ContactMost subscribers to the ‘Contact’ magazine have now made a donation and the editor would like to thank everyone for their generous contributions. In particular, the church has received two very generous donations – one of £100 (a regular annual donation in recent years from one of our subscribers) and another of £50 which was specifically sent towards the maintenance of the photocopier, which has been struggling with the workload!
If you have yet to make a donation for your subscription to Contact please pass it on to Stella Petitt or one of the Churchwardens. Please also let us know if you, or anyone you know, would like to start receiving a Contact Magazine regularly.
THE KING'S CUPBOARD
Thank you to everyone who puts items of food in the box for the King’s Cupboard. It is a very worthwhile thing to do. The food is taken regularly to the food bank and really appreciated. There are leaflets available explaining more about the work that they are doing at the Foodbank and how people can get involved.
Occasionally someone has left a bag of food outside the vestry door which is presumably for the King’s Cupboard. However, many of the items have been past their use-by date and have had to be thrown away. Please could all food donated be in date and brought into the church or the Cantelupe Centre, and handed into the office, and not left outside. Thank you.
Gift Aid enables the Church to reclaim tax which has been paid on any gift to the Church. If you do not already take part in this please consider whether you can help in this way.
Trevor Beighton would like to thank everyone who has brought their used stamps and put them in the box in the church foyer over the past year. These are passed on to the Church Mission Society and help to fund their work. Please continue to support the CMS in this way over the coming year, and please remember to leave a good margin around the stamps. Many thanks.
