Emergency Contact Details -- Vestry has decided that it would be helpful to have a register of emergency contact details for everyone. Please complete the yellow form available in the church foyer, and return to the labelled box so that the register can be prepared. It will be kept securely in the church office.
Upper Hutt Foodbank -- The following items would be appreciated when you are next doing the shopping:  tinned fruit, biscuits, jam, peanut butter, salt, toilet rolls, cooking oil and tinned corn.

Mission to Seafarers -- It may be spring but knitted beanies (scarves too) are in real demand.  Please keep those knitting needles/crochet hooks moving and think of those seafarers who spend long periods at sea and far from home. Yarn is available in the church foyer for this ministry.
