Diocesan Call to Pray and Give – 12th - 29th November

Today we shall be receiving these special gifts during our worship at 8.30 am and 10.45 am. If you have not been able to attend church today and would like someone to collect your envelope, please let us know. Alternatively you can pop it through the Vicarage letter box. The total amount gifted will be announced next Sunday.

Christmas Services

We are still limited to what we can offer over the Christmas period. Congregational singing inside is still to be avoided and we must remain socially distanced from one another. We are prayerfully considering what is possible and what is safe and will announce dates on this sheet next Sunday.

Envelope Christmas raffle

This will be drawn on Sunday December 20th. There is still time to bring your envelopes to church. We would also appreciate any raffle prizes – these can be brought into church whenever we are open. Please give them to the church sitters on duty to store safely.

100 Club

This week’s winners are Alma Wright, Dorothy Warren and Beryl Clarkson

Please continue to pray

…… for Alan Mather, and the families of all those who are to be laid to rest this coming week.
