppts://donate.giveasyoulive.com/donate?cid=184241#1
