ALL SAINTS CAFÉ– due to the very high prevalence of Covid locally, we have reluctantly decided to suspend the café on Wednesday mornings to protect volunteers and attendees, we hope to start again in February when the peak of this latest wave of the virus will have passed. Accordingly, refreshments for now will not be served after the Church services. Hopefully this will restart again in February when this wave of the Virus has passed.
PCC MEMBERS– The next PCC meeting will be held on Monday 17th January 7pm.
RIP FRANCES EATON- Our love, sympathy and prayers to the family and friends of Frances Eaton who passed away in December. The funeral will be at All Saints on 26th January at 12pm. The service will be available on Zoom with the normal Sunday logins.
ST JOHN’S REST STOP CAFÉ- Friday mornings, 10am-12noon, outside if the weather permits, or in the Link. Do join us for Tea/Coffee, friendly conversation, and of course delicious homemade cakes. If you are able to help in any way, please contact Alun

HOLOCAUST SPEAKER– All Saints’ Church 24th January at 7.30pm, free entry. Derek Nieman was shocked to discover that his grandfather had been a Nazi Stormtrooper responsible for organising slave labour in concentration camps in the Holocaust.

RIP CHARLES PAINE- Our love, sympathy and prayers to the family of Charles Paine who passed away on 6th January. The funeral service will be at Markeaton Crematorium on Monday 31st January at 11am.
NEW TREASURER NEEDED– Paul Cheetham had informed the PCC last Summer of his intention to step down as Treasurer from the end of 2021. During the Autumn the Vicar and PCC have tried to come up with a way of handling the finances that wouldn’t require it all to not fall on one person’s shoulders alone. However, we do still need someone who is willing to take on this role supported by three others. The particular need is to operate the online banking and to deal with suppliers where needed and be prepared to report to the PCC. If you have any questions please speak to Peter, Ian or Janice (Church Wardens)
