Flowers in Church

The flower in church this week have been sposored by
Joy Daintree
in loving memory of her late husband, Gordon.

--o0o--

The flower sponsorship schedule for next year
is now at the back of the church.

Until the end of December THIS year,
please restrict yourself to one or two dates
so that as many folks as possible have a chance
of getting close to their preferred weekend.


Traidcraft Christmas Cards

A poster showing Traidcraft's Christmas cards
will be on display in the church hall after 10:00am Sunday services,
together with order forms. No payment is required until the cards are received.

Please help to boost Traidcraft's turnover at this difficult time for them*;
it has huge implications for all their Third World suppliers
and their UK employees.

Coats for Kids: Help Needed

Over 200 children's coats have been collected this year for the
Coats for Kids scheme,
which provides free school coats for any families in financial need.

We need help washing the coats and making minor repairs.

If you are able to wash a load, you can collect the coats from the
Co-op Community Space in Ham Road (opposite the Co-op supermarket)
on any Monday, Tuesday, Friday or Saturday,
between 10:00am and 12 noon.
(The coats can also be returned at those times.)

This is a practical way of supporting local families who are on low incomes.
Many thanks if you can help.

For more information, contact
Revd Jane - 07935 538085


Altar Servers at the 10:00am Sunday Service

The number of people able to act as Acolytes and Crucifers
has dropped; we would dearly like new members to join us.

The duties are not onerous, and these roles give an opportunity
not only to serve the church but also to develop relationships
within the church with both lay and ordained members.

If you are interested, or would like more information,
please speak to Judy Short after the service.


Adur East Lions Club: "Message in your Wallet"

The Lions Club gave us "Message in a Tube" for our fridges
which ensures that vital medical information about us
is available to emergency services
in case of an accident at home.

They now bring us "Message in your Wallet",
so that we are also covered when we are out and about.

They are available in the church porch for people who would like one -
for themselves, a relative or a friend.


Church Cleaning: Volunteers Urgently Needed

Pauline would dearly like help with the church cleaning 
which she had previously been doing almost single-handedly.

Some volunteers have kindly come forward,
but more are needed.

Ideally, she would like to hear from people prepared to
form teams of two for the cleaning of church and vestry
one week every month.

If you can help, please speak to her -
and make her a very happy bunny!


Craft and Fellowship Group: Appeal for Materials

The Craft and Fellowship Group need:

  • buttons
  • wool
  • embroidery silks
  • ribbons
  • remnants of material/lining material

If you are able to provide any of these items, we will be very grateful.

Please speak to Sheila or Angela
