NEWS AND EVENTS

Drop In at the Parish Hall -  Monday 12 and Thursday 15 February 2018  - 10.00am

First Lent lunch in support of the Glen Lorne Fellowship, Zimbabawe, is on Friday 16 February 2018 - 12.30pm. The central purpose of the Fellowship is worship and prayer, but in addition it exists to help all those who are not able to help themselves, particularly children orphaned or alone for other reasons. Please support the first Lent lunch so we can offer a little help to them.

Lent Groups “ON THE THIRD DAY”,  a 5 session discussion course, from York Courses, starts on 20 February 2018. Information and Sign-up sheet in the Welcome Area, for 4 House Groups, offering a choice of times and weekday venues. See Roddy R for more details.

Marmalade Festival   Saturday 17 February 2018 from 9.00am to 11.30am in the Parish Hall.  Deliver your marmalade to the Churchill Room between 9.30am and 12 noon on Thursday 15 February 2018 if you can. Toast and marmalade, with coffee or tea, will also be available at the Festival.  Andrew T

Confirmation  Our next Deanery Confirmation will be in the cathedral on the evening of Thursday 3 May 2018.  Adults or young people who may wish to be confirmed, please speak with the Rector as soon as possible.  Preparation begins shortly.

Alton Abbey Retreat – IMPORTANT change in circumstances. Sadly the Brothers at Alton Abbey are depleted and unable to take more than 10 retreatants at this time.  Unlike previous retreats they will be unable to offer any addresses over the weekend, but Andrew Doye will offer a couple of addresses for us on the Saturday.  Please would those who have already signed up reconfirm they are happy to attend by contacting Jane S.

Open the Book  -  The Bible in School.  We would like to form a small team able to go into our local school and narrate bible stories in a lively and entertaining way, as an occasional lunchtime activity.  If you can be available at that time of the day and fancy giving this a go, please have a word.  (Revd Andrew Doye)

2018 is the Diocesan Year of Prayer

Let us pray for the needs of this world:  for those whose lives are threatened by violence of war or terrorism; for those oppressed by cruelty and injustice; for those deprived of food and water by greed and indifference to their suffering.

Let us pray for our own communities: for families whose relationships are being tested and strained; for families suffering financial hardship; for families struggling with ill health and bereavement.

Let us pray for the people we know who need God’s healing touch today that they may know his presence alongside them and his strength supporting them.

Date for your diary: Wednesday 18 April 2018 -  Annual Parochial Church Meeting in the Parish Hall at 7.30pm
