Tuesday 16th at 12 noon - first Lent Lunch session at Zion Methodist Church.
These sessions are organized by Churches Together, and each one will be led by a different minister. Each session is stand alone, come to as many as you can. We begin at noon with reflections on excerpts from some well-known films, and this is followed by a soup and roll lunch. All welcome!
Today is your last chance to pick up a bargain at the stall being run at the back of church by Harvest Queen Amy and her retinue.
Next Sunday the Ladies of Leesfield will run their stall for Easter. Donations of Easter-type goods will be gratefully received.
Donations too, please, for the raffle being held at the White Hart event (to Laura Lees please)
Our Parish website is being completely refreshed and updated by Judith.

You can add your e-mail address to receive an e-mail whenever it's updated to make sure you don't miss anything. The web address is leesfieldparish.blogspot.co.uk
Tuesday 10am service each week at St Thomas. This is a short service without hymns. Numbers at this are dwindling –why not come along at least during Lent if you are around in the daytime?
Our Annual Parish Meeting is drawing closer. Now is a good time to think about membership of the PCC. In particular St Agnes Church needs a Warden – Philip Hibbert kindly agreed, last year, to serve for a year (which has been really useful) but now a new warden really MUST be found.
Please think carefully about whether you could give to church by standing order. This is a simpler way to give than remembering to bring collection, and it gives church a clearer idea of what funds we have available. Failing that, could you take planned giving envelopes? If you are a tax payer, would you be willing to gift aid your donations- so the church gets money back from the tax man? Please ask Liz Dent or Edith for forms, or the wardens for planned giving envelopes.
