Saturday 29th June 

Rev Al has been advised that his priesting service will take place on 29th June.  The time of the service is 5.00pm so please put that date in your diary. The coach will leave Town Street at 3.45pm to be there for 4.30pm. Please be at the church for 3.30pm. 

Sunday 30th June

After Rev Al’s first communion we will be holding a celebratory bring and share meal. There is a form at the back of the church to sign up what you would like to bring and share. Please feel free to add other ideas to the list as it would be nice to have a good spread.

Summer Fete

The Summer Fete will be on August 3rd 2019. There will be boxes in church for raffle and tombola stalls. Books etc will be collected nearer the day. Thank you. Jean Cornford 

Bra’s wanted

Wanted for women refugees, bra’s in good clean condition. Please see Jean Cornford for more details.

Help with Counting Collection

We are looking for two volunteers to occasionally help with the above. It would be very helpful to have someone on standby who knows what needs doing whenever Jan or Jeffrey are not in church. Please contact either David or Janet Pursell if you are willing to help.

Rural Dean Appointed

Bishop Christopher has appointed Rev Philip Johnson, vicar of St Denys’, Sleaford, as Rural Dean of Lafford.  


The Chronicle

We are looking for items for the next Chronicle Edition. If you have any item you would like to submit, please see Carole Shepheard, Rev Al or Rev Mark.

Clergy Days Off

Rev Mark will take Tuesday as his day off and Rev Al will take Fridays. 

 Refreshments

Please put a few coins in the donations bowl when you enjoy a tea or coffee at the end of our services if you are able.  The money is used to fund the wonderful floral displays that our flower arrangers create. 

Sleaford Talking Newspaper 

Sleaford Talking Newspaper needs some Readers or Recording Technicians to help record news from our local papers to blind or partially sighted people in our area. The recordings are done on a Wednesday afternoon or evening. If this interests you please give Howard Sanders, Chairman, a call on 01529 414047 

Request from Rev. Heather

Sometimes people are admitted to hospital unexpectedly. Relatives may travel distances and then find they need to stay overnight and often find they have no toiletries. Would you like to help us to provide them with toothpaste, soap, wash bags, flannels, deodorants (both male and female), shower gel, toothbrushes?  

Stewards

We are desperately in need of new stewards to meet and greet at the beginning of services and to help, if necessary, during the service. If you would like to know more, please talk to Jaki Lowder or Rev. Mark

Church Cleaning

A few faithful people clean the church on a regular basis.  If you are able to help occasionally or regularly please have a word with Jaki

Request

Please would you save the plastic tops from milk containers as they can be collected to aid the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. There will be a container available in church.

 Would you like to celebrate or remember an event? It is now possible to sponsor the flowers in church on a Sunday morning. Your donation, however small, will help to pay for the flowers and your celebration/remembrance will be noted in the pew sheet on the Sunday in question. Please see either of the Churchwardens who will be happy to help.

Tea and cleaning rota

If you like to help out with the tea serving and cleaning rota, please talk to Jaki. She would be most happy to hear from you
