Leesfield Parish October 2nd 2016


Today we celebrate Harvest. Thank you for all your gifts towards this. They are added to those from St Thomas’ School and St Hugh’s school and will be taken to the food bank run by the Impact Community Church –this does vital work giving food to people in desperate immediate need of food. We have had very enjoyable harvest celebrations with all three of our parish schools this week. Gifts from St Agnes School are taken, as usual, to another excellent cause.

Thank you too to the Ladies of Leesfield for organizing the lunch many of us will share later. Because of that lunch there will not be coffee after the service today.

Today is the deadline for Supplementary forms for Bluecoat and Crompton House to be given to Edith. Meetings with wardens and Sunday school leaders take place this week. The forms will be signed then and returned to you as soon as possible.  .


Next Saturday, 8th October, there will be a Coffee morning at 2 Hopkin View 10.30 till noon – the home of Brenda Morton

Tuesday morning Eucharist   Our numbers are growing! It is a joy to see the congregation at this service getting bigger in numbers and including people who also attend one or other of our Sunday services. Come and join us at the service and stay for a cuppa and chat!   (10am)


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.

In order to save on printing costs and to be more environmentally friendly, we are reducing the number of newsletters we are producing. Newsletters are sent electronically to everyone for whom Edith has an e mail address. If you would like to add your name to the list of those who can be sent information electronically please let Edith have your e mail.  Information from newsletters and from the magazine are published on the website too.
