Leesfield  Parish    

Next Sunday, 21st December, we hold our Carol Service beginning at 6.30pm.
This is a great start to Christmas, as we hear readings and sing carols that tell the Christmas story. If you have been before you will know how good it is, if you haven’t been before do come along!

Raffle Tickets are available for the parish Christmas raffle. There are many great prizes, and this is a very important fundraiser for the parish. The raffle will be drawn next Sunday after the carol service.

Thursday 18th December  Prayers, carols and mince pies at the home of A. Atkinson 52 Spring Lane

Next Monday, 22nd December, we plan to sing carols around the parish, raising money for the Booth Centre. It is Not true that people pay us to go away! Weather permitting, we meet outside St Thomas church at 6.30pm. The more people we have, the more noise we make and the more fun we have.

Flowers – there are no flowers in church in Advent. At St Thomas’ we are asking for donations towards flowers for Christmas, to be given to Audrey please. At St Agnes we are asking people to put their names on the flower rota, for Christmas and beyond.

Parish Family Fun Social Event – Saturday, 24th January, 2015 – we are still looking for a small group of people to organize this! Tickets available at both churches £3 each
£8 family.

Psalm response The Lord has done good things for us and we are glad indeed

Parish Family Fun Social Event

Saturday, 24th January, 2015
at St. Edward’s Function Room, Spring Lane, Lees
The Development Group need your help!!  We are asking for ideas in order to create a really good Social Event to raise funds for the Development   Project and the Church.  At the current time, we have arranged for Mid-Life Crisis to come along – anyone who came to the last event where they played will remember their really good music from 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and    beyond.  We are planning that the event will be a ‘Bring & Share’ but as yet, other arrangements have yet to be confirmed .  With a little bit of help from everyone, we can organise a really good fun event for all the family so if you are interested in getting involved in the organisation of this event, please contact  Jenny Daubney at r.daubney2@ntlworld.com.  
It is hoped that tickets – will be on sale mid December – further information will be included on the Pew Sheet and in the Church Magazine.
