Frauen anderer Herkunft, anderen Sprachen/Women from other countries and speaking different languages
This group was formed several years ago and brings together women from other countries who, like we at St. Catherine’s, come together to worship here in Stuttgart . For many years we celebrated Advent together but unfortunately we had to cancel the last two meetings due to Covid. So instead of celebrating Advent we are now planning to celebrate Easter, as you can see from the invitation. So please make a note of the date, Friday, 22nd April 2022 from 4 pm until 6 pm in the Parish Centre of the Friedenskirche. For more information do get in touch. Alison email@example.com

Julie F and Alison are planning the „Cream Teas“ at the Open Chuurch event on Saturday, 30th April – which will also include a book sale.
We will be providing traditional teas: scones, sponge cakes, muffins, biscuits, sandwiches in the Anglican Centre and would be grateful for the following: obviously, first and foremost, offers of home-baked produce and offers of help for setting up and serving. We are also asking for the loan of traditional, dainty china tea-services, frilly table cloths and three-tiered cake stands (etageres) Please contact Alison under the following e-mail address: email@example.com to get involved.
For those with Bibliophile friends a “save the date” flier for the BookSale part of Open Church is available here. Please start to share.
