Annual parochial church meeting

Please login to Zoom using the details below, 8pm THIS Thursday.

Please note that whilst it'll be super to see as many Christ Church regulars as possible, only those on the Electoral Roll are permitted to vote should that be necessary, (we know who you are).

There is now NO need to sign up in advance, just turn up on the night. 

I apologise but I made some errors on the Reports that were available as of last week. Thankfully the errors were easily rectified and will be highlighted at the meeting. If you would like to read the 2019 Reports (v2) beforehand, please just request an email copy anytime between now and Thursday 12noon.

CROSSTEACH FUNDRAISER

Why not treat yourself to a lovely and original piece of art, with all proceeds going to crossteach. 

All bids are anonymous and the auction is online here, until this Saturday.

 

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

ARE YOU QUIETLY SITTING ON a MUSICAL GIFT?

As we prepare for having more live-music in our services, we'd love to hear from any who might like to be involved. Whether you're rusty and wanting tips over time, or professional and happy to get stuck in, do please get in touch (we're especially in need of instrumentalists).

Gardening help

Help tidying up the grounds, especially covering the beds in the wood chips, greatly appreciated.

Please get in touch if you can.

PASTORAL CARE

In these strange times where we don't see one another often, I'm keen to book in to hear how you are.

Please email to book in a one hour catch up, (covid-guidelines permitting and in a socially distanced safe manner, perhaps realistically over Zoom).

RESOURCES

ADVENT BLOCKS - LAST CHANCE TO ORDER

A brilliant way of keeping Christ at the centre of your Christmas. Aimed at families but suitable for any mantelpiece - have a look and pre-order here.  I’m plugging now as I think they’ll sell out like hot cakes (or mince pies?!) - to add yours to a larger church order for discounts and delivery etc, please get in touch.
