|Prayer of Preparation
As you prepare for worship you might like to reflect on these words.
your Son left the riches of heaven

when we prosper save us from pride,
when we are needy save us from despair,
that we may trust in you alone;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Audrey Sidebottom – Treasurer or Ian Hartshorne – Giving Director
Many, many thanks to you all for the lovely cards, flowers and gifts but most particularly
for your prayers. We have certainly had the holiday of a lifetime. However, everyone was
wonderful and God was there in so many different people and events. Hopefully now I can
slowly progress - the sadness is that I am not allowed to cut the grass or the hedges!! Much
Love and Many Thanks to you all. Stephanie & Ian
At next year's AGM in April
Our Treasurer and Planned Giving Officer are both retiring after many years of faithful
service. This means that we will need to rebuild our finance team. If you have interest and/or
skills in this area, please speak to Tim.
I hope that we can appoint a new team to overlap with Audrey and Ian, starting sometime in
the Autumn and ensure a smooth transition.
Payment for the Church magazine is due this month. Our thanks to Alan Smith who has
retired from this post after many years.
Julia and James Wedding
On Sunday 12th August 2018 at 1pm, Julia and James are getting married and they would
love as many people from St. Mary's to come along and share their special day with them.
After the service, tea and cake will be served and you are more than welcome to stay and
share a slice or two! In addition, if you would like to bake a cake to share or could help out
serving teas and coffees, we would be extremely grateful. If you are free to lend a hand or
bake, please can you let James or Julia know. Thank you.
I hope to take part in a blind driving challenge and will be trying to raise funds to enable me
to enter. If anyone is able to sponsor me please have a word when you see me in Church.
|For people who give by bankers order
There are now slips in a basket near the hymn books. If you give by bankers Order please
take one and put it on the collection plate during the service. It was felt that giving by Bank
Orders should be recognised and blessed along with other gifts on the collection plate
