DECEMBER CHARITY OF THE MONTH ‐ SAVE THE CHILDREN
The choir is having a TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS CAROL FEST after the All Age Worship service on the 3 December, and thanks to all who have nominated their favourite carol. Please join the choir to raise money for Save the Children.

The new olive wood CRIB FIGURES will be dedicated at the 10 am service today. These have been purchased with part of the very generous legacy from Jean Rusling.

CHURCHES TOGETHER There will be Community Carols on Saturday, 16 December in Scartho village outside the shops at 11 am.

ADVENT REFLECTION
It's not always easy to spend time in peace and reflection during Advent and Christmas. A Church of England resource for Advent might help to find such moments. To find out more online, visit churchofengland.org/ Christmas. Alternatively, if you can't access the internet, Revd Sheena has booklets.

DEVELOPING DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAMME
The Vocations Event was held on the 14 October and was felt by those attending to be useful and enlightening. The next meeting will be the Values Event on the Saturday 20th January. Watch this space for further information.

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

TURKEY AND TINSEL LUNCH
Over £470 was raised at the lunch last Saturday — an amazing sum!

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
If anyone is a tax-payer and is not yet on our Gift Aid scheme, can we 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.
