Xandie’s  SHOUT OUT …

Dear All
How wonderful to see so many of you at our beautiful Christingle service last sunday and for all the many children and teenagers who helped and the parents who helped in the hall and putting the chairs away.
This Sunday is Messy Christmas at 4pm in the church, when we will decorate the Christmas tree, that has kindly been donated to us, and make cards and decorations.
Hazel will then tell the Christmas story of Almighty God’s amazing present of his Son, Jesus, born as a human baby in a stable in Bethlehem to save mankind.
We will then have a Bring and Share tea, as there are no cooking facilities in the church. So Please bring a plate of food to share, we are providing sausages and sausage rolls. thank you!
 
The following  Friday 14th Dec. is the Bulrushes Christmas party, which starts at 9.30 in the Hall, we shall go into church to listen to the Christmas story with Hazel and sing. We will be providing snacks, but it would be lovely if you could bring a plate of food to share and if your child has special dietary needs, please make sure you bring food that meets their requirements.
 
The Carol Service is 16th December, when the junior choir will sing away in a manger. Afterwards we will draw the Hamper Raffle in the Hall.
God bless you

Dear All

This Sunday is Trinity Sunday.
There is no 9.15am Praise Service as there is a Team Service at St. Michael’s at 10am, when Jeremy will take the service for St. Mary’s, St.Thomas’ and St. Michael’s.
Michelle Fotherby and Zoe are organizing activities in the Hall for the children, so for once, parents will have space for themselves during the service. The children will join us for the communion with their parents.

Trinity Sunday comes directly after Pentecost, the birth of the Christian Church, when Peter baptised 3000 people into the Church.
The last thing Jesus told his apostles, before his Ascension, was that they should baptize people in the name of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit  – The Trinity (3 united)’
The Trinity that brought the Universe into being in the first 3 verses of the Bible, when the Spirit of God moved over deep space and the Word (Jesus) of God the Creator said “Let there be light.” and the Big Bang happened.
God bless

This week is our Super Sunday 10am service to celebrate Pentecost – the Coming of the Holy Spirit and the birthday of the Christian Church.
In past times, this was called Whitsunday, short for White Sunday when Confirmation services were held and girls wore white, as we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit at our Confirmation.
Practising Christians should take Holy Communion at least 3 times a year, Easter and Christmas as compulsory and the 3rd one often Pentecost.
We will have cake and coffee afterwards in the hall.

There will be a Confirmation later in the year, so if you or your children have not yet been confirmed, please think about this and let me or the office know.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

God bless

This Sunday at 9.15am, is our short Praise Service and Peter and I are taking it. The story is about Jesus healing someone who has been ill for 38 years!

Thank you all for the wonderful Spring Fair last Saturday, it was so lovely to see so many children and their families enjoying themselves. Well done to so many people giving up their time to make this such a success and thank you God for the lovely weather. Not one drop of rain till everything was packed away!

On Thursday 30th May, there is  an Ascension Day service  at 8pm at St. Thomas’. when Jesus returned to heaven, leaving the apostles to await the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

We are having a Super Sunday at 10am on 9th June to celebrate Pentecost, the third most important date in the Christian Year.

Please do note there will not be Messy Church that day, so we can all gather together as the Apostles did to await The Holy Spirit’s arrival.

I do hope you all have a good half term

Dear All
This week it is Messy Church at 4pm in the hall (no 9.15am service!) and we look forward to seeing you.

In case you haven’t heard,  Reverend Sharon Roberts has been appointed our new vicar and will probably join us soon, when we have been able to arrange a suitable date with Bishop Alan to licence her. Sharon is part of the Beaconsfield team at St. Mary’s at present, but many of you may already know her. She took our lovely Mothering Sunday service at the end of March and organized the beautiful prayer station in St.Michael’s during Holy Week. The decision by the interviewing panel was unanimous. Thank you God!

Only 1 week to our Spring Fair,  Margaret Skinner is desperate for tombola prizes please. Bakers please bring your cakes etc to the Church Meeting Rooms after 9.30am Friday if you would like them wrapped or Saturday morning (preferably early enough for them to be wrapped or bring wrapped by yourselves!)
We still need lots of volunteers, particularly for the children’s activities. The more volunteers, the more activities we can do! Even if you can only do an hour, it gives a stall holder a chance to have a cuppa or a burger! Thank you!

God bless

Dear All

This Sunday is our Early Birds service in the Hall at 9.15am. The story is the Road to Emmaus, where 2 disciples recognized Jesus on Easter Day, when he took the bread at supper and broke it. We meet Jesus at Holy Communion, when we communicate with Him, on a one to one basis. In our modern world, we communicate one to one daily on our smartphones, keeping our relationships with those we love alive  –do we communicate with Jesus as often?  Keeping our relationship with him alive? We should!

Thank you to those who came and enjoyed the beautiful bluebells, last Sunday. We raised £50, only 6 days after the Easter Egg Hunt. Well done! Your support for St. Michael’s is so appreciated.

Only 2 weeks to the Spring Fair – we need children’s value items (i.e. scooter, bike, etc), any bottles for the bottle tombola, children’s tombola prizes, cakes and your help for a couple of hours to help run stalls. Please volunteer!

Please spread the word to your friends and family and come 11-2 Saturday 18th May.
God bless
