Rita will have boxes of CHRISTMAS CARDS on view after this morning’s service for you to order from if you wish. All profits for Church funds.

The PRAYER GROUP will meet in Church on Thursday, 19 October at 2 pm. All are welcome.

Once again this year our food gifts throughout October and from our Harvest Festival will be to support the DAILY BREAD FOOD LARDER. Bookmarks with suitable items will be available. Please give generously.

In October we will be launching the DEVELOPING DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAMME (DDP) which, as a church, we will be engaging with throughout the year. The first key event is the Vocations Event on Saturday 14 October. It will be in the morning 10am to 1pm in the small hall. For more information do talk to Revd Sheena or Heather Morton

HEALING PRAYERS On Sunday, 15 October, during the 10am Parish Eucharist, there will be an opportunity for people to receive extra prayers. Revd Sheena will make this opportunity available after everyone has finished receiving Holy Communion and just before the Prayer after Communion. Please make your way to the Lady Chapel Altar rail at this point if you wish.

There is a Healing Service at St Mark's Church on the first Wednesday of each month.

ADVANCE ADVANCE NOTICE
In celebration of her 75th Birthday, Carole Rack has volunteered to do a WING WALK next year to raise funds for “Wish Upon A Star”. A sponsorship form is available at the back of church, managed by Churchwarden Barbara and Treasurer Cath. Thanking you in anticipation.

REGULAR DONATIONS FOR THE WORK AND UPKEEP OF ST GILES
It’s that time of year again! Boxes of envelopes will be available on the 22 October at the back of church for use from the 5 November. As usual, we have blue envelopes for people on the Gift Aid scheme and yellow envelopes for those who are not.
If anyone is a tax-payer and is not yet on our Gift Aid scheme, can I urge you to sign up! It allows us to claim another 25% on top of your donation— really worthwhile additional income for St Giles. Please get in touch with Cath Gregory if you have any questions at all. Thank you.

HOME INSURANCE AND A PRESENT FOR ST GILES
We have used Ecclesiastical Insurance for some time to insure the church and halls. As it is Ecclesiastical’s 130th birthday this year, they are offering £130 to St Giles for each home insurance policy taken out by a member of the congregation, staff or volunteers. So if you are interested, please look at the poster in church or in the small hall for details of how to contact Ecclesiastical. This offer covers home insurance policies taken out with Ecclesiastical to start on or before 18 May 2018.
