Leesfield Parish January 17th 2016


PCC meets, Monday 18th 7pm St Thomas

Thursday 21st  Ladies of Leesfield   Coffee evening at 83 Spring Lane 7.30pm

We are close to signing the contract for the development work at the back of church. The work will probably begin in early April, and so there will inevitably be some disruption…… things not in the usual places etc. Please be patient – it will be worth it!

Your church needs you! Why not use the New Year as a time to start doing something extra for church? It is too easy to expect things to just happen, for others to do them. We particularly need more people to read and do the prayers at both churches – help is available if you are unsure. The flower rota at St Agnes has spaces, the flower arrangers at St Thomas would welcome more volunteers, the coffee rota at St Agnes needs filling in too.

We plan to continue to admit children from years 4 and 5 to communion before confirmation – at the service on Easter Day. This will be the third year we have done this.
Preparation sessions will need to begin fairly soon as Easter is early this year. If you are interested please let Edith or the Sunday school leaders know as soon as possible. Further information is available.

St. Thomas’ Leesfield Eco Committee have their next textile collection on Wednesday 27th January, so if you fancy a clear out of clothes, shoes, handbags, etc please bag up and bring along for 9am.  If you need your bags collecting please contact Karen Jakeman.

The Ultimate Minion’s Valentine’s party is coming to St. Thomas’ Leesfield on Friday 12th February 6:30pm-8:30pm.   So come along in fancy dress and be entertained by Mimi Minion and friends; music, dancing and silly games.  Don’t delay buy your ticket now, only £5 including food, drink and photograph with your Minion friend.  Tickets are available from Mrs Jakeman.  This will be a children only disco and parents are requested to drop off their children for a 6:30pm start and pick them up promptly at 8:30pm.  Thank You.

From next Sunday 24th January, you can pick up a bargain at the church stall run by Harvest Queen Amy Jakeman and her retinue.  There will be books, toys and household goods.
