Notices

 

Visiting Preacher - the Primus of Scotland

Our preacher at the Parish Eucharist on Sunday 23 June will be the Most Revd Mark Strange, Bishop of Moray, Ross and Caithness, and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church. Please come and hear Bishop Strange as he prepares for a meeting of Anglican Bishops from across the world.

 

A Message from Fr Fergus

"A very sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to making my priesting weekend such an occasion. The gifts were most generous, the food was delicious, and the sense of kindness, welcome, and joy emanating from St. Nicks was tangible. Thank you all so very much."

 

Theatre in the Gardens

Dean Sullivan is using his talent and his connections to direct a theatrical performance in the Gardens this summer:27 & 28 July. Please do buy tickets and invite friends; bring your own picnic or Ma Boyle's will be selling food for the performances as well as running a bar. Nearer the time, we shall also be looking for volunteers to help with Front of House and some stage management. In the meantime, book your tickets with Eventbrite (link to the News/Events page) or email tickets@livpc.co.uk.

 

Liverpool Plinth

The sculpture has now changed on the Plinth and the unveiling took place on Friday. The second occupant of the Plinth is called "Split Decisions" by the artist Sam Shendi. The narrative around the sculpture is on mental health, and there is more information about this, the artist, and the other shortlisted entries in an exhibition in the Narthex.

 

Liverpool Bach Collective

The Bach Collective will be performing in Church again on Saturday 20th July. Unusually for them, this will not be within an act of worship and so it is necessary to buy tickets in advance. There are fliers in the Narthex with more information.

 

Visits and Pastoral Contact

If you haven't seen someone in Church for awhile or you notice that someone could do with a telephone call or a visit - or if you would like a visit yourself - you can contact the Pastoral Team on pastoralteam@livpc.co.uk and one of our team will get in touch. If you do not have access to email then you can contact either one of the Team Leaders, Clare Ledingham or Sarah Wrightson, whose numbers are available from the Parish Office. Alternatively you are welcome to contact the clergy directly.

 

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.

 

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.
