Notices

Faith in Pictures

This year's Christian Basics course will be called 'Faith in Pictures' and will explore the themes of Jesus, the Bible, the Church, and the World through art and discussion. The course dates are 29th September, 6th October, 13th October, 20th October and 27th October, and all sessions start at approximately 11.30 am for no more than an hour. 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.

Children's Ministry

Last Sunday we launched the first part of our new Sunday School provision, which will now take place on the first three Sundays of the month. The fourth (and sometimes fifth) are intentionally left as a time when people of all ages spend the service together. From October we are also going to trial a group for babies and toddlers (under three). This increase in provision for children's ministry also complements the other occasional special services which are aimed at younger people.

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.

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.

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.
