SUFFOLK HISTORIC CHURCHES TRUST.  Annual Suffolk Churches ‘Ride and Stride’.  Saturday 10th September.

Starting at 10.00 a.m. at St Martin’s Church, Exning and finishing there at around 5.00 p.m.

If you are a cycling enthusiast or like to drive and you like old churches, then this is for you!  In Suffolk we have beautiful, old and interesting churches, many of these are closed during the week, apart for services. For this one date in the year many of these churches will be open for this event, giving a rare opportunity to explore these buildings.  At times, these buildings require maintenance, preserving them for generations to come.  By taking part and being sponsored you will be helping this wonderful project in keeping these churches safe and in good repair for others to enjoy for generations to come.  If you require further information and/or wish to take part and require a sponsor form, please contact: Christine on 01638 664314 or e.mail Christine.m.pearce2020@gmail.com.  Thank you.

 

LISTEN, CHOOSE, PLAN - is a diocesan initiative as part of "Growing in God". The idea is to try to identify future directions for the parish to allow us to grow. It is in three phases. Firstly people are asked to identify areas which they think we should make as targets for growth; the list of ideas will then be looked at and three areas identified for specific attention; and finally we will produce plans as to how we go about achieving growth. It may seem a strange time to start this process as we enter a vacancy on Revd. John's retirement. However, we can use the information/ideas gathered to help us to compile our parish profile to recruit a new priest with the aim of trying to recruit a person who would be keen to work with us to grow the areas we have identified. 

 

As the first phase of this process, we would like people to identify specific areas that can be considered for priority in our future plans. If you have any ideas, please feed them to any member of the PCC (preferably in writing) so that we can produce an initial list to work from. Thank you. John Pascall.

 

NEXT DATE FOR OUT AND ABOUT: 22nd August

 

VOLUNTEER NEEDED to become the parish data controller to ensure that we retain and use data on individuals as covered by our privacy policy under the General Data Protection Regulation rules. Please talk to me if you would consider doing this. Thank you John Pascall

 

PRELOVED BOOKS IN CHURCH. The book trolleys have returned to St Martin’s Church.  Please feel free to help yourself, and spread the word that they are there.  We aim to have children’s books, novels, and a non-fiction trolley.  Owing to the fact that Sam Street has retired from looking after community books at the kiosk, of which we were an extension, we need new sources of books.  Open Door have kindly offered us a regular supply, but if you are spring cleaning your bookshelves and have something in reasonable condition to recirculate, please leave it at the back of the church.  Thank you again. Jan Lovegrove. 01638 577292

 

CONCERT  (note from Vicky Fairbairn.)  St Agnes’ are having a short concert of less than one hour on Saturday  3rd September at 6.00 to 7.00 p.m. to say goodbye to Revd John Hardy.  Everyone is welcome to come to this; a glass of wine will be served when people arrive and there is no charge.  It would be lovely to have some people from our parish attending.

 

FOOD BANK CURRENT NEEDS:

As of 19 July, we are currently very short of many staples. Demand remains as usual but donations have significantly reduced, presumably because many people are feeling the cost of living problems. If you can help with any of the following it would be a great help:-

Granulated sugar, tinned veg (sweetcorn, peas, carrots), pasta sauces, sachets of instant custard, tinned fruit, tins of rice pudding and jams.

We still have masses of baked beans, soups and pasta so do not need any more of those.

I am aware that my contact list may be out of date so if I have contacted you in error please let me know. If you can supply an alternative contact email then that would be helpful.

With grateful thanks for your continued support, every blessing. Dr Tony White.
