Street Facebook page

It would be really great if Street had a facebook page where all information about news and events can be shared (similar to the one Walton has). If you would like to set this up and administer it, please contact Sonia Beaty.  (see HTC, Walton, Somerset on facebook for inspiritation)

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)

There will be a choice of soups. No charge for the lunch, but there will be an opportunity to make a donation to Tearfund.

Letter from Mfuwe parish
Dear Jane, and friends in Street
I hope and trust you are all fine that side of the world.
Now concerning Mfuwe parish. The parish was given its status in 2010 when it was separated from Masumba.
Mfuwe parish is a rural parish within Mambwe district which north- west of our province.
The parish has seven congregations whose Christians are subsistence farmers except for the parish centre ( St. Agnes) where some Christians work in the lodges. We also have the following church groups which are very influential and their membership:
- Ladies groups, Mother's Union: 162; St. Veronica: 158,
- Young Family: 35,
- Anglican Men' s Union: 5,
- Lay readers: 15.
We also have youth groups which are the choir, Sunday school, Altar servers, Praise Team, Youth fellowship, Boy' s Brigade and Girl's Brigade.
The parish is growing rapidly both numerically and spiritually. This is evident in that most buildings built five years ago can't contain their members.
The parish is situated near South Luangwa National Park such that we co- exist with wild animals. There is usually man- animal conflicts but we do co- exist anyway.
We are very delighted to have you as our link parish. We have a lot to share of what God has done and is still doing in his church. We shall keep on sharing these great things
Please pass our regard to our beloved there.
Wish you a happy Easter.
Ven. Phillip Mwale.
