S-CLUB
Prize Giving takes place this morning and gives us the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of all the children in our Sunday School in Ballymore and to thank the leaders for their hard work behind the scenes. S-Club will meet on Sunday 10th and Sunday 24th June before finishing for the summer. It will then recommence on Sunday 9th September. Anyone who would be willing to help with S-Club should speak to Wendy or the Rector as soon as possible to enable the Access NI paperwork to be completed in advance of the new season. Thanks.

CLARE PARISH CHURCH
Clare will be celebrating the refurbishment of their Church building next Sunday evening with a special Service at 7pm. Everyone welcome.

FAMILY INFORMATION FORMS
Back in September 2015 we started the massive task of updating our Parish database and since then we have tried to contact all our parishioners to make sure that we have the most up to date and accurate contact details for them. There are still a number of Family Information Forms which have not been returned. Recently we sent out a letter to all those households that had not yet returned a form. Due to the new General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force on 25th May we need signed Family Information Forms for everyone associated with the Parish in order to allow us to hold your details within the Parish Registers. Any information held by the Parish will be for Parish use only and will not be shared with any other organisation. Any outstanding forms need to be returned as soon as possible. If a form is not returned we will have to assume that you do not wish to be on our Parish list and your name will be removed, therefore it is vitally important to complete the paperwork. Forms can be returned to the Churchwardens or any member of the Select Vestry. Thanks.

FLOWER LIST FOR MAY

SICK & BEREAVED
If you know of any parishioners who have been unwell recently, bereaved or who would appreciate a home visit please let the Rector know.
