A new rota is shortly being drawn up and it would be good to have some additional people involved. If there are sufficient numbers it is a duty every 2 months and you would work in pairs welcoming and giving books to the congregation. You could also be involved in taking the collection if you wished to. If you would like to join the team or find out more, please have a word with Barbara Hancox or Malcolm

Young persons Confirmation Group
After much trying to find a convenient time for a young peoples confirmation group there was no day easy for everyone during the week. Therefore we shall try to do this on a Sunday afternoon between 4 pm and 4.45 pm. The first session will be on Sunday 20th October.
Over the past several weeks, we have advertised in the newsletter for a volunteer to co-ordinate an autumn fayre for us. As no-one has offered to take on this role, this year PCC have made the decision not to hold an autumn fayre this year. Given that this means our income is likely to be over £1000 less than might have been expected we are looking to find ways to lessen such a shortfall and hope we may be able to organise maybe 3 smaller events during the coming year which could attract both church members and others and be methods of raising money. If you have any ideas, which might be attractive and/or would be happy to organise a single event please speak to Malcolm or the churchwardens.
1st Prize No. 43 S. Wick £17.50
2nd Prize No. 3 A Curtis £6.00
MacMillian Coffee Morning
A very big Thank You to everyone at St. Mary’s who supported our joint coffee morning by making cakes, helping and attending on the day. Special thanks to Jean Hudson whose idea it was. We really enjoyed working together. An amazing £552 was raised for MacMillan Cancer Care. Thanks.
