Church Cleaning
Thanks to all who contributed to the cost of cleaning the Church. Last year you contributed
£700. This amount covered half the annual cost of the cleaner. Most people that give
towards the cleaner give about £20. Thank you. The finance team.

Coffee Shop
Help is urgently needed. We are looking for a team of about 8 people to serve in the Coffee
shop, once a month each. We need 3 servers for Friday mornings and 2 for Tuesdays each
Coffee shop is an important part of our Church, both for raising much needed funds
and to serve our community.

If you can help please contact Ann Hackett on 246 7159

Church Finances
It looks as though we will have a deficit in 2020 of around £3000.
We are not planning a stewardship campaign in 2020 as we will be putting our time and
energy into raising funds for Disabled Access and to try and get the Church path sorted.
When I realised that we were facing a loss this year I also realised that I haven't increased
my monthly giving by inflation for the past 3 years. I also realised that if everyone at St
Mary's who can afford to do so made a small monthly increase in their giving of around £1
per week we would be able to make up most of the shortfall. I am aware that St Mary's is a
very generous Church so I ask you to pray about this and respond however God prompts
you. Many thanks, God bless, Tim

The Children’s Society Report 2020
The Children’s Society had a good year in 2019, the total from the boxes and donations
including the Coffee Morning amounted to £1664.34p. We wish to Thank everyone who
gave their time and money to help the society during the year. In December we had our
Christingle Celebrations and handed out 120 Christingle Oranges to a packed Church,
making a total of £385.00p from the children’s money candles. This is to help Children and
Young people in need throughout the country. Love Pat. x
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

Prayer of Preparation
As you prepare for worship you might like to reflect on these words.
Almighty Father,
whose Son our Saviour Jesus Christ is the light of the world:
may your people,
illumined by your word and sacraments,
shine with the radiance of his glory,
that he may be known, worshipped, and obeyed
to the ends of the earth;
for he is alive and reigns, now and for ever.
