Collection Plates at the 10am Sunday Service

The collection plates will no longer be passed around during the offertory hymn for your envelopes or cash to be placed into at the Sunday 10am service. As with other services, collection plates will be at the back of church as the sides-people hand you your books and once again placed at the back of church at the end of the service. Thank you for your continued support.


The St James' Church Family Service-This is on the 3rd Sunday of each month

Volunteers needed for St Nicholas' Cafe:

The volunteers we have at the moment do a wonderful job covering their own slots and spare sessions in the cafe,  but we need more people. At the moment we are on occasion having to close early in an afternoon due to lack of staff. If you can spare a morning or afternoon to help in the cafe at St Nicholas', please speak with Michele (in the Parish Office) or Tracey Jackson (on 696932). Thanks.


Note from Alison Riley about Network Youth Church:
Network Youth Church exists to encourage those aged 11-18 to explore and go deeper in faith.  As the leader for Calder Deanery, I am employed 2.5 days per week to help facilitate this.
There are a number of youth groups connected with Church across the area - if you would like me to promote yours in the next newsletter, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in any way - through prayer, finance, or by volunteering.

I will be continuing with my role as Network Youth Church Leader, albeit as an ordained minister, as well as bein Curate of the Parish.
I hope you enjoy this newsletter - my aim is to produce one every three months - the next one will be in July 2017
