Thur 26 May

7.30 pm - 9.00 pm

Places and how they can enhance our faith will be the continuing topic of discussion at 4 Victoria Road on Thursday 26th May (7.30 – 9.00 pm). Think about forests and fields, buildings and beaches; where, and why, do you find God is closest? If you would like to join the conversation you will be warmly welcomed, please call 01722 322791.

Grapevine meets on Wednesday 25th May. We meet in St Thomas’s House at 7.45pm for an 8.00 pm start to hear about the work of ‘Serve On’. This is a humanitarian assistance and disaster response charity which works at home and abroad. Recent examples of their involvement are in Nepal following the devastating earthquake and, more recently, the Lake District during the floods. Our speaker, Craig Elsdon, is the leader of the local branch of ‘Serve On’. As always we welcome new members – contact John Foster (tel. 710426) for further information.

Sun 5 Jun

10.15 am - 6.00 pm

Southampton Interfaith Walk for Peace. A group from St Thomas’s will be travelling to Southampton to participate in this annual event which enables people of different faiths to walk around the centre of the city together to witness to their harmonious relationships and their desire for peace in our world.  We will visit the synagogue, the Nanaksar Gurdwara (Sikh temple) where we will be given lunch, the Medina Mosque and St Mary’s  Church. We will leave straight after the 10.15 service and be back in Salisbury by 6pm.  Transport will be co-ordinated and there will be no cost apart from that of travelling to Southampton. You can see more about the event at: http://www.southampton-faiths.org/#!events/c70d. If you would like to join us please sign the list on the church notice board.

Sun 19 Jun

 

The Sudan Garden Party is on Sunday 19th June, in the Bishop's Garden and once again St Thomas's is organising its famous Bottle Tombola Stall. However to do this we shall require lots and lots of bottles of all kinds. Please might you be able to donate a bottle of wine, a fizzy drink or three, tomato ketchup, a bottle of cider or beer ... anything like that for the stall? We have been very successful in recent years and we would love to raise even more this year. Please could you bring your bottles into church? There will be a box in the People Vestry for your most generous donations. Thank you so much in advance. Jonathan

St. Thomas's will join the national celebrations for our Queen's official 90th birthday with special cakes after the 10.15 Eucharist on Sunday June 12th. If you could bake and create a suitably decorated cake / cup cakes / muffins (sweet or savoury) please sign the list on the board.
