News and Events

VOLUNTEER POSY MAKERS!
As we rapidly approach Mothering Sunday (March 31st), we need some volunteers to make posies for that day. Please put your names down on the Volunteers’ Sheet as you leave church in Nerja this Sunday…your reward will be great, at least in the world to come, if not this one!
JO & BILL BURKEY
As many of you know, Bill & Jo will be moving back to the UK at the
beginning of next month (April 1st). They will be moving to a retirement
home in Odiham, Hampshire.
Having both been very actively involved in the church since arriving here
from Portugal in many different guises (Jo as organist and member of the
PCC, Bill as Church Warden, and then PCC member responsible for the
Electoral Roll and Safeguarding), we shall be making a collection for
them. There will be a basket available for your donations at the back of
church over the next 2 Sundays. A gift will then be purchased and
presented to them on the last Sunday of this month, health providing.

THE ELECTORAL ROLL

As many of you know, this year the Church Electoral Roll has to be renewed. This takes place every 6 years. In appliance with diocesan procedure, at the back of church you will find copies of all the most recent information on the privacy of the data that you give us when you fill in the enrolment form for inclusion on the new Church Electoral Roll. In order to become a member of the Electoral Roll you need to spend approximately 6 months of the year here in Spain.

Please take a form/s, fill in the details, and return it/them to either the Church Warden or the Chaplain by April 1st. The new Church Electoral Roll will be published on April 7th.

THE EUROPEAN ANGLICAN

Currently, the future of further editions is under discussion and I am afraid that there is no Autumn Edition available for distribution. For further information and copies of past editions that may be downloaded, contact: https://europe.anglican.org.

CHURCH SHOP HELPERS

Due to people returning to the UK and moving elsewhere, we are once again short of helpers in Church Shop. Please contact either Brian or Diane at the midday service in Nerja or alternatively call in at Church Shop itself and leave your details (address is on the back of the pew sheet). Your help will be gratefully received!
