Notices

 

Earthquake Appeal

Last Sunday we had a collection after the service for victims of the Lombok earthquake. Thank you to all who contributed. On a quiet August Sunday we raised £260. This is the first step in our support this year for the charity www.shelterbox.org.

 

Decorating in Church

The redecoration of the two chapels is complete and there is now no peeling paintwork in Church! The Narthex will be repainted in September, following the lighting scheme completed this summer.

 

The Revd John Grundy

Congratulations to John Grundy on his ordination as a minister in the United Reformed Church on 4th August. He was inducted into his first post at St Andrew's URC, Brockley. John did an extended ecumenical placement with us in 2014/15 and has become part of the wider family of St Nick's.

 

Confirmation

More details to follow, but if you have not been confirmed then now is a good time to think about it. Confirmation is when we make the promises of baptism as an adult, and the bishop prays for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives. There will be a Confirmation Service in the autumn.

 

Relandscaping in the Church Gardens

As part of a scheme to create a permanent memorial to the MV Derbyshire, a Liverpool ship which sank in 1980 with the loss of 44 lives, work will begin soon to create a new scheme of paving and planting in the top lawn of the Gardens. A memorial sculpture will be part of this. Some of the pathways may have to be closed temporarily. The new Derbyshire Memorial Garden will be opened by Lord Prescott on Saturday 15th September.

 

Ecumenical Discussion at St Nick's

As part of the Roman Catholic Eucharistic Congress meeting in Liverpool in September, we shall be hosting an ecumenical event at St Nick's at 5.15 pm on Saturday 8th September. The renowned journalist and commentator Clifford Longley will be chairing a discussion in which the Archbishop of Liverpool, the Bishop of Liverpool and the Chair of the Methodist District will be reflecting on the Eucharist. We expect there to be much interest in this event: if you would like to attend then please book a (free) ticket here.

 

Church Barbecue

Advance notice: we are going to keep the summer going that little bit longer with a Barbecue (with related other food) in the Gardens after the Parish Eucharist on Sunday 9th September. Please put the date in your diaries!

 

Summer time

Whether or not the living is easy at this time of the year, many people in the congregation will be disappearing on holidays at various points. It can be hard to keep track of people, so if you are not able to get to Church because of illness then let us know and the clergy will come and visit! If you are away on holiday for a week or two, keep in touch with the Church with the e-bulletin. The September BBQ will be a time to bring everyone together again.

 

Micah Foodbank (formerly Hope+)

When you do your shopping, please remember that the Foodbank is always in need of donations of non-perishable food. Donations can be dropped off at the Church Office during the week and on Sundays.

Visiting

If you know of anyone who is unwell or would just simply appreciate a visit, then please contact Fr Fergus: frfergus@livpc.co.uk..

 

Gift Aid

St Nick's is grateful for all donations, but if you are a UK taxpayer and you put your gift in one of our Gift Aid envelopes (found at the back of the Church) and add your name and address, then the Church can get a further 25% of your gift back from the Government.

Similarly, if you make donations to the Church by monthly standing order, and you are a UK taxpayer but have not yet completed a Gift Aid form and sent it to Pauline Lewis, our Gift Aid Secretary, then we would be most grateful if you would do this so that we can increase the value of your monthly donation by 25% at no cost or inconvenience to you.  Your name/details do not get passed to anybody and there is nothing further for you to do.

We encourage regular members of the congregation to join the Planned Giving Scheme.  Please contact Pauline Lewis for further details.
