Notices

Worshipping together

All are warmly invited to join in worship at the Parish Church, either in person or by sharing in the live-stream of the service. Chairs in church are placed on their own or in housegold groups. Other measures to mitigate risks include hand-sanitizer stations, a one-way system, separate entry/exit doors, test and trace recording and Communion brought to the congregation. However, please remember that we are all strongly encouraged to wear a face mask. Although shielding officially ends this week, those who are unable to return to church at the moment can join a live-stream of the service on our YouTube channel.

R I P

Margaret Peace died peacefully on Thursday afternoon after a long illness. Details of Margaret's funeral will follow when known.

The Church Flower Fund

is in urgent need of donations. If you would like to make a donation, please put it in an envelope and give to the the churchwardens or one of the clergy. Thank you.

Confirmation

We do not know what arrangements will be made for Confirmation in the next few months, but we already have a number of candidates for the autumn. If you are interested in being confirmed then please speak to one of the clergy. We hope to follow up with details as soon as possible of how or when a bishop might visit us!

Micah Foodbank

The food donation box in the Narthex is still attracting regular offerings and is being emptied regularly. The need continues, so please do donate if you can. If you need donations picking up from your house, then contact the clergy.

St Nick's Corona Anthology

Fr Fergus is putting together a selection of prayers, reflections, and poems to be collated into a ‘St Nick’s Corona Anthology’. Maybe you’re using your time at home to produce beautiful verse or perhaps you’ve found a particular prayer or passage helpful at this juncture- if so we’d love to know. Please email all to frfergus@livpc.co.uk and we’ll put things together into a resource for everyone.

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.
