There will be a Bring and Share lunch after the service. Please sign up in the hall. We are asked to provide the Savoury items and St Giles will bring along the Sweets.
From September, we will be trialling a new running order for Shine. This slightly new format will endeavour to bring more families to Shine and allow the 10.30 a.m. congregation to join us for coffee and pastries at 10.15 a.m. before that service begins at 10.45 a.m. upstairs.
Shine will begin with the celebration at 9.30 a.m. followed by craft and then coffee and pastries.
To all JMA and World Mission collectors
It’s the time of year for counting the contents of your boxes. Please could you hand them to Heather or leave them in the Church office for her to pick up. Thank you for your help.
St Crux – it has been booked – 22 November
The date offered for us to hire St Crux has been accepted, so please put the date in you diary. This will be an opportunity for us to raise funds for our church. Please consider whether you can help on the day, bake, or donate goods we can sell.
The day should be a busy one in York city centre as the St Nicholas Christmas Fair should be taking place, so it would be great if you could come up with some pre-Christmassy ideas.
Janet Ireland and Heather Hewson are going to organise a scarf stall. Please save any scarves…winter/summer ….silk/wool, and give them to Janet or Heather any time before 22 November.
Poppy Update – August
A group of us were tasked by MEG (Mission Enabling Group) to co-ordinate a display of poppies along Main Street to line the parade route of the uniformed organisations for Remembrance Day 2018 (Sunday 11 November) along with displays at both churches.
We have reached and surpassed our first target of 2000 poppies made – well done and thank you, everyone. We will be happy to receive any poppies that are still being made; there is a box in the entrance lobby.
We are now planning some ‘putting together’ sessions to bring the poppies together onto wreaths, netting and garlands. Please come along to any or all of the following sessions:
Wednesday 12 September at St Giles from 10.30-15.30, then every Wednesday same time, same place.
Sunday 2 September at CMC at 14.00-17.00
Saturday 6 October at CMC at 14.00-16.00, during the Cameo session.
We will also need a big group of willing volunteers to help install the wreaths, nets and garlands into place along Main Street during the afternoon and evening on Thursday 8 November. Please put this in your diary and come along and help if you are able.
And also a similar big group of people to take the wreaths, netting and garlands down on Monday 12 November (after the Remembrance Event) before we are able to make the donated poppies into blankets that are sent to needy situations in the world.
From the Poppy Project Group – Avrial, Tricia, Jo-Anne and Rev Julia
