From the notices: 8th October 2017

Because of a lack of staff for our Junior Church, for the time being sessions will be reduced to one a month, provided that there is a volunteer to help with safe-guarding. The Junior Church will meet this morning, 8 October and 29 October and Together in Worship on 15 October. Please spread the word about this. If you can volunteer to help with the Junior Church, please see Frances Middleton or Linda Ross as soon as possible. 

The Traidcraft Stall will not be available this morning, 8 October, but will be open again on Sunday 22 October. 

A quiet reflective service of Music and Devotions from Taizé will be held this evening, 8 October, at 6.00 for 6.30 pm at Norwich Cathedral. Entrance is through the South transept door. All are welcome. 

The Norwich City Concert Band are celebrating their 20th Anniversary with a performance at 7.30 pm this Saturday, 14 October, at Chapel Field Road. Admission, £7.00, includes refreshments. 

It’s time to plan your Operation Christmas Child shoebox for a needy child overseas. Pick up a leaflet from the Church which tells you what can be included and also has a label for you attach when it’s finished. A sale of suitable items for boxes will be held after the Sunday morning services on 15 and 22 October. Your box needs to be completed and brought to Church to be received and dedicated on Sunday morning, 29 October. Don’t delay, time’s ticking away! 

The Day Centre has re-started for another year and there are vacancies for some new members. We meet on Tuesdays from 10.30 am to 3.00 pm, and provide teas or coffees mid-morning and afternoon, and a hot lunch at lunchtime. We will be pleased to greet anybody who would like to join us all day, or just for lunch. Please contact Sheila Everitt for more information on 01603 259343. 

The October edition of Contact, our Church magazine is out now. Do ask the Pew Stewards for your copy. Items for the November edition should be with Pauline Mann by 15 October. 

Thank you for your generous gifts to Josias Gonzalez after the morning service last week, which amounted to £357 for the fund set up in Mexico City to help the survivors of the recent devastating earthquake to rebuild their lives. He was very moved by and appreciative of your response.
