Newsletter 17th February

Newsletter – 17th February 2019 

This week is half-term, so there won’t be a newsletter next weekend – enjoy the holidays! 


Friday the 1st March is the World Day of Prayer. The World Day of Prayer worship service has a special annual theme which is developed by women from a different country each year.

The Churches Together in Lees and District service will be at 1 pm at St John’s Church, Hey.

Everyone is invited to come along and join with fellow Christians from our locality in Prayer.


The Ladies of Leesfield Coffee Morning on Saturday 2nd March will be in St Thomas’ Community Room from 10.30 am to 12 noon. All are welcome to come and have coffee and a chat with the ladies – they would love to meet you! 

Ash Wednesday is on the 6th March, and our service is 7.30 pm at St Thomas’ Church. Light refreshments will be available in the Community Room after the service, provided by the Ladies of Leesfield. 

If you haven’t yet got your tickets for the Annual White Hart Dinner Dance on Friday 8th March, please contact Jacqueline or any of the retinue mums at St Agnes’. Tickets cost £35 each for a fantastic evening with a 5 course meal, entertainment by Smudge, and dancing until late.


Our parish-wide campaign “Play Your Part”, will be launched on Sunday the 10th March. Everybody who attends our churches and Sunday Schools will receive an information pack about how we can all help to grow and sustain our churches. 

Please do watch out for your pack, and complete and return the response forms.

Items for the newsletter, website and facebook pages to Liz (lizzy.dent@googlemail.com) whenever you want to send. Lots of lovely pictures please!

news update 8th February 2019

The Parish Electoral Roll

It's time for us to complete a new electoral roll for the parish, and below is a poster explaining what it is and why it's important for everybody to be on the roll. Please do have a read, and when you're next in church, pick up a form and complete it. If you're eligible for inclusion on the roll, but unable to get to church, just message us and we can send one to you.

Newsletter 27th January 2019

Newsletter – 27th January 2019

On Sunday afternoon at 3 pm, Churches Together in Lees and District are holding their Christian Unity Service at Zion Methodist Church. As well as a guest speaker, there will be a music group, so please do come along as we unite with our fellow Christians in Worship.


The Ladies of Leesfield Coffee Morning on Saturday 2nd February will be at Marian Smith’s home from 10.30 am to 12 noon.


“Voice” magazine is now available to collect. We have reduced the numbers ordered slightly as there have been quite a few copies of recent editions left over, so to be sure of getting your copy it’s best to order and pre-pay annually, at a cost of £5 for 6 bi-monthly editions.



It must be the time of year for people to be researching history! Sue Gittins from STARS – St Agnes Rallying Support would love to hear from anyone who attended St Agnes’ School in the past. If that’s you please get in touch with Sue using the contact information on the poster.


If you haven’t yet got your tickets for the Annual White Hart Dinner Dance on Friday 8th March, please contact Jacqueline or any of the retinue mums at St Agnes’. Tickets cost £35 each for a fantastic evening with a 5 course meal, entertainment by Smudge, and dancing until late.
