NOTICES

Christian Aid

Help is needed to move tables and chairs for this. Please speak to Brian Turner today in church this morning.
Bishop’s Appeal
Thank you to all who donated the Bishop’s Lent Appeal when a total of £160.00 was raised and has now been sent off.
Ascension Day
There will be a reflective Holy Communion service at 7.30pm this Thursday when we will remember Jesus’ return to heaven after his resurrection, and Pentecost is when we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Jesus’ disciples – often known as the ‘birthday of the Church’. The nine days between these two key celebrations offer us an opportunity for prayer and reflection as we long for that gift of the Holy Spirit for ourselves and our communities. In this in-between time, I want to invite you to spend some time, in church, where there will be prayer stations set up, to help you ponder, reflect and pray that the Holy Spirit
would come and bless and challenge us to witness to God’s life-changing work. Blessing Revd Sharon.
Graveyard Gardening Group!
Thank you to all who came on Friday to work on the Graveyard. This will continue each Friday morning from 9am-11. 00am. So, can you spare an hour to come along and help? – refreshments will be provided. Please just turn up (if you can bring a few gardening tools please do so). There is more information on the poster on the board by the font or contact Revd
