20th Anniversary Service We will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Springfield with a special service on the 18th March. We are delighted to be having the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, coming to help us celebrate. Rowan Williams is a gifted preacher and a big supporter of Fresh Expressions churches (such as Springfield). Note: Due to limitations on space, please focus on inviting people on the fringe and non-Christians, rather than friends from other churches. There are invitations that you can collect to give your friends available at the Welcome Desk today.

The Bishop of Southwark, Christopher Chessun, is preaching and presiding at our communion service at Wallington Girls School this morning. One of Bishop Christopher’s passions is mission and in order to help the diocese and churches to engage with this, he has asked every church in the diocese to fill in a ‘Signs of Growth’ questionnaire which you should find on your tables this morning. This needs to be filled in before you leave today: do ask Sue or Nigel after the service if you have any questions on how to fill some bits in, then put the completed questionnaires in the box by the door before you go. Thank you.
