Notices for Sunday 2nd August 2015

Ninth Sunday after Trinity


Open Door Stewards: This is Week 1 on your rota.

Request from Hope: Hope is in need of tin openers for our guests in receipt of food parcels. If you can help us supply these please send them in with the donations in the normal way.

Parish Office: Please note that Kathryn will not be in the Parish office on Thursday 13th August and Thursday 20th August. If you have any notices for the Sundays affected, please let her know before Thursday 6th August so they can be produced. Many thanks.

Silverwood: The next service will be on Monday 10th August at 11am. All welcome.

Explorers in Prayer Course: Starting in Autumn, the first three lessons are focused on our relationship with God. The second three lessons are based on the three sections of the Lectio Divina. The next four lessons are preparation for ministering to others in prayer. The final lesson opens up the ultimate goal of prayer. This is a very practical course and so there will be a lot of praying done in the class, but each student will also commit themselves to spend 15 minutes each day doing a prayer exercise set for each week. They will also have several chapters of the course book to read each week. More information can be found on the website>

Bible Study Group: The next meeting will be in the choir vestry at 2:30pm on Tuesday 1st September to continue our examination of the Book of Kings.

Notts Historic Churches Trust: Ride and Stride, Saturday 12th September, is just six weeks away. Last year nearly £270 was raised in sponsorship, of which half benefited our church funds. It is hoped that members of the congregation will participate again this year by walking or cycling to a number of local churches and getting sponsorship for each church visited. Sponsorship forms can be obtained from Gavin Simpson, who can also supply further information which can also be found on the noticeboard at the back of church.

Baptism: Niamh Grace Sutton will be baptised here today at 12:15pm Please support and pray for Niamh and her parents and godparents.
Wedding: Christopher Adam James Brown and Hayley-Jayne Turner will be married here at 3:30pm next Saturday, 8th August. Please support and pray for Christopher and Hayley-Jayne.

Prayers: please remember in your prayers: Janet Toseland, Avril Shaw, Margery Cooper, Jaqueline Kemp, Dennis Cooper, Lionel Kirk, Sue Smith, George Parrott and Jean Smith who are sick. Remember also Ethel Robinson and Elizabeth Littlewood who died in recent days, and all those who mourn.
