Notices for Sunday 17th August 2014

Ninth Sunday after Trinity

 


Open Door Stewards: This is Week 3 on your rota.

Sunday School: Please note, there will be no Sunday school until Sunday 7th September.

ABC2: Please note, there will be no ABC until Tuesday 9th September.

Seven Marble Memorials - Many thanks to all of you who have sponsored a Memorial and contributed or promised a contribution towards the cost of this project. We had hoped for the job to be done by 4 August, but unfortunately the person who will do the repair is very busy and will not be able to do it until the end of August - at least it will be done for Remembrance Day!
If you intend to donate something but haven't got round to it, please do so as soon as convenient. For further details speak to one of the Church Wardens, Pat or Ray.

Website Redevelopment Update: We are moving on to the next stage of this project and are now reviewing the content of our current site.
• We are in the process of contacting all Group Leaders asking them to review their group's information as it appears on the site at the moment. If you are able to respond electronically this would be very helpful, but paper forms are also available. Please could you return the form to Rebecca Gillie (using the details provided) by Sunday 24th August.
• In preparation for the new site, James Hall (our web designer) will be in and around church during and after the Sunday morning service today to take some photos of both the inside and outside of the church. We don't just want photos of an empty church on the new site, so please be aware that there may be a camera pointed in your direction! If you have any concerns about this please let us know.
If you have any questions regarding this project please speak to Liz Baldock, Rebecca Gillie or Phil Sherratt.

Silverwood Service: The next service at Silverwood Nursing Home will be at 11am on Monday 25th August. Support, as always, will be welcome.

RIDE AND STRIDE for the Notts Historic Churches Trust: This fund-raising event for NHCT takes place on Saturday 13th. September. Half of the money we raise goes to our church funds and St John's has also recently benefitted from grants from NHCT for the reordering of the church. Volunteers are needed to get sponsorship for visiting Notts historic churches either by bicycle or on foot. For further details see poster at back of church and for Sponsorship Forms see Gavin Simpson. Volunteers are also needed to welcome sponsored Riders and Striders visiting our church between 10.00am and 2.00pm. For further details and list to sign up at back of church.

Please sign the list if you are willing to steward. Thank you. Sheila Allton

Bible Study Group: We will start looking at Samuel, which follows on from Judges/Ruth on Tuesday 23rd September. This would be a good point for newcomers to join in. Please let me know if you are interested. Philip Wheeler, 925 4346.
