PARISH  OFFERTORY COLLECTION:  £295.95  Thank you CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE and DRAW Very many thanks to those who organised and supported the lovely Carol Service last week and the Christmas Draw and the Bingo.  Thanks also to all those who donated prizes.  A special thanks to our Little Church children who performed the Nativity story within the carol service.   They were wonderful!  The Christmas Draw raised a total of £411.  Many thanks.  A list of all the prize-winners is on the notice board in the porch.  Please collect prizes from the sacristy asap!


As we approach Our Saviour’s birth, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our parishioners for their prayers and support over the year. At the heart of the parish is the Eucharist, the Sunday Mass. Thank you all who come to pray and worship the Lord together every Sunday and for supporting each other as a parish. I am very grateful to all who give of their time: Church Cleaner, Sacristans, Collectors, Altar Servers, Children’s Little Church Leaders, Readers, E. Ministers, Flower Arranger, Catechist, Musician and Choir. Thank you also to those who contribute by helping with pastoral care and outreach, hospitality after Mass, sacramental programme leaders, finance (counting, fund-raising, banking, advice etc.), administration, those who organise and help with the various charities and missions, safe-guarding, ecumenism, administration, grounds and garden maintenance and the Parish Pastoral Council.
