Dates for Church diary

Please write in the new diary any events you or your group are hoping to hold in church during 2022.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry and Neighbourly Natter have already done so.  The diary is in St.Swithin’s room behind the door. Many thanks.

 

Recording of Services

If anyone is unable to get to church and would like a recording of a service, please would you email Jeremy directly, who will be able to send you the video link.     jeremybrading@gmail.com

 

Bible Study Group

Monday afternoons from 2.30 – 4.00 pm in Church, looking at the readings set for Sunday. It is an informal discussion group where all thoughts and ideas are valued. New members will be made very welcome.

 

Salvation Army

We are now able to continue collecting food items for Burton Salvation Army, the basket will be in church which will be open every day. Tinned or packaged goods – in date please.

 

Coffee after Sunday services

We will be starting coffee again after the 10.30am Sunday services. I will set up and serve etc, but would like people to help with the washing and clearing up afterwards, which can be decided on the day. We cannot keep any opened biscuits/cake in church, so these would have to go home with the bringer. Complete packets can always go in the Food Bank Basket. I will provide biscuits for this Sunday. Judith Rickard.

 

Cleaning Rota 2022

It is time to start the cleaning rota again. We need 2 people per week to tidy, do light dusting, hoover if necessary, check sinks etc.  About an hour and a half would be enough. We have a big clean twice a year for high dusting, proper polishing etc. Materials provided. Please contact Judith Rickard on 472682.

 

Soul Food Course

Deborah would like to draw to everyone’s attention to a course on prayer run by the Diocesan Spirituality Team.  It is called ‘Soul Food’ and is available in-person and on-line:

‘Soul Food’  is a course for anyone who wants to grow in prayer.

While there is a full in-person course running, potential participants may also want to do the course online. Over eight evenings and two Saturdays this spring, the group will explore and practice ways of praying, with awareness of the Christian prayer traditions and also of our own personalities and the ways God is calling us now. The course is open to all including beginners in prayer and those with longer experience.

If you would like more information have a word with Deborah or contact Charles Ruxton, Diocesan Spirituality Adviser. Details and an application form are on our website

Please will you send any requests for floodlights to Rosemary Payne, 9 Hadley Street. Tel: 472943 rosemary.payne@mypostoffice.co.uk   Thank you.
