Notices

Faith in Pictures

This year's Christian Basics course,'Faith in Pictures' continues today at 11.30 am and further sessions follow on 20th and 27th October. At the end of the course, there will be the opporunity to take the next step in Church life by getting confirmed. If you are interested then please speak to the clergy.

Louis Johnson

Louis still has the best part of seven months with us, but we can now announce that after ordination he will serve as a Curate of the St Luke in the City Team (St Bride's, St Michael in the City, and St Dunstan's).

All Souls' Service

Our annual All Souls' Service will take place at 6.00 pm on Sunday 27th October. During the service we shall remember the departed and there will be an opportunity to come forward and light candles. Music will be provided by the St Nick's Singers. If you would like someone remembered at this service, please sign the list in the Narthex on a Sunday, or contact the Church Office.

Church Christmas Card

Before you buy your cards from another charity, our Sunday School have produced designs for cards which will be on sale in packs of 10 later this month.

Harvest Festival - 13th October

Following our usual practice, we shall be supporting the Sisters of Charity in Seel Street with donations of tea, coffee, sugar and UHT milk. Tins and other dried food will go to the Micah FoodBank. Donations towards Harvest flowers would be very welcome: please see Monica Lawrence.

Fr Fergus's latest book

Priests de la Resistance is published this week. It explores the lives of a number of twentieth-century priests who were active in their opposition to fascism. From wartime Athens to sixties Alabama, Vichy France to military dictatorship in Brazil, these are the priests who dared to speak out (and act out) against those who would persuade us that hate is stronger than love.

Carol Services

It is only two months until the Carol Service season begins. At the moment we have nineteen services booked in during December. If you could help as a welcomer and steward at any of these, please contact Pauline Lewis.

Peter Tatchell

The well-known human rights activist Peter Tatchell will be speaking at the Parish Church on Wednesday 16th October. This is a free event but we are asking people to book a ticket on Eventbrite.

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. St Nick's supports the Foodbank at every level, with donations of food, with volunteering, and Fr Crispin is a Trustee. The summer can be a difficult time for families as there are no school meals, so please do remember them in your weekly shop.

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.
