Bibles for our Churches

Thank you to everyone who has offered to sponsor Bibles for our churches, we are now up to around 3/4 of the target! The new Bibles cost £8.50 each. If you would like to sponsor as well (you can sponsor any number you like) please contact me.  

If you would like your own personal copy of the Bible we will shortly be using in our churches then they can be purchased from Quench bookshop, the translation is NIV (Anglicised Edition) 2011 and Quench have a wide variety to chose from. However if you would be happy with exactly the same edition as will be in the pews (https://quenchshops.com/collections/bibles/products/9781444701500 if you want to see what it looks like) they are nearly half the price if purchased in packets of 20. If you would like to Email me I’ll order another 20 if enough people are interested. Keith.

Parish Service

An opportunity for all our church family to worship together around the communion. Children will join the first part of the service before going to the Soltau Centre for children’s groups and will rejoin the service for a final blessing.

Traidcraft

Our Traidcraft stall has a good range of foods and gifts. Please do go over to the Soltau Centre after the Parish Service and have a look at their selection.

Thanksgiving Service

Many of us knew and very much loved Hazel MacKenzie who has died recently.  

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.  All are invited to come to give thanks for Hazel’s life: 12.45pm. Monday 27th March at St James the Less, Stubbings.

East African Disaster Appeal

Hunger on a massive scale is looming across East Africa. Drought and conflict have left 16 million people on the brink of starvation and in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment. More than 800,000 children under five are at risk of starving to death. The Disaster Emergency Committee charities need money to help reduce the scale and severity of the crisis. It is best to donate directly as the UK Government will match pound for pound the first £10 million donated by the public. To donate go to https://www.dec.org.uk/

Electoral Roll Revision and APCM

The electoral roll will be revised  prior to our APCM to be held on 30th April at 12.30pm in the Soltau Centre. Being on the electoral roll entitles you to vote in PCC and Deanery Synod elections at the APCM and is a sign of commitment to the Parish. If you‘re already on the electoral roll you don’t need to reapply - if not please complete a form at the back of the church and give it to a Warden or Gilly at the Parish Office by April 3rd when the roll closes until after the APCM. Husbands and wives should both fill in one, or complete one form signed by both.  Nomination forms for Churchwardens and PCC members will be at the back of the churches. Please prayerfully consider if you should stand for these important roles.

Foodshare

Thank you to all who are contributing to Foodshare. The basic need remains, please can you donate non-perishable food items or essentials such as loo rolls and toothpaste.  There‘s a drop off point at the back of each of the churches. Please ensure items donated are within the best before date.
