General Notices 

CHRISTMAS SERVICES: This year we shall not be having a Christmas Eve Communion service or a service on Christmas Day. Information about Christmas Services at our neighbouring churches is included in the Diary section in the centre of the December Clarion. The Carol Service will be held in the afternoon of Sunday 22nd December at 3.00 pm. We hope that many of the families whose children have made Christingles at Messy Church on the previous Saturday will be able to attend this service.

The Loxley Silver Band Concert raised £562.00 for SITraN. This is a remarkable sum, and will be most appreciated. Thanks to everyone for giving their support.

The Big Tearfund Quiz night at St Chad’s, attracted a large number of participants. Unfortunately, the two quiz stalwarts from Woodseats, who made up a team with folk from Norton, did not win this time. However our friend Nick Seaman (supported by his children) was part of the team that did carry off the prize

Envelopes are still available for your gifts towards the Methodist World Mission Fund, if you have not yet been able to make a contribution. This Fund it stands ready to respond to requests that come from the overseas churches

UPDATE: The Supper Club AGM agreed to donate £100 for the Mills family fund. This helped the total to reach the £5000 target needed to get an extra bedroom for Sam. This sum has been raised by 67 supporters. Well done everyone!.

When organising a meeting can you please ensure that the Bookings Secretary is made aware of the date & time, particularly if the meeting takes place in the evening. If the meeting is to take place in a room on the lower floor please also advise Wendy, manager of the pre-school. Will the organiser of such meetings  please arrange for the rooms to be left in the state in which they were found - clean & tidy & ready for the next user.

Please help with economies by ensuring lighting & heating are not left on when not required.
