Children's Society

Our First Sunday Thing in December will be a Christingle Service.  Get the date (10.30 a.m. on Sunday 2nd December) into as many people's diaries as possible! Many people who have taken candle-shaped collecting boxes for the Children's Society will bring them back as part of this service. 

But before that our First Sunday Thing in November will focus on the work of the Children's Society.  It seems to make more sense to do this when people might be thinking of taking a collecting box rather than wait until the Christingle itself.  Among other things we will learn a little bit about how the Children's Society works as a campaigning group around issues which affect vulnerable young people.  We meet in St Michael's at 10.30 a.m. on Sunday 4th November.

Fair Trade Sunday

It is St Francis Day today - and we've just had our Harvest Festivals - so lots of people's minds are turning again to our care for the environment and for our neighbours.  So Fair Trade will be our theme next Sunday, and there will be a Tradecraft Stall as well.  Remember that we will be gathering in St Michael's - which will remain our venue month by month for the six winter months.
