This 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 – no matter how long ago they died. 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.
Please would PCC members return their questionnaires to Edith as soon as possible – very few have been returned and we hope to discuss them at Standing committee on November 7th.
