PLEASE PRAY for the world and our responsibility to be good stewards for God’s creation. Help us to do what we can to safeguard the natural world for the generations that follow. Help us to be sure that the end will be peace in God’s kingdom.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – John 10, 22-30
Amidst all the other voices that evoke fear, make demands, or give advice, the voice of the good shepherd is a voice of promise -- a voice that calls us by name and claims us as God’s own.

GIFT AID IT!
A meaningful amount of our income as a Parish (£13,000 in 2018) comes from the government as gift aid on our giving. If you are a UK tax payer please make sure your generosity is matched by the treasury by setting up a standing order or using the giving envelopes, and letting your treasurer know you are happy for gift aid to be reclaimed. It’s equivalent to a lot of coffee mornings for a lot less work!
