Setting God’s People Free – as you know, the different groups have been working on a variety of ideas, and we feel that before we move forward in a major way it would be good to pray together as a wider church community. Unfortunately the picnic due to be held next Sunday 19thSeptember, has had to be postponed till a yet to be decided date. We will let you know the new date as soon as we can.
New website update – Our new website is live. Visit https://mickleoveranglicans.org.uk The old websites now redirect you to the new site. The team would welcome comments and feedback. Email firstname.lastname@example.org Please note there is no “log out” from the members page, your computer / phone will continue to give you access for seven days after you enter the password, so please do not visit the members page from a public or shared device.
Rotas – We are introducing an updated system for assistance at the 10am service in St. John’s. Rebekah, our Admin Assistant working out of the All Saints office, will be drawing together a monthly rota for us. She will email out requests for availability to those who have previously helped. At present this is people to read the two Bible readings, lead prayers and operate the ‘clicker’ for the Powerpoint slides. (When restrictions are eased further we will discuss the other duties with the rota owners.) Please respond to Rebekah when contacted and if not available, a non availability reply to her will help tremendously. Finally, if you do not already assist with these duties, and wish to be asked, please talk to us. Training provided! Alun and Paul.
Alpha – We will be running Alpha Online at 7.00pm on Tuesday evenings from 28th September to 7th December. Please will you make a note of these dates and most importantly think and pray about who to invite. It would be great if you could join us with whoever you invite but if you are not available then, rest assured, the people you invite will be made very welcome. Please have a look at and forward the information in this link: https://sway.office.com/0UodaNBwfByy21pL?ref=Link
Great North Run 2021 A massive massive thank you to everyone who supported myself Donna Robinson and Joy Andrews in our fundraising for the Royal National Institute for the Blind. We are overwhelmed by the sponsorship amount. The final total raised will be over £1100. The support on the day was brilliant, a great atmosphere with thousands of people cheering us on. We got a mention on TV before the run, and Joy was seen on TV lining up at the start. Special thanks to our cheer leader Sandra Longbone for her support on the day which encouraged us greatly. As for the run itself…. BRUTAL. But we made it. Kim
