Table top sale - many thanks to everyone who supported last week's sale which raised 122 for Church funds.

Children's Christmas Toy Collection - thank you for all the beautiful toys donated so far. They are incredible! The final day for collection is next Sunday (16th December) to allow the nurses to get them delivered to the families in time for Christmas. (Jeannette)

Parish Charity Christmas Card: Every year, instead of writing individual cards to give to our friends in the parish, we have established a tradition of signing one large card to everyone. The saving made on the cost of packs of cards we donate to the Little Sisters of The Poor in Bristol. A card will be available in the hall from next Sunday for everyone to sign, together with a box for you to donate - if you wish - it's not obligatory! The card will be displayed on the Church Notice Board from today (Sunday 9th December).

APF Red Boxes: The amount collected this half year was 371.07 bringing the total for the year to 763.31. This has all now been banked and a special thank you to all box holders for your generosity. (Jeannette)

Come and help make our Church beautiful for Christmas! Wreath making, music and mulled wine in the Church hall on Friday 21st December at 7.30 pm. All welcome! Thank you. (Rose).

On Saturday 22nd December at 2pm there will be a party for the children. As well as having some fun and food (hot & cold), they will spend some time in the church to add their own contribution to the Christmas celebrations church decorations. You are welcome to bring food to share but it is not required. All parish and visiting families welcome! To have an idea of numbers, please let Ellen or Mary know if you will (or might) be coming, the more the merrier!!

Mulled Wine Sunday! On Sunday 23rd December, as well as coffee, we shall be sharing mulled wine and mince pies - free of charge - after Mass.
