Notices

 

Boom!

It was announced on Friday that Fr Crispin is to be made an Honorary Canon of Liverpool Cathedral. This is an important recognition of the role of the Parish Church, as well as our relationship with the Cathedral and Diocese. He will be installed later in the autumn.

 

Ethel Elms RIP

Many will have heard that Ethel died earlier in the week. Her funeral will be here on Thursday 25th October at 12.30 pm followed by cremation at Anfield Crematorium at 2.00 pm.

 

Congratulations

to Mark and Hannah Lewis (and Bob and Pauline as well) on the birth of Matilda Bessie on Wednesday.

 

Prayer List

The Prayer Diary in the weekly leaflet is important to us in our daily services and many people use it at home as well. We are about to revise the list. If you would like a name to continue on the weekly prayer cycle then please contact the office (by phone or email) by the end of the month. The new list will start on 4th November.

 

Urban Harvest - 21st October

We are requesting donations of UHT milk, coffee, teabags and sugar to be shared between the Sisters of Mercy and the Food Bank. Also, we would be grateful for donations of money for flowers to decorate the church. Money to Churchwardens or Monica. Thank you.

 

All Souls' Service

So that we are not defeated by the City Fireworks Display, we are moving our All Souls' Eucharist forward by a week to 6.00 pm on Sunday 28th October. A list will be available in the Narthex on Sundays until then (or in the Church Office during the week) for the names of the departed whom you would like to be in the prayers at that service.

 

Excitement has grown ...

about the launch of Fr Fergus's book 'A Field Guide to English Clergy'. It is in book shops but you can buy it at our Liverpool launch with the Bishop on Wednesday 28th November at 7.30 pm.

 

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.

 

Sunday School

normally takes place on the first Sunday of the month, but because of the disruption today will take place instead on Sunday 14th October.

 

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.
