Leesfield Parish November 27th 2016


Today is Advent Sunday. Christingle service at St Thomas’ at 3pm. Bring an orange and we’ll make Christingles (and sing!) Collection in aid of the Children’s Society. If you can’t come please would you leave a donation in the plate at the back of church in the morning?

Four years from the beginning of the LAST project at St Thomas we have got the last piece of the jigsaw. A generous donation allowed us to bid for tables from a church that is closing. They are of good quality and are of 2 different sizes which will give flexibility. Many thanks to that anonymous donor, to Lesley for her organization and those involved in moving them here on a day when the weather made things extra difficult!

Our parish Christmas raffle will be drawn after the carol service on the 18th December. First prize will be a hamper, but we need a few other prizes. Tickets available now £1 each

Monday 28th PCC meet at St Thomas 7pm  Please will all members read the circulated papers beforehand and do their best to attend.

Numbers at our Tuesday 10am service continue to grow. From this week and during the colder weather the service will be held in the community room (for warmth, comfort and easier access)

Saturday 3rd December church will be open from 1.30pm. Sponsored Christmas trees will be set up during the afternoon (have you booked yours yet?) There will be seasonal refreshments and a good social atmosphere. Do come along and join us whether you are having a tree or not. We will go round to the Lees lights switch on at 4.30, where there will be a band playing and a special red-coated visitor.
