Electoral Roll Update

A completely new Electoral Roll needs to be prepared this year (2019), so please remember to complete and return an Electoral Roll application form as soon as you can to the church office, or pop in the church office box in the foyer.

The Electoral Roll is the basic list maintained in every parish of all those entitled to vote on elections within the Church of England. Those entitled to have their names on this roll have to be 16 years of age or more and they must reside in the relevant parish or be regular worshippers in church whose roll they wish to join. It does not cost you anything, or directly affect the Parish contributions to the Diocese.

Christmas Shopping Day for Ekisa

Every year since Ekisa was founded, we have showed the children how much we care for them by sending a personal Christmas gift to each of the children who live in the residential home.

 

We have done this with the generous help of Lighthouse Toys in Histon, in addition to the gifts we send, Lighthouse Toys also send gifts, toys and educational supplies to be used in the home and school.

This year Lighthouse Toys have already sent an individual, personal gift to every child who lives in the Ekisa home, (Emily has taken these back with her.)

This gives us the opportunity to bless the children who attend the Ekisa Academy with some new toys and educational equipment, and those who live in the home to have some new toys to play with.

Before going back to Uganda Emily visited Lighthouse Toys and created a ‘wish list’ of items, these start from under £5 .

Everyone is invited to come along to Lighthouse Toys, High Street, Histon on Saturday 15th Dec, between 9am – 5pm to view Emily’s wish list and buy something to bless the children at Ekisa.

If you are unable to come along but would like to contribute then you can give a donation to Michelle Peters or hand into the office marked ‘Ekisa shopping day’.
