Notices

 

Evening Prayer

Evening Prayer is now said in Church every Wednesday afternoon at 5.00 pm.   All are welcome to drop in for this simple said service.

 

Parish Bank Details

Rather frustratingly, the bank has changed our Sort Code.   If you give to the Church by Standing Order in our Planned Giving Scheme, then you will need to change the details with your bank.   There are letters for all the congregation (those who do as well as those who do not give by standing order) with details of the change.

 

Liverpool Santa Dash

Please note that the Santa Dash takes place on Sunday 3rd December.   There are sheets in the Narthex giving details of the route and times of road closures.

 

Autumn Course at St Nick's

As we prepare to read St Mark's Gospel over the next year on Sunday mornings, there will be a short course (just three sessions) to introduce the themes.   This will be at 11.30 am in the Alexandra Room on 19th November, 26th November and 3rd December.

 

VC Centenary Stones

The final VC Centenary Stone to go down in the Church Gardens will be at 12 noon on 30th November (Cyril Gourley VC).

 

City Carols with Merseyside Police Band

will be at noon on Wednesday 13th December and promises to be a popular event once again.   Please bring your donations of jams and chutneys for the Christmas stall or if you would like to donate a bottle for the raffle prize please see Pauline Lewis or Margaret Sadler.  Likewise, if you can help in any way let us know.

 

Volunteers Needed for Church Pre-Christmas Clean

on the morning of Saturday 2nd December.   Please let Roger Merchant know if you are able to help.  The more helpers the quicker the job will be done.  Don't forget your Marigolds!   Refreshments will be provided.

 

Shared Reading Group

Over the last few years we have worked on a few projects with The Reader (website).  Our own Shared Reading Group is held on Wednesday evenings in the Alexandra Room from 6.00 pm until 7.30 pm.  Contact the Church Office (email enquiries@livpc.co.uk) for more details.   All are welcome.

 

Flowers in Church

Throughout the year our team of Flower Ladies (though men are welcome! - please see Monica) keep the Church decorated.   They ensure that every special occasion, from weddings to civic services, is enhanced.  If you would like to donate to the flower fund, or have flowers to commemorate or celebrate a particular date, please see Monica Lawrence.

 

Our weekly e-bulletin

goes out each Wednesday.   If you didn't receive it and would like to, then please click here.

 

Little Nick's

Our pre-school toddler group has resumed on Wednesday mornings at 10.00 am.

 

Liverpool Plinth

After a long period of preparation, we have finally launched our 'Liverpool Plinth' project.   There is an outline of the project on the BBC News website (here).

 

Hope+ Foodbank

There is usually a notice about the Foodbank somewhere in Church life, but the Church Council feel that it has become like pastel wallpaper in its visibility.   Please remember that our donations help feed those most in need in the city, and a few tins/jars/packets from individuals every week or month can have a tremendous cumulative effect.   Donations can be dropped off at the Church Office every day.

 

Visiting

If you know of anyone who is unwell or would just simply appreciate a visit, please let the Clergy know.

 

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.
