Weekly Diary

If I am walking with two other men, each of them will serve as my teacher. I will pick out the good points of the one and imitate them; and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself.

Circuit & Wider Community

St Wilfrid’s - A group of us went to look round St Wilfrid's a few weeks ago and found it extremely interesting.  There were some people who could not go that evening, so if they would like to remind me who they were, we could arrange another visit, when we have agreed a date. I still have the vouchers that we can give people who are begging on the street.  We have been advised that this is preferable to giving them money. Margaret S

Charities

St. Luke’s Hospice (https://www.stlukeshospice.org.uk/) is the charity for the coffee collections during the current quarter (June-August).

We are raising funds for South Yorkshire Refugee Law and Justice, which helps refused asylum seekers in South Yorkshire.

The Archer Project is in need of a continuing supply of Pot Noodles, tinned fish or fruit with ring pulls and breakfast cereals.  Don’t forget to support the Food Bank with an extra item when you do your shopping.  Please donate unwanted clean clothing/shoes/blankets/sleeping bags to Ben’s Place via Alan Brailey.

Thank you for your continued support to all these charities.

Worship space

As you may know the Property Group have for some time been looking into improving the Worship focus, i.e. platform and furniture in room one. The general idea is to have a lower platform which is more accessible, and to change some of the furniture, reusing some of the existing things. We now have some pictures that give an indication of how this area may look, with prices etc.

It is important for the whole congregation to be able to see, and so we would now like to display these in Room 1 from this weekend, for a week or two in order for you to look, reflect and comment if you wish, on the suggestions. Please give any comments to any one of us on the Leadership Team. Thank you.

5th August - Preliminary Notice - At 10.45am on 5th August we shall be holding our annual Songs of Praise.  Please start to think about your requests for favourites old and new - hymns or songs, Bible passages, poems.  Nearer the time, request slips will be available.

Thank you to the ladies of Banner Cross who offered to help out with Little Fish Refreshment for the next few weeks.  We knew you'd be as generous as always!

Wanted - old garden or workshop tools to donate to ‘Tools for Self-Reliance’, a charity that refurbishes tools and sends them to Africa for farmers and workers.  Please give to Sean.

Coffee rotas - The new coffee rotas are in the pigeon holes, please collect if you are on the rota. If you would like to serve coffee after the morning service and are not on the rota please let me know. Thanks, Kathryn Warren.

Evening Services - Due to the shortage of preachers in August, and in view of the small numbers at Evening Worship, there will be no service in the evenings during the month of August. From September through to December we will monitor the numbers to help us to see whether to continue in this way, or to make a change.

Bible readers’ rota - I shall be preparing the Bible Readers rota for the quarter: September, October and November at the end of this month.  If you would like to be added to the rota, or, alternatively, wish to be removed from it, please let me know as soon as possible.  Alison Russell
