Passover Meal  - Maundy Thursday, 29th March, 7pm,
Compton Dundon village hall.
David Hatrey will be leading this; there are sign up sheets at the back of the churches.
Prayer for revival - Prayer Room on Monday afternoons 2.00 - 3.00pm. 
Our country needs revival; there is a generation growing up who have barely heard the name of Jesus.  Please come and intercede for our nation and our families. The Hebridean Revival began when two elderly ladies met to consistently pray.

Electoral Roll – Street
This will be closed for revision between 2nd and 5th April.  If you would like to be added to the roll, please complete a form (found at the back of the churches) and return it to me. Thanks, Sonia Beaty.
Walton parking space needed
My friend’s son is moving to Walton and needs somewhere to park his car. He is a single parent and his 2 small daughters live with him during the week. Do you have a suitable parking place for his small car. It would be practical if it was Walton Gateway end of village. If you can help, please contact me on 01278 723616/ Thanks, Pauline.
Can you help, please?
Kid’s church at Walton is held on a Monday between 3.30pm and 5pm.  My toast maker is no longer able to attend so I need someone to help with this.  The children arrive from school at about 3.30pm so the new helper would need to have everything set up and ready to go as they arrive.  You would only need to be at the church from 3.15pm to 4pm but would be welcome to stay for the whole session if you wish.  This is a necessary and valuable part of the afternoon and works best when not manned by a mum who is trying to supervise their own children. Please contact me if you would like more information, or think that you would be able to help me.  Thanks, Sonia. ( / 01458 442966)
Altar Frontal – Street Parish Church
Do you enjoy sewing? Do you know anyone who sews?
I am putting together a working party to create a new Altar Frontal for the Parish Church.  If you are interested or know someone who might be able to help, please contact me. Thanks, Diane Gray. 01458 446395
