Next Sunday we celebrate All Saints Day with services at the usual times in both churches. Then in the afternoon we have a service for All Souls at St Thomas’ at 3.30pm. This is a short reflective service where we come together to remember our loved ones departed. There will be readings and hymns and an opportunity to light a candle for a loved one. The names of everyone for whom the clergy have conducted a funeral in the last 12 months will be read out, and if you attend, you are invited to add the names of your loved ones departed to the list. Everyone is of course welcome.
On the 5th of November we are invited to attend the School of Prayer in the Cathedral. This will be an interesting and inspiring event. A group of us are going to meet at Derker Tram stop just before 9am to travel together. You are welcome to join us –let me know if you need a lift to Derker! The event finishes late lunchtime.
On 6th November there is a Churches together service at Springhead Congregational Church at 3pm. Title is For all the Saints. We will sing hymns, listen to some short talks and pray about 3 of the well-known saints. See poster in church for details.
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.
If you attend church regularly and haven’t yet complete an Income survey form please would you do so today.The diocese uses these in the calculation of our Parish share. The forms are anonymous! Don’t think that if your income is low it’s not worth doing….it really is!
