A Message from the Wardens – 8th April 2022

Dear Friends,

Our service on Sunday, Palm Sunday will be Holy Communion. There will be no children’s work for the next 2 weeks because of school holidays.

Easter Sunday will be an All Ages Together service with Communion.

If you would like to make a contribution for the Easter flowers in memory of a loved one there will be a plate at the back of church on Sunday. If you are able to help decorate the church for Easter please come along on Saturday 16th April from 10am. You don’t need to be an expert, everyone welcome!

If you are planning to come to the Maundy Thursday meal please remember to sign one of the sheets either on the font or on the door in the church hall for catering purposes. Any queries to Liz Hardie.

On Good Friday we will meet outside church at 2pm to walk to join the service in the Quiet Garden at Totley Rise Methodist Church. The route will be via Meadow Grove Road where several of our housebound church family live.

The Annual Parish Church Meeting will follow the service on 24th April. There are 3 vacancies on the PCC and nomination forms will be available on Sunday. The official notices will be on the notice board in the porch. If you would like to nominate someone to stand for the PCC please check first that they are willing to stand.

I’m planning to go to the Grace Foodbank on Monday 11th April. If you would like to donate any items, please leave them in the box by the font before then. They are currently short of: plain white rice/ microwave rice, jars of pasta sauce, toilet rolls, tinned tomatoes, biscuits, gravy granules, tomato ketchup, mayonnaise and brown sauce. They have plenty of tea and baked beans.
