New Vacancy: CTiN&D Secretary

CTiNaD secretary
CTiN&D are looking for a volunteer to fill the post of Secretary. Kirsty, the current secretary will be moving away at the end of July. The role consists of e-mailing out a request for agenda items before meetings, putting together the agenda and sending them together with any reports out in advance of the Exec and Reps meetings. The secretary then takes the minutes and circulates them out after the meetings. In between meetings, there are some occasions when requests for information or messages between church leaders need to be emailed.

If you are interested in helping in this way, please speak to Hazel.

New Relationships and Sex Education

In September 2020, the law on sex education in schools in England changed. The law and Government guidance give opportunities for Christian parents to engage constructively with schools, both to protect their own children and to encourage schools to adopt a positive approach which will benefit all.
To help parents navigate this minefield, the Christian Institute has produced Relationships and Sex Education: A guide for Christian parents in England. A couple of hard copies of this are available at the church if you would like one.

Return to the church building

Return to the church building
A quick reminder of the set-up for Sunday mornings. Please wear a face mask (properly), sanitise your hands, log your arrival for track and trace, and continue to practise social distancing. Please bring your own Bible, if you have one, and as it is likely to be a bit drafty with the windows open, wrap up warm. We can't yet serve tea and coffee after the service, and it's important to book ahead so you can be assigned a seat at an appropriate distance from people not in your bubble. To book your places, please email info@southfieldchurch.org.

If you are not able to join us in person just yet, the services will continue to be live-streamed and recorded. To connect to the live-streamed services, click on the 'Southfield Church Live' logo on the home page of the website. Following the service, we can then all connect to talk afterwards on the Zoom link, which again is on the website.

For now, the only activities in the church building will be the Sunday morning service and Foodbank (Fridays 12:30 - 2:30pm).
