From the Notices 3rd February 2019

v Carey Moore is our guest organist for Morning Worship today. We welcome him into our fellowship and trust that he will feel at home with us.

His funeral will take place this Monday, 4 February, at 10.15 am at Earlham Crematorium, followed by a Service of Thanksgiving for his life at Hethersett Methodist Church at 11.15am, after which refreshments will be served in the Church hall. We hold his family in our thoughts and prayers. Donations in his memory will be shared between Nelson’s Journey and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

v The February issue of Contact, our Church magazine, is out today. Do ask the Pew Stewards for your copy. Items for the March edition should be with Pauline Mann by 17 February.

v Please note that Methodist Safeguarding rules mean that we need all key holders to sign new Safeguarding Form D Key holder Declarations. If you are a key holder Chris Hopper or Margaret Snelling will, over the next few weeks, let you have a new form to sign. It is also an opportunity to review who holds keys to the church; if you have a key please consider returning it if it is no longer a necessity.
