Christmas Services

We are planning the rotas for the Christmas services. As some are away from home at Christmas we are looking for volunteers to assist with helping at the various services. If you are around this Christmas and are able to help in some way please let Rev Mark or Jaki know.

 

Reverse Advent Calendar

You are invited to put together a Christmas box for the Sleaford Larder to give out. The idea is that you make a box, cover it with Christmas paper and then each day in advent you buy a festive food item for a family in need and place it in the box. Then near to Christmas we will collect the boxes and deliver them to the foodbank. See Rev Mark or Carole for more info.

 

Autumn Pilgrim Course

We continue our 6-week Pilgrim course on Mondays at 7.30pm. Please come along if you would like to attend this very popular course and let us know if you need a lift. For more information please see Rev Mark.

 

Would you like to celebrate or remember an event? It is now possible to sponsor the flowers in church on a Sunday morning. Your donation, however small, will help to pay for the flowers and your celebration/remembrance will be noted in the pew sheet on the Sunday in question. Please see either of the Churchwardens who will be happy to help.

 

Tea and cleaning rota

If you like to help out with the tea serving and cleaning rota, please talk to Jaki. She would be most happy to hear from you

 

Sponsor an Organ Pipe

If you haven’t already done so, you are invited to sponsor an organ pipe to help pay for the recent refurbishment of the organ. Please see the display at the back of church and speak to Sally-Anne or Rev Mark. So far we have raised in excess of £300 in sponsorship with more donations promised. Click here for more details

50/50 club

One of our church fund-raisers is the 50-50 club. It costs £12 a year, with half the money going to the church and the other half is prize money. If you would like to join, please see Doug or Jean Cornford.

 

During the year we are putting on a number of fun events and fund raising events. We would like to put a small group together to help plan the events. If you are interested in helping with a single event or with the planning of our year ahead, please have a chat with Rev Mark or Carole

Christmas Shoe Boxes

For many years we have supported the Samaritan Purse charity that brighten the lives of many children at Christmas by providing them with presents in a shoe box. If you would like to help this year, the empty boxes are now available from the back of the church or Jean Cornford. Please return filled boxes by November 20th.

 

Stewards

We are reviewing our rota of stewards who assist in our Sunday services. We would like to reach the stage where each group of two stewards are only on duty once every two months. To achieve this, we need a few more people to volunteer to join the rota. Please would you think and pray about this, and consider whether you would be able to become one of our stewards.

 

We are also in need of people to help with the refreshment rota on a Sunday and the cleaning rota. Please see Jaki if you are interested.
