CARERS SOUP ‘N’ SUPPORT

The next meeting is on Thursday, 4th October at 12 noon when the speaker will be from I-care Community Meals.  The format will be slightly different – we will be having soup first, then a talk and tastings of the meals from I-care followed by cakes, scones, fruit etc.  We are also expecting a visit from Margaret Greenwood MP.  Earlier this year she expressed concern about social isolation amongst carers. As always, anyone with current or recent caring experience is very welcome.

HOYLAKE BIBLE SOCIETY ACTION GROUP

This Group are holding an Italian Evening – to include supper and entertainment on Saturday, 6th October at 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. at St. Hildeburgh’s Parish Hall, Stanley Road, Hoylake.  The cost is £10 per person (bring your own drinks).  Admission by ticket only – available from Jill Cumming.

HARVEST THEME

Throughout October our morning services will follow a theme of “Loving……” as follows:

7th       “……………our world”

14th “……….…..our neighbours”

 (with a focus on Mercy Ships – not all our neighbours are next door)

21st “………………..…..each other”

 The service will include communion.

28th  “……………….our God”

HARVEST FESTIVAL

Throughout September there will be a flip chart in the foyer with some PritStick glue sticks nearby – why?  Because we’d like to have a display of photos or pictures you’ve found in magazines or anywhere else of things in the natural world that makes you go “wow”.  It can be an animal, scene, anything.  Over the coming Sundays please bring your pictures and stick them on the flip chart.  If you can’t find a picture then just write a word.  If the page is full then turn over and start a new page.  The uniformed organisations have been asked to contribute so this can be a real church wide activity and by 7th October we’ll have a great display.

HARVEST FLOWERS

A reminder that volunteers are needed the morning of Saturday, 6th October.  You don’t have to be a flower arranger, but if you would like to help in any way (being a “gofer” – making the coffee, clearing up afterwards etc.) you will be most welcome.  Please speak to Sue Gladden for more information.

HARVEST GOODS

Donations of non-perishable items in tins, packets, jars etc. will be gratefully received on the 7th October.  Donations will be divided between the Charles Thompson Mission and the Women’s Refuge.
