FOOD PLEASE! – for the Royal Marines Band Concert on Wednesday 22 November.
There has been a brilliant response to previous requests for interval refreshments and everyone is very appreciative of all the delicious canapés… so we’re asking you to do the same again for the forthcoming concert.you can help by donating a platter of food, please complete the list at the back of church, take a platter from the basket, fill it with buffet snacks of your choice and bring it along to the Church Hall after 2pm on 22.food can include cocktail sausages, sausage rolls, vol-au-vents, mini sandwiches, cheese & pineapple, mini cupcakes… anything that doesn’t require cutting up beforehand and can be easily eaten with one hand whilst holding a glass of wine in the other!concert is a sell-out so we need lots of full platters – and remember that all the concert profits go towards Church Funds so your help is invaluable.thanks.Gill Barge (9226 8565)
CTD Carol service is Sunday December 17th 6:00pm. Any singers willing to join an ecumenical choir to support the carols and songs for the service please come along, on the following dates, at All Saints Church:
Fri 24 November 7:00pm, Fri 1 December 7:00pm, Fri 8 December 7:00pm, Fri 15 December 7:00pm, Sun 17 December 2:30pm An ability to read music is useful but not essential. You just need an enthusiastic singing voice and be able to commit to most of the rehearsals, including the final Sunday afternoon.See Tricia Gilbert for more details.
Parish Chronicle Distributors needed. Some of our distributors have done the job for years and need a break. We need people for Rookwood View (18 mags), yew Tree Gardens (20 mags) & The Heath (10 mags). Not a difficult job: half an hour a month as ‘postie’ and once a year as subscription collector. If you can help please ring Stuart Cleaver on 9226 2277
Advanced Notice: any adults or young people (11 years or over) who would be interested in being Confirmed, please speak to Revd Emma or Revd Sandie as we will be starting a Confirmation Preparation course early in 2018.
A message from the Pastoral care Team. If you notice that any member of our congregation has not attended church as they usually do, or you hear that they are unwell or in hospital, could you please make one of the clergy aware, or contact the Church Office, as we would like to be able to offer them support visits as needed. Thank you. Nicola Ellis.
