This week’s notices

Stewardship letters please take your letter from the back of church, and return your pledge cards for 2019 the box provided.  Very many thanks to those who have already done so.

All Souls please add names to the sheets at the back of church for those you would like to be remembered at our Service of Thanksgiving at 4pm on Sunday 28th October.

Indonesia Appeal.  Sadly, you will all be well aware of the current devastation in Indonesia as a result of the recent earthquake and tsunami. It is our intention to forward a contribution to the British Red Cross for their appeal for much needed support in the area. We already have some funds available for this purpose, from the Patronal Lunch last year and the recent Harvest Lunch, and there is an opportunity at the back of church if you wish to be included with a personal contribution. Donations may be gift-aided with the usual envelopes, but please make sure that you mark them ‘Indonesia Appeal’. Any cheques should be made payable to ‘All Saints’ Church, Four Oaks’. It will be our intention to top up our payment to £500, which will be sent after this morning’s services.

Christmas Market 17th November   We are now counting down to the Market with the request for items for the stalls.  Please see the article with all the details in the October Church Magazine.  Any items donated must be good quality, new or nearly new, and in a clean condition.  Thank you.
