Church Anniversary: we will be celebrating this on 7th November, when all are invited to a ‘bring and share’ lunch after the service. Today you may find a letter addressed to you in the vestibule about the Thank-offering which we will take up on that day: please collect this letter before you leave the building.

Eco Corner We will apply soon for our Bronze award. Thank you for your efforts to reduce, re-use, recycle and for answering our LOAF questionnaire. Your positive actions and answers are helping us towards a silver award: but that will be a lot harder!

Traidcraft: we have a stall in the hall today. Please have a look – you could get early Christmas cards, or some new flavours of chocolate, or much else. If you wish to order items from the catalogue, Mary would be pleased to accept an order and bring the items another week. 

Prayer Chain: Peter and Margaret will be away until Tuesday, so please direct any requests to Peter Woolway.

Foodbank: we have a collection basket each Sunday in the hall. Current urgent needs are deodorant (for men or women), sponge puddings, 100g jars of coffee, sugar, custard, rice pudding.  

Jill F no longer uses her mobile phone, so please delete that number from your records.
