Notices for 25 June

Keeping the Church locked
We are having trouble with a visitor(s) to the Church. The PCC has decided to keep the Church locked, except for services or by prior arrangement with Fr Edmund or Lynda, the Parish Secretary

Please can I have some?
“I would like to be part of the St George’s Church community. I would like to take communion and take one more step on the journey of faith.”
There is an opportunity at the beginning of September to start thinking and taking that further step in faith. Bishop William will come on Sunday
26 November at 9.30am for a confirmation service.

Fr Edmund already has details of some people wishing to take this next step. If you would like to join a group preparing for confirmation please have a word with him after the service or e-mail him on edmund.betts1@btinternet.com.
