A message from Sue:
Last Sunday it was good to welcome Derek and Ruth Brough from St James Anglican Chaplaincy on the Island of Fuerteventura to Church to collect the next instalment of knitting for the refugees and poorer Spanish families on the island. Here they are collecting the bags – there is the same quantity again at the Vicarage! They hope to take that over when they next visit the UK. Please keep knitting as there are many refugees who still make the perilous journey across the sea to the Canary Islands and then really feel the cold! (Did you know it is about 25° – 27° in the winter!)
Next Sunday, 3 October, as we come to the last of our series looking at the Letter of James, we will have a simple Harvest Communion service at 10am, accessible by people of any age. Please invite your family, friends, and neighbours to this opportunity to share the goodness of God to all his people. We will be collecting items for the food bank as always, and any fresh items that might be used to decorate the church can be shared after the service.
I also wanted to let you know that in the middle of October there will be a slight change of service pattern, due to clergy availability: on 10 October our 8.30am service will be a Book of Common Prayer: Morning Prayer, on 17 October the 10am service will be Morning Worship and on 24 October the 10am service will be Common Worship: Holy Communion. All other services remain in the usual pattern.
With every blessing for you and those whom you love and pray for this week.
