CTNA CHRISTMAS DAY LUNCH
FOR THOSE ON THEIR OWN
Every year CTNA provides a Christmas Day Lunch at St. Georges Church Hall
WE STILL URGENTLY
- Drivers to bring guests to St. George’s Church Hall from 10am and return them home from 3.15pm. If the drivers and their family would like to spend the day with us too, that would be great.
- Entertainers for 10-15 minutes between 11 to 12.45pm, singing, playing music, telling a funny story, engaging the guests in a fun quiz or something they can join in with.
- A few more volunteers to be companions in the morning and clear up in the kitchen after lunch (Kitchen 2 Team)
CHRISTMAS EVE (10am to 12noon)
- Helpers to set up the tables and decorate the Hall and tree. It would be great if some men could come at 10am just to put out the tables and chairs.

I’m a trustee of COINS and in that role I take the leadership(apart from being part of the general decision making process) to do with staffing; recruitment and interviewing, dealing with any issues, and visiting volunteers when they are running clubs; I meet with Tania for support and appraisal once a term; I take on the writing of policy and practice documents; I do some visiting of local churches to thank them for their support or to drum up interest… That’s the sort of thing. Sometimes it feels like a huge responsibility to be employing people especially when the money gets low. We have a really strong Leadership Team; it’s a bit scary when good people leave ——-WE DO NEED A TREASURER. FOR MORE DETAILS PLEASE CONTACT LIZ on 01635 48660
We are a listening ear and a friendly face to the retail sector within Newbury town Centre. We go out on Thursday to Parkway, Kennet Centre, Market Place and the High Street. Showing friendship to the shop managers, staff and security staff, being open to when they want to talk and most of all listening. It is a lovely way to engage with new people and to walk with them in their life challenges and celebrations. THEY ASK THE QUESTIONS!!

Street Pastors: Julie Phillips says;
Street Pastors is an Inter-denominational church response to urban problems, engaging with people in their own communities, to care, listen, and dialogue. It’s designed to give to give Christians the tools to be effective expressions of God’s love and through the dedication of time and love become bridge-builders in today’s society. There are four in our team plus three prayer pastors. Some folks need sleeping bags, some are upset. We give them Coffee. We recently helped a young woman who was sick, giving her wet wipes, and water.
