CONDOLENCE BOOK I have been requested to put the condolence book following the Queen's death into St Philips and St Etheldredas Church, so that people there can sign it. Therefore, it will be in the church for the service on 9th October. John Pascall

 

SEVERAL THANK YOUs:-

 

THANKS TO THE BELLRINGERS Following guidance from The Central Council of Church Bellringers and at short notice, St. Martin's bells were rung at noon on Friday 9th September. I would like to thank those who 'dropped everything', especially Edmund Black and Alan Brown who fitted muffles on the bells. Wednesday's ringing marked the commencement of our late Monarch's lying-in-state. Finally, on Monday we rang during the hour preceding the funeral. David Andrews.

THANK YOU The residents of George Gibson Close wish to thank everyone who in any way supported the Coffee Morning last Friday held in the John East Centre. The event raised an incredible £703. 20p for Macmillan Cancer Support. Pam Morter

THANK YOU Particularly to Christine Pearce and Patsy Edwards for the beautiful flower and produce decorations in St Martins Church for the Harvest Festival Service.

 

WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY SOMETHING NEW?  I am starting a poetry appreciation group on Wednesday 12th October at 10.00 a.m.  October until Spring, to leave the summer months free.  Each group member will be invited to bring a couple of poems; perhaps a childhood favourite, or one only just discovered.  Ideas may be found on the internet/library.  If you would like to join the group and for more information, please call Marion Roberts on 01638 662213.  Thank you.

 

A THOUGHT AS WE MOVE INTO A VACANCY

"O God give me the strength to look up and not down, to look forward and not back, to look out and not in, and to lend a hand."

The words were written by E.E. Hale and came from “In Quietness and Confidence” The booklet was edited and compiled by Mary Oakley. Contributed by Pam Morter

LISTEN, CHOOSE, PLAN - is a diocesan initiative as part of "Growing in God". The idea is to try to identify future directions for the parish to allow us to grow. It is in three phases. Firstly people are asked to identify areas which they think we should make as targets for growth; the list of ideas will then be looked at and three areas identified for specific attention; and finally we will produce plans as to how we go about achieving growth. It may seem a strange time to start this process as we enter a vacancy on Revd. John's retirement. However, we can use the information/ideas gathered to help us to compile our parish profile to recruit a new priest with the aim of trying to recruit a person who would be keen to work with us to grow the areas we have identified. 

 

As the first phase of this process, we would like people to identify specific areas that can be considered for priority in our future plans. If you have any ideas, please feed them to any member of the PCC (preferably in writing) so that we can produce an initial list to work from. Thank you. John Pascall.

 

VOLUNTEER NEEDED to become the parish data controller to ensure that we retain and use data on individuals as covered by our privacy policy under the General Data Protection Regulation rules. Please talk to me if you would consider doing this. Thank you John Pascall

 

FOOD BANK CURRENT NEEDS:

As of 19 July, we are currently very short of many staples. Demand remains as usual but donations have significantly reduced, presumably because many people are feeling the cost of living problems. If you can help with any of the following it would be a great help:-

Granulated sugar, tinned veg (sweetcorn, peas, carrots), pasta sauces, sachets of instant custard, tinned fruit, tins of rice pudding and jams.

We still have masses of baked beans, soups and pasta so do not need any more of those.

I am aware that my contact list may be out of date so if I have contacted you in error please let me know. If you can supply an alternative contact email then that would be helpful.

With grateful thanks for your continued support, every blessing. Dr Tony White.
