    July 12th Service

    Sunday October 4th 10.30am Holy Communion

    The Harvest Festival service highlights the value of giving and being a good neighbour so this year as well as supporting the Foodbank as usual with food and monetary donations. we are promoting the giving of friendship.  We hope to do this by organising friendship letters, cards and pictures to send to local care homes and isolated elderly people.

    It would really brighten a resident’s day to get a chatty letter or colourful card or picture, giving them something to talk about and share with fellow residents. There will be donation points in Church to receive your gifts of friendship and donations for FoodBank. You can also leave them at the Rectory 10 Hartland Close WA8 9FB.

    Annual meetings to elect churchwardens and PCC members is on Sunday 18th October after 10.30am service in church and on Zoom. If you would like to become a member of the PCC and be involved in decisions about church life please contact Rev Bob.

    The electoral roll is to be revised before the annual meeting. If your name is already on the Roll you do not need to do anything but if you would like to add your name to the roll forms are in church or you can download here, please return forms by Sunday 11th October.
