Here are a few pictures from the Towel Ministry work day on 12th August. If you want to know more about towel ministry please contact Frank or Judy Thanks to everyone who works so hard to help.

What is Towel Ministry?

Leading with the “towel” is enabling people to make decisions and to pursue their God given dreams, and celebrating their accomplishments. Leading with the “towel” means serving those I lead not so that they will serve me, but so that they will serve others.

Towel Ministry evolved and began over 30 years ago by Deacon Cris Greer and Fr Gene McDowell as a response to the need in communities for housing improvements, repairs and maintenance for elderly or disabled folks.

After COVID everyone wanted Coffee Hour back but only a few people ever volunteer to make it happen. Could you be the solution?

It can be a bit daunting if you have never done anything like this before. Current hosts would be very happy to "apprentice" you if you are nervous about jumping straight in.

If you are worried about not providing food which is "good enough", please don't. Easier said than done -right? We have some people who are very talented bakers - if you are not why not think about doing something a bit different - or you can use store bought. If you find even that difficult please ask about helping and using Church supplies for food. We always have things in reserve in the freezer.

People are genuinely grateful to have Coffee Hour - you can even team up with another person if you are not wanting to do it on your own. Perhaps you are great at making things look nice and cleaning up but not good with food - find someone who is - work together.

The unfortunate thing is that our hosts are having to work really hard at the moment and it is not fun for them any more. They all love doing it but having to do it too often burns people out. Coffee Hour simply cannot exist unless as many people as possible take a turn.

Please email Janet if you want to know more, or you can just take the leap and sign up in the Narthex. If you have zero idea what you are doing - ask for help. Our experienced volunteers know that getting you up and running means less work in the long run.

Thank you for considering this as an offering to Redeemer.

Festivals and Celebrations

Join the Team

Festivals and Celebrations form a large part of our life together at Redeemer and they are often accompanied by meals and other activities.

We usually schedule events a year out at about this time of year. The things listed below are things we have done before, would like to do again and some need a coordinator.

Please think about whether you can coordinate an event. How things have been done is not set in stone so you can make events your own. We are shelving the name “Parish Life” whilst we reorganize. This is to help you all use your imagination, just because it has been a way, does not mean it has to be. You will be able to recruit a team to help you so you are not doing everything on your own.

There are plenty of other things happening, the ones below are just the things which have been "Parish Life" up until now.

September 10th

Coordinators Grace France and Helen Whitby

What you need to do: Bring toppings

October 8th

Coordinators: Donna Logan and Mary Howe

What you need to do: decide whether you want to enter a chili and bring it along in a crockpot. No formal entry. No crockpot - please ask.

November 26th

Coordinator: Spirituality Team

What you need to do: Come along and make a wreath.

February 14th 2024

Coordinator: Noone yet - this is a big event and needs a team.

March 31st 2024

Coordinator: You???

This can be a big deal or it can be a slightly fancier Coffee Hour which is what we did this year. It is up to the coordinators team to decide. This is a bring and share.

May 19th 2024

Coordination team: you???

This is a bring and share but needs folks to decorate and organize drinks etc.

Want to volunteer - email us. You can say in the email whether you would like to lead a team or be a part of one.

Thanks all. These events can only run if we get volunteers and there is not one person doing it all any more.
