Teresia's last Sunday is February 10th. Since she arrived here seven years ago she has made a huge contribution to the life of our benefice. She will be greatly missed by so many of us, and we want to celebrate all that she has achieved with us. On February 10th she will preach at her final services at 9.30am at Holy Trinity and 11.15am at Great Hampden. Following that SEARCH will be catering a lunch in Teresia's honour in Holy Trinity, from 12.30pm. If you'd like to come to that you will need to book a ticket, as there will be a limit on numbers. Tickets will be available in either church from January 13 or via email from the office from January 14. We will be asking for donations of about £5-£7 per head to cover costs on the day. Then, at about 2pm, everyone is invited to gather in Holy Trinity for a celebratory drink, speeches and a presentation to send Teresia on her way, finishing around 3pm.
You can contribute to a collection for Teresia, to say thank you to her and to help her and Mattias as they settle into their new home. Donations of cash or cheque can be made in an envelope clearly marked “TERESIA”. Please give them to the clergy, a warden or a treasurer at either church. You can also make a donation electronically to Holy Trinity PCC, at TSB Bank sort code 30-93-67, account number 00085332, referencing the payment “TERESIA”.
Please make your donation and get your lunch ticket before Sunday February 3rd, so we know how many to cater for and can buy Teresia a suitable leaving gift.
