Newsnotes for Sunday January 21st
Food Bank: Thank you as always for generous extras over the Christmas  and New Year. All donations are very welcome, shortages at the moment are cereals  (always needed)  and tins of fish. Sardines in olive oil, tomato sauce, or sunflower oil, tuna, pilchards, mackerel are all very useful. 
LENT GROUPS: The Interchurch Lent Groups will start the week beginning February 19th. We will be using the York Course On the Third Day. A form to fill in is at the doorway going into room 1 for coffee. Please sign up for the day and time that best suit you. The list must come down on Monday January 29th so please do sign up and come and join in.
Flower Donations 2018:  A heartfelt thank you to everyone who gave money to the flower fund last year. Traditionally flowers in church are a symbol of the Resurrection. I know from comments received how much you appreciate the arrangements. If you wish to sponsor a Sunday in 2018 the calendar for flower donations can be found in the South Chancel. Alternatively, you may wish to donate for the general flower fund.
During the winter months the flowers will be done fortnightly. After Easter the flowers will be done weekly and taken to members of the congregation who may not be able to be in church, to those celebrating a special event or as thanks to services given to the church.
Many thanks to the flower team. We are a happy 'bunch'. If you would like to join us speak to Chris or Annice.
