Gleanings from the Parish News
ALL SOULS DAY - THURSDAY 2ND NOVEMBER
This service, where we remember those we have loved and lost from this life, but who have gone to be with God in a greater life, is being held in Holy Trinity church, Plaistow on Thursday 2nd November beginning at 6.30 pm.
If you would like to hear the name(s) of your loved ones read at this service please add it to the sheet at the back of the church. There is a sheet in both buildings—you only need to add it to one.
FAMILY SUPPORT WORK - CHRISTMAS APPEAL
Family Support Work (FSW) plans to deliver CHRISTMAS HAMPERS to families in need in December, and if you'd like to donate food items to make these up, please leave them in the boxes in our churches in Plaistow and Kirdford throughout November.
Another way we would like to help these families enjoy a happier Chrismas is to provide some CHRISMAS GIFTS for the children (and also for the mums or dads). So during November there will be gift labels available at the back of our churches, hanging on a Christmas Tree, which will give gift suggestions for different age groups. If you would like to donate a Christmas present please collect a label and return your unwrapped gift to one of our churches. The presents will be collected each Sunday and stored for distribution to families.
The last collection for presents and food will be Sunday 3rd December from Plaistow church. That will give the time necessary for the hampers to be made up and distributed before Christmas.
Many thanks in advance from Family Support Work. Your generosity is so very helpful and will give many families a brighter Christmas and encourage them in bringing up their families over the coming year.
