If you plan to come along to the Toy service and to bring gifts of toys for the children, please can we ask you to wrap the gifts and to put a label on stating boy or girl and approximate age the gift is suitable for. This is helpful for those handing the gifts out.
This is happening this coming Saturday in the courtyard and meeting hall at St Johns Church Deryneia . There will be stalls with various goodies and plants for sale, refreshments all day, raffles and of course The Piano Marathon from 9am till 5 pm. Peter Day is the Piano man " wonder if anyone can request music he cannot play"? Plus anyone who sponsors Peter or buys refreshments will be entered into a draw for a basket of Christmas groceries. So come along and join in the fun , everyone is welcome.
Directions to St Johns:- Take the Freneros Road out of Deryneia and just past the 2 euro shop turn left and then almost immediately right, travel down this lane past fields for about a mile and you will see St Johns on the right which is hosted in the beautiful white Orthodox Church of St Fanourios located next to Deryneia cemetary. There is plenty of parking just through the gates.
We are looking forward to meeting you.
