As it will be PALM SUNDAY on the 25 March, a list for readers has been posted on the church notice board. If you would like to read, please add your name and take a copy of the script from the font.

PLEASE NOTE: As Easter Sunday falls on the 1 April the All Age Service in April will be on the second Sunday
of the month (rather than the first), i.e. Sunday, 8 April.

EASTER FLOWERS Because of last year’s theft of your donations, we are asking those wishing to contribute to the cost of Easter Flowers to give their donations directly to Dilys Newton who will issue a receipt .

LENT COURSE Come and join in with the 5-session course — Live Lent: Let Your Light Shine — each Tuesday either at the home of Pete and Kath Whitlam, 26 Louth Road, at 10 am, or at the Vicarage, 8 Thirlmere Avenue at 7.30 pm.

Very many thanks to all those who have donated to the fund. We already have £2,500 (including Gift Aid).

Thanks to all those who attended the DDP Growth Plan meeting on Saturday, 10 March. We will be revisiting this plan, so look out for future dates after Easter.

As the AFTERNOON TEA on the 3 March was cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions, a revised date of Saturday, 14 April at 2 pm in the SMALL CHURCH HALL has been arranged. Please contact Shirley Campbell if you have bought a ticket but cannot make the new date.

If you wish to donate to Carole Rack’s WING WALK on the 17 June, you can now do so on line — or by texting CAZR75 £5 to 70070 to donate £5.

COMPETITION At the Churches Together in Scartho meeting last week it was decided to hold a competition to design a logo. Entries need to be in by 29 April and the winner will be announced at the Pentecost Celebration
on 20 May. A leaflet with information to help in the design is available at the back of church or please speak
to Heather Morton.

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.
