We would like to invite anyone not already on our rotas to lend a hand. In particular, another Communion Steward would be a great help. Please see one of the stewards if you would be willing to participate.  Additional volunteers are also wanted for the flower rota.  Please speak to Marjorie if you are able to help.

Prayer List:This can be found in the vestibule for those you would like to be mentioned in our Prayers of Intercession. You may also wish to tie a prayer to the tree in the Prayer Garden.  You will find cards and string in the vestibule, or speak to one of the Stewards.

Souper Thursday, November 30th, 12 – 1 pm
The lunch in October was well attended and it was especially encouraging to welcome a number of people who hadn’t visited our church before.
If you are happy to contribute soup, a pudding or/and your time for November’s lunch, please let Penny know.
