August is for many the month of holidays and for us at church a month where we have fewer meetings! I hope you all have a good month and find some time to rest and draw breath. We had a good planning morning at All Saints’ in July and look forward to one for St Bartholomew’s on September 19th. You will find a copy of the presentation about the All Saints’ morning on the website if you would like to get a flavour of what we discussed.
I had an interesting letter from the Community of the Sisters of the Church who we support with donations of food and I thought you might be interested to know how much they value your support . Over the past year they have seen an increase in the number of people who need our help,and also an increase in donations for food and money for which they are profoundly grateful. From mid-January to the end of April they gave out 2,997 food parcels and spent £8,017 on food to supplement the food donations that people sent. They also topped up the gas and electricity keys forpeople in desperate need in the cold weather which cost and extra £880. They are keen to pass on their heartfelt thanks and the thanks of those people they help.
I too would like to add my thanks and to encourage you to help us support the Sisters’ ‘Loaves and Fishes’ Project Harvest Appeal 2015. Looking ahead our harvest services at All Saints’ and St Bartholomew’s will be on Sunday October 4th at 8.30am, 10am and 6pm and you would be very welcome to join us and bring your gift for those in need.
Love and prayers,

So you think Church is Boring?
Sunday Club is a place for young people to get together, get real, get connected to God in a fun way.
We meet together regularly for a range of services in different styles and hope there is something in our month to allow all our church members to come close to God.
