Leesfield Parish April 10th 2016

                       
Straight after this morning’s service at St Thomas there will be a short PCC meeting to approve the accounts ready for Annual Parish Meeting. There are sheets at the back of both churches for your nominations for Wardens and PCC members, together with sheets for sidepeople to sign.

Tuesday 1pm  Showing of Chocolat at Zion Methodist Church. Tea and biscuits will be served.

If you are interested in being Confirmed in July (24th) please give your name to Edith or Ruth.  There are many adults in our congregations who are regular attenders……is this going to be the year you take this step?

Family Social evening Saturday April 16th  - come along and help make this a real parish event. Bring your own food and drink. Entry is free, but get tickets from Laura or Karen so we know how many are coming! See poster for details.

Tickets are now on sale for the Big Band Gala Night on the 2nd July. £10 adults, £5 children (although probably only suitable for older children}, includes buffet supper. From the 20th April any tickets remaining will be made available through "Churches Together", and later to the general public, so to avoid disappointment it's best to buy your tickets early. There will only be 120 tickets in total because of the seating capacity at St. Edward's Hall, so if you are unable to come because of other commitments please don't buy a ticket as we would love to have a "full house" on the night. However, if you wish to support the event in another way, donations of cash or raffle prizes will be gratefully received.

Summer Term Coffee Morning on Tuesday 12th April at St. Thomas’ Leesfield School 9-10:45am.  So come along and find out about future FUNdraising events and each class will be performing for you in the hall whilst you enjoy a drink and a chat. 

Our next textile collection is Tuesday 19thth April at 9am so if you haven’t already started collecting why not declutter over the Easter holidays and ask your family and friends too.  Just a reminder that towels or bedding are no longer accepted, however local charity shops are more than happy to take them J Duvets and pillows should be recycled at Clothing Banks or the local tip.  Shoes are one of the best to bag up as they weigh heavy but please don’t send in bags full of bric-a-bric as any bags with unacceptable items are deducted from our total weight.  Thank you so much for your continued support our Textile Collections, keep decluttering J  If you have bags which need collecting please see Karen.
