Weekly notices – 9 October 2016

This week’s Rector’s reflection:  Thank you

Thank you to all of your who generously donated much food for Barnardo’s for our Harvest Festival. They continue to be very grateful for our partnership with them. You may know that we from time to time let them use the Choir Vestry free of charge as a way to further support their work. At a time when many families are in need due to the economic downturn, our assistance of the great work of Barnardo’s is very necessary and important. I am so glad that we are part of a church family that does what we can to help those in need and partner with such a great organisation. Thank you!
