Leesfield Parish October 16th 2016

Don’t forget Rose Queen At Home this afternoon (16th) at St Agnes. 2.30pm in church and then stalls and refreshments in the school hall. Do come along and support Bethany!

Building committee meets Monday 17th 7.30pm at St Agnes

Christmas Stall begins next Sunday (23rd) in St Thomas.

Parish trip to York Christmas market will be on Saturday 19th November. Leave at 9am, returning 4.30pm. The cost is £15. Please Let Audrey, Roy or Vera Howarth know if you want to go.

This is the time of year when we are asked to fill in Income survey forms. The diocese uses these in the calculation of our Parish share. If you regularly attend one of our churches please complete one of these anonymous forms and put it in the box provided. Don’t think that if your income is low it’s not worth doing….it really is!

Unfortunately I have been unable to arrange another series of Exploring Prayer sessions this term as I had hoped. It has proved impossible to find a regular time and venue for 5 sessions. I am trying to arrange for next term. However there is a half day on November 5th that you would find interesting. It is at the Cathedral (easy, 5 mins from the Victoria tram stop) beginning at 9.30am. There will be 12 workshops, of which you can choose to attend 2. Do think about coming along. More details on the posters in church.

Community Room  Anyone wishing to book the community room at St Thomas should contact Audrey Atkinson (652 2987) She is in charge of bookings so we don’t double book.
