We are coming to the end of our ‘Proclaiming With’ sermon series concluding with Paul’s proclamation that he counts everything as loss in comparison to knowing Jesus! Our Scripture reading will be from Philippians 3:1-11

Follow Me Follow On
In October we are starting a new sermon series and a whole Parish focus on our discipleship – what did Jesus mean by ‘Follow me’ and how can we do that in 2023? To aid us in our thinking we will start a new zoom discussion group. It will start on Tuesday October 3rd at 5pm. You can find our Zoom link here it will be no more than an hour. Come with questions and thoughts from the Sunday sermon!!

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!
