Saturday 9th March – Saturday 16th March 2024

ST.THOMAS MORE, BEXLEYHEATH. Notices & Schedule.

MARCH IS THE MONTH OF ST. JOSEPH

Fourth week of Lent

 

URGENT REPAIRS NEEDED. Our church guttering needs to be replaced and some roofing repaired. This also applies to an area of the Church Hall.  Water is getting into the brickwork, causing damage inside which is now visible, two years after the church was decorated. We need to fix this before the damage becomes irreparable. Having been given quotations, we need your donations to raise about £10,000 for this work. Afterwards, we will also need to repair the damage to the walls and interior decorations.  Please make your donations on line ref ROOF REPAIRS or you can pay by contactless or place your donation in an envelope, also marking it ‘Roof Repairs’.

This would remove all sanctions in relation to a woman performing her own abortion, effectively allowing abortion pills to be taken up to the point of natural birth. Please handwrite the letter, if possible, as this shows your commitment and takes up physical space on their desk. For more information, please visit the SPUC website. This could be debated by MP's as early as the 4th of March.
