Pause and Ponder in the All Saints Church yard 1 June until Mid July 2022
We invite you to come and Pause and Ponder in the All Saints church yard. Janice Toplis, Helen Walley and Lindsay Nicklin have put their heads together to offer space to reflect in the churchyard and there are about 16 stations around this special space for you to do that. Please let other people know and come yourself to enjoy a reflective space during what we trust will be warmer weather. Thank you. Helen Walley
Pill Packet Recycling – Morningside Pharmacy are no longer taking blisterpacks for recycling, but they can still be taken to Superdrug in either the Cornmarket or Derbion branches. We will still receive them at St. John’s, but if you plan to visit the city centre it would help if you could take them with you to deposit at Superdrug.
CTM Prayer Walk – Thursday 7th July at 10.15am – Meet at Our Lady of Lourdes Car park. We will walk the local area praying for God’s blessing on the communities and businesses, and seeking to hear anything God may be saying to us. If you would like to take part, please contact me at email@example.com or phone 01332 239645 Thanks Ray
Date for the Diary – St. Andrews Radbourne summer fete is on Sunday 31st July. at 2pm at Radbourne Hall. More details soon.
The Prayer Chain. Sometimes we feel very alone. It may be ill health, or a difficult relationship or situation. We may even find it difficult to pray. At such times it is good to know that others are praying for us. It takes away that feeling of loneliness, and reassures that the Lord is with us, and will sustain us. If you feel that need of prayer, please contact Michael Huggett, who will inform members of the Prayer Chain of your request. We shall pray for you for a month, and you can then renew your request. Your request is confidential, and we shall keep it to ourselves. You can also request prayer for others, but you need their consent, if I am going to circulate details. Michael Huggett
Rest Stop Café – Coffee Morning for Ukraine. Thank you to all involved in organising and running the Coffee Morning last week. Thank you too for the many donations of tea, coffee, cakes, raffle prizes, etc and to all who came and thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Together we raised £257.20 for the people in Ukraine and Ukrainians settling here in Derby. The money was sent to the Derby Branch of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain and they have sent a lovely response, expressing their gratitude and appreciation, a copy of which is on the link noticeboard. Thank You. Kim
