Nepal Earthquake Appeal
The devastating earthquake that hit Nepal and parts of India has
killed more than 2,000 people, and many more lives hang in the balance.
Entire communities have been ravaged by the earthquake, which measured
7.8 on the Richter scale. Some 6.6 million people are affected, with the
death toll set to rise. Unconfirmed reports suggest that 80% of homes
have collapsed near the epicentre, less than 50 miles from Kathmandu.
Hospitals are overwhelmed.
Because of the risk of further aftershocks, people can’t even shelter in any buildings that are still standing. Thousands are living out in the open.
People are shocked and frightened. They need emergency shelter, food and clean drinking water, clothes and some of the basics, like blankets and hygiene kits. We have to help them now. (Taken from the Christian Aid UK website.)

Earth Day Sunday at Saint Paul's
The Saint Paul's Sunday Club delighted the 10:30 congregation on Sunday 19th April with a lively celebration of Earth Day Sunday which the Club helped organise and lead. Among other things, the children and young people of our church gave the Earth Day Sunday Sermon, a three part message celebrating God's Creation, the "Eco-Crucifixion" -- damage we have done to God's Creation; and the "Eco-Resurrection" -- how our efforts at recycling and other green endeavours are leading to a renewal of the beautiful world God created. The Sunday Club also distributed sacks with bulbs and a bit of earth, to everyone attending the service, for spring planting that were blessed at the close of the service.
Positive Spirit Reigns at the AGM
A very positive Spirit and unity of purpose characterised the annual meetings of the Saint Paul's Association and Chaplaincy on Sunday 12th April 2015. Despite one solitary (an predictable) voice of discord, the meeting moved swiftly through its agenda few interruptions other than to applaud the members of the Church Committee and the accomplishments of the previous year of activity.
