THANK YOU – To all who helped make Holy week and Easter a wonderful experience. With special thanks to Bishop Robert for guiding us your people through this week. Thank you all sacristans, servers, readers, choir, Flower Guild, Hospitality Committee, Colin and Christine our parish Administrator.

BISHOP MICHAEL – It is with great sadness that we were informed that Bishop Michael died peacefully at home on Monday evening April 17, following a special Easter weekend with all the family. May he rest in peace and rise in glory joining the communion of saints that have gone before him.

TRAIDCRAFT STALL - There will be a Traidcraft stall today after the 10am service. We shall be selling craft items and cards as well as the usual groceries and chocolate. Please do come along and support Traidcraft.

BIBLE READING FELLOWSHIP BOOKLETS - for May to August 2017 are in the pigeon holes. Included is a note about the annual payment which is now due. To start ordering any of the BFG materials or to have a look at what’s available please contact Mandy Jutsum 882477

COULD YOU BE A SERVER? The server team is keen to recruit some new members to replace those who have retired or moved away. A larger group means a better spread across the rota. We all started from scratch at one time so no special expertise is needed! If you are interested in joining the team and would like to know more about what’s involved then please speak to Margaret Sheather or any other team member.

DO YOU DRIVE TO CHURCH? We are short of drivers for Sunday’s and it will mean some people being unable to get to church if no one volunteers to help.

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK – Sunday 14 May to Saturday 20 May 2017. There is a list on the notice board at the back of the Church asking for volunteers and if you are able to help, please add your name and phone number and indicate which street or streets you can cover.
