FREE Wood Chips

As a result of some tree surgery last week, we have a surfeit of Wood Chippings.

Please help yourselves to any Wood Chips you might like for your gardens or pathways.

The heap of CHIPS will be found on the Manor House CAR PARK corner by the old Gate in the ancient brick wall.

Giving to God and his church – Can you help please?

Thank you so much to everyone who gives regularly to support our parish and its mission, and those who have made recent gifts.

During the pandemic we are continuing to monitor our finances very closely and reduce spending as much as we can. But we face a large shortfall in income, currently estimated to result in a shortfall of at least £40,000 in the year just ended.

If you can, there are at least 3 ways in which you might help. Perhaps you could make a gift to our parish in thanks that God is working through us all during 2021, praying for better times soon. Alternatively, please carefully consider whether you can increase your monthly gift to maintain its value, or if you have joined us, by starting to give by monthly bank transfer.

Please give electronically if you can. Bank instruction forms are available on request. For convenience, our bank details follow. You are welcome to contact me if you have a question about this.

Please do help if you can at this really difficult time for the whole parish. Every good wish. Robert. robert@alder.ndo.co.uk
