Leesfield Parish – 23rd September 2018
It’s not too late to join the Emmaus Group meetings in St Thomas’ Community Room. There are flyers available in both churches giving more details, so please do come along. The second meetings in the series will take place on Wednesday 26th September at 7 pm, and Monday 1st October at 1.30 pm.
Next Friday, 28th September, there will be a Macmillan Coffee Morning in the Community Room from 9 am to 12 noon. Come and join us for coffee and cake, and raise money for this really worthwhile cause. If you are able to help by baking something for this event please see Karen.
The Parish Harvest Service is at 10 am on Sunday 7th October at St Thomas’ Church. After the service you are all invited to join the Ladies of Leesfield for a Harvest Brunch, with bacon or sausage barms or beans on toast, and tea or coffee. There will also be a Home Bake stall and a raffle. Tickets are £5 each and are on sale now, or you can pay on the day.
On Saturday 13th October we will again be walking the Parish Boundary. For anyone who hasn’t been before, this is a great day of walking and companionship, where you can see the whole of our parish from viewpoints you may not have been to before. More information next week.
We are all Disciples - The Vocations Group of Oldham East Deanery Mission & Pastoral Committee has been considering how we can help people to understand their role as Christians and how they can be resourced and set free to act out their faith every day. We are making a start with a Deanery Day on Saturday, 20th October at St John’s Church entitled “We are all Disciples”.
The day starts with coffee at 10 am, followed by a programme of worship and talks that will finish at 3 pm, with a break for lunch. More information can be found on the poster and flyers in both churches. If you are able to come along, there is a list in each church for you to add your name.
