Every Sunday morning at 9.30am unless otherwise stated
Thank you to our decorators who have been willing and able to decorate the windowsills with flowers for the concert and then tidy them and add produce ready for Harvest Festival on 7th. The produce will be sorted after the Sunday service – after preparation of some gifts for delivery within the village, the fresh produce will go to Westhorpe Hall Nursing Home and the dried and tinned goods together with the monetary collection to the Food Bank in Stowmarket. If you could help with the collecting together, sorting and distributing of the produce and flowers we would be very pleased to hear from you – just have a word with Liz D, Margaret J-E, or any PCC member. Thank you.
Thank you to all who helped on Saturday 8th September for the Cycle Ride day, both our cyclists and those who sat in the church with little to do as we had even fewer visiting cyclists than last year. If our cyclists haven’t already seen you to collect their sponsor money they will be calling very soon!
The Monday Morning Group will continue as usual on the 1st & 3rd Mondays, meeting in the Village Hall on 1st & 15th at 10.15 for coffee followed by our discussion. We now meet at 9.45 for a prayer meeting before coffee. You will be made welcome if you would like to join us, either at 9.45 or 10.15.
The PCC will meet on Thursday 11th October. If anyone has anything they want the PCC to discuss, please notify the Secretary, Mary Paine (767897) so that she can include it on the agenda.
