Friends of St Michael’s Church, Lavendon 100 Club
Valuable funds raised by this 100 Club are used by the Parochial Church Council for the running of and maintaining of the fabric and structure of our historic church.
By joining the Club you can help running the church, and maintaining the fabric as well as having a chance to win cash prizes every month! The Friends of St Michael’s 100 Club is a private lottery and is open to all residents of the parish of Lavendon and the surrounding area, their family and friends. As a private lottery you have to be invited to join, you will be allocated a number and your tickets are not transferable. You have to be over 16 to join. The subscription will be £5 per month per number (£60 per annum), paid in advance, preferably by Standing Order on a basis of a minimum period of twelve months.
Each month at the Coffee Morning in the church (on the second Monday of the month) there will be draw for 50% of the income. This amount will be divided between 3 lucky winners. For example, if we have 100 members (our aim) the income for that month will be £500 and 50% will be used for the prize fund i.e. £250 split into three prizes.
1st prize £125 (if 100 members)
2nd prize £75 (if 100 members)
3rd prize £50 (if 100 members)
The more people who buy a subscription – the higher the prize money!
You may have ( and are encouraged to do so ) more than one number per month.

Festival of Christmas Trees
Our Festival of Christmas Trees will take place from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th December.
The festival will start our celebration of Christmas within our community with light refreshments to welcome visitors to our village church.
We very much hope that you will display a decorated tree. The tree can be any size, shape or colour (as long as it can get through the church door!); traditional or non-traditional; real or artificial as long as it conveys a Christmas tree.
Free your imagination! It can represent your group or organization or can be an entry by an individual, family or group of friends – the more the merrier.
The church will be open on 9th and 10th December for setting up your display,
Please contact Rod on 01234 713374 or Ruth@joruchel.plus.com to register your tree or if you have any queries.
All proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the church.
