Notices @ St Marys Church

Parish Christmas Fair 24th November. We need helpers, as we are extending our activity and we need donations of new or unused items for the stalls. (we are well past people’s throw outs!) These include: Toiletries, Chocolate of any sort, boxed or packaged sweets, bottles of wine, any homemade jams and preserves, well-made/good quality craft items or gifts.

Remembrance Sunday this November will be a big commemoration of the end of the First World War. As well as the usual services we will, this year, have a special 6.30pm service of readings and music to mark the occasion. If you have any family connections with someone involved in the Great War and would like to contribute or be involved please speak to the clergy.

Annual Autumn Clean This is planned for Saturday 10th November morning from 9.00am onwards. It is always fun and also satisfyingly productive so do come and join in if you can.
Celebration You are invited to join Emmeline and Simon in the hall after the 9.30am Service at St Mary's to celebrate Emmeline's 'special' birthday with a drink and piece of birthday cake.

Rennie Grove Hospice 'Light up a Life' Service takes place on Sunday 18th November at 4pm at StMary's. We need helpers to serve the tea and coffee so let Caroline, Rickey or John know if you can help.

Job swap! On Sunday 25th November the 9.30am service at St Mary's will be taken (with help we guess!) by the Landlord of the Olde Kings Arms, Mr Ben Satchfield. Canon John will be running the pub that day and invites you to pop in and have (and pay for!!) a drink between 12 and 2pm. Funds will be raised at this event to jointly support a charity of the pubs choice as well as to raise funds towards the new toilet and kitchenette at StMary's.
