Clergy Education & Training Fund – Special Collection:        Today the annual collection for this fund is being held.  Special envelopes are available for you to use.  If you use weekly offertory envelopes, please could you write in your envelope number.  If you contribute to the parish by weekly standing order, could you write in your name and address including postcode.  It will then be possible to claim gift aid on your donation.  Thank you.


Gift Aid:         If you are a taxpayer and contribute regularly to the Offertory collection, please consider joining the Gift Aid Scheme.  This simply means that any contributions made by yourself, the parish can claim back the tax.  Your contributions must be recorded so therefore you will need to contribute either by weekly numbered envelope or by standing order.  There is no extra cost to yourself and it is completely confidential.  Forms are available at the back of church together with envelopes or please contact Kath, the Gift Aid organiser on 483 3799


SVP News:      The SVP Society in the parish visit in hospitals and in homes.  Vital work.  We would be pleased to hear about people in the area who would welcome visits from members of the SVP as friends.  This includes people who are not members of the parish as well.  Please speak to Kevin.
