District Synod, 16 September 2017

This is a reminder that the South Beds Circuit are hosting Synod at Harlington Upper School on 16 September.  To help the event run smoothly we would really appreciate it if we could have a couple of volunteers from each of the churches to assist us on the day itself.  There is no need to be there all day - only for the duration of the task.

Before 8.30 am and sometime after lunch

Help is required to put up direction signs from the station and motorway directing people to the Upper School.  Perhaps there are volunteers from Harlington and Toddington who are familiar with the area that could assist us with this task?  It would be helpful if the same team of people who put up the signs could take them down sometime after lunch.  


8.30 until around 10.30 

Volunteers are required to:

Help set up the venue

Help with car parking  - please bring high visibility jackets if you have them 

Help with coffee and clearing up afterwards

Meet and greet people and direct them to the right place


Approx 11.30 to 2.30  tbc

Volunteers are required:

To prepare and serve drinks and soup at lunchtime

Direct people to workshops/toilets/eating areas


2.30 - 4.30

Synod ends at 3.00pm.  Volunteers are required:

To serve cakes and tea 

Help with the clearing up


Sally Jones, Senior Circuit Steward is coordinating the volunteer team and so it would be helpful if she could know who might be able to help and what task they would like to do. Her contact details are:  mrssallyjones56@gmail.com  or she can be contacted on 01582 423745. Sally will be at the welcome service for Eric Mustafa and Seung-Wook Jung on 4 September if anyone would like to talk to her about volunteering.

In addition to volunteers, we would also welcome cake donations for the tea.  If you are able to provide a cake, can you please let me know.
