Welcome to Les Rowe and his family, to Archdeacon Elwin and to all our invited friends today.  We are celebrating Les’ 53rd Anniversary of service to St Bart’s.  Please join us for light refreshments after the service.

At St Bart’s we are working hard to raise funds to restore the hall kitchen to its former glory.  We have £600 raised from the barn dance, £100 from the sale of books and we now need to raise a further £1000 to buy a cooker etc. which will immediately benefit the café.  Sue in the café and Linda are doing a sponsored “lose a stone before Christmas” if you wish to sponsor them.  Any donations to the fund are more than welcome !

Baptism at St Mary’s  Please pray for Ewan Peckover and his family as we welcome them to St Mary’s for his baptism today.

At St Mary’s you’ll notice that the broken downpipe has now been fixed.
