Donations are being collected at Almuñécar by Michael Bacon and there is a box at the back of church in Nerja.
If you are a UK taxpayer, then your collection and any other donations to the Church can be gift Aided. This increases substantially the value of your gift to the Church, at no additional cost to yourself. Please use a yellow envelope which can be found at the back of Church.

EL CAMINO 2018 A small group of us from the Chaplaincy will be working at one of the albergues (small guest houses) on El Camino Francés this summer. The albergue is run by Agape, an evangelical group working out of Granada University (amongst other places) here in Spain. Sam, Rebekah and their 3 children and Pilar and I shall be there from Sunday, 12th August until Sunday 19th August. The albergue is situated 73 kms from Santiago de Compostela. The full address is: La Fuente del Peregrino, Ligonde no4, Ligonde, 27568 Monterroso, Lugo, Galicia. If you, or someone you know, is doing el Camino this summer, please pass this information on to them. As ever, an Anglican presence is always important!
There will be a Church Council Meeting on Wednesday, 23rd May. This will be held as usual in the Church Shop and will start at 2.30 pm. It is important that we have a full meeting to begin the new year, following the Annual Meeting two weeks ago.
