ALTERNATIVE ADVENT

Maggie has shared a lovely idea for churches to give something away to mark the season of Advent, rather than eating all the sweets in the Advent calendar. We hope you will join us in bringing a gift/gifts to church each Sunday during Advent; either food, especially Christmassy food, to be passed to the Foodbank or the following items to pass on to the Christopher Centre and the Salvation Army- female toiletries, especially deodorant, women's undies, sanitary products and socks. There will be a basket at the back of church to collect them and Sam Kinnard has volunteered to make sure they go to the right place.

This  event will have a Christmas theme to it. Please come along and support our last Saturday coffee morning of 2019

The coffee mornings are a  wonderful place to catch up with friends, buy home made cakes and take a chance on the  raffle.  They also  help with the income of the church and the last three coffee mornings have raised a magnificent £721.00

Thank you to everyone who has supported them.

Church Flowers at St. Gregory's

I feel very privileged in heading up a team of such talented and supportive flower arrangers at St Gregory's.    The number of people involved has increased over the last twelve months which means that at Festival times we are able to decorate even more of this lovely building.  The wonderful facilities which we now have in the tower make the work that we do so much easier. There are so many people who visit the church and we hope that the flowers which are regularly in the church and in the porch help to make them feel welcome, as well as give pleasure to the congregation.

I should add at this point that we wouldn't be able to do what we do if it wasn't for the generosity of so many of the congregation who donate money towards the cost of the flowers, both for the festivals and throughout the year. The Team is extremely grateful for those donations as we rely on them completely to achieve the results that we do. In the past year there were quite a few weddings and the flowers for these have been enjoyed by many.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who help, in whatever way, to make the church look so lovely and to earn The Team so many compliments.

Remember if you would like to help with the arranging at St. Gregory's do contact me or speak to one of The Team.

Please let me know as soon as possible of unavailability or if you need to swap.
