Sunday 1st October 2023 – Follow Me: The Fishermen- Parish Communion

This week we are gathering together at 10:30am at St Paul’s Church for our Parish Communion service

We are kicking off a new sermon series called ‘Follow Me’ as we focus as a parish on what it means to follow Jesus with our whole lives. This will be the focus at both our weekly Communion services, so whether you join us on a Sunday at St Paul’s or a Wednesday at St Barnabas, we’ll be thinking about discipleship, following Jesus, together.

Our Scripture reading will be from Matthew 4:18-22

Giving

There are many in our parish who regularly give to the church through a Direct Debit to our bank account. If you do – firstly thank you so much for your generosity! It would be a great help though if you transferred across to using the Parish Giving Scheme. As charity rules, tax claims etc become more complicated it is increasingly becoming a big task to claim back the 20% we can get on top of your gift. Joining the Parish Giving Scheme makes it all so much easier for us – and easier for you too! Please speak to Zarine if you want to know more about it – or click the links!
