'HAPPY DAYS' - PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
Contributions are now invited please. 'Happy Days' is the theme of our Photography Exhibition to be held at St Mary's Church, Riverhead on Saturday, 16 May 2015, from 9:00am to 6:00pm - and open to everyone. The actual subject and style are up to you, and the maximum size is A3; no frames. There will be four age-related categories: under 7, 7 to 11, 12 to 18, and adult. There is no application form; just telephone either the Vicar (01732 455736) or Margaret Nicholas (01732 457324) to arrange to deliver your photographs. You are asked to put your name, age if 18 or under, on the back; and also indicate if you wish to collect your photographs afterwards. There will be the chance to vote for the most popular photograph in each age category, but there will not be prizes as it is an exhibition and not a competition. Donations will be invited at the Exhibition, in support of Christian Aid. The closing date for entries is: Monday, 11 May 2015.

THINKING OF BEING CONFIRMED?

There will be separate sessions for young people and for adults who have not been confirmed and would like to receive Communion. If you think this is something you, or your son or daughter, would like to consider, please get in touch with the Revd. Martin.

We meet at Betty Gilbert's house for coffee at 10.00am, starting our study at 10.15am for one hour. This session's study will be taken from the Gospel of Mark.
