Leesfield Parish April 3rd 2016

                       

Exploring Prayer sessions  are being held on Wednesdays 7.30pm in the vicarage.
These sessions last around an hour. We will explore a variety of different ways of approaching prayer. The second session will be held this week…. All are welcome!

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.

Next Sunday there will be a short PCC meeting to approve the accounts ready for Annual Parish Meeting. This will be in St Thomas Church straight after the service.
There are sheets at the back of both churches for your nominations for Wardens and PCC members, together with sheets for sidepeople to sign.

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.

The development group are pleased to announce that the work will begin in the next few days. Getting together enough money for the installation of the toilet and kitchen hasn’t been easy. It has taken a good deal of work in applying for grants, and your donations and pledges have been vital. However, we are only just able to afford the basic work, assuming no other hitches, and more will be needed for the finishing off work!
