New! Urgent help required

Do you usually make coffee after 11am services? Could you make coffee for the families attending our 9.30 services once a quarter?

We are really short of helpers at the moment and this is such an important social time. On the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays it’s after the service, around 10am and on 2nd and 4th Sundays we serve during our fun, café church services from 9.15am.

You would be on duty with another volunteer and if you haven’t yet joined the coffee team, we can show you what to do. Please see Nicky Alder or email [email protected] Thank you

New! A big thank you

Fete Thank you

A huge thank you to everyone who helped in any way whatsoever to make our Parish Fete on 29 June such a wonderful success.

Whether you donated items, put up posters, bought Grand Draw tickets, provided prizes, transported, set up or cleared up, baked (both cakes and yourselves in the incredible heat), ran a stall or game, or came and spent generously etc, etc – we are so grateful for all these contributions.

A great team effort! Thank you so much. Carolyn Fox & Nicky Alder (already planning 2021!).

Below are some familiar prayers that Christians have found helpful and inspirational down the centuries which you may want to use :

O God, from whom to be turned is to fall, to whom to be turned is to rise,
and in whom to stand is to abide forever; grant us in all our duties , thy help,
in all our perplexities thy guidance, in all our dangers thy protection,
and in all our sorrows thy peace; through Jesus Christ out Lord.   Amen
St Augustine of Hippo

Thanks be to  thee, our Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits which thou hast given us,
for all the pains and insults which thou hast borne for us.
O most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we see thee more clearly,
love thee more dearly,
and follow thee more nearly
day by day.
St Richard of Chichester

Lord, I shall be verie busie this day.  I may forget thee, but do not thou forget me.   Amen.
Sir Jacob Astley’s Prayer befor the battle of Edgehill

Grant us, O Lord
in thought, faith;
in word, wisdom,
in deed, courage;
in life, service;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.   Amen
