please remember to keep the last five minutes before the services, and especially the time during the administration of Holy Communion,

for quiet prayer and reflection (a bell will be rung before the main service at Sherburn)



A special welcome today to Sophia Buttle, Tilly May Clarkson and Imogen Hope Isabel Walker being baptised at Sherburn, and to all their families and friends; and also to all attending the Harvest service at Aberford this morning.


A huge thank you to Bruce and Emily Scriven who have very kindly taken all our harvest offerings at Sherburn to St George's Crypt in Leeds, where everything is very much appreciated.  Thank you everyone for your generosity.


Thanks you too to all who supported the Women's Fellowship coffee morning last week at Sherburn which raised the wonderful sum of £231.75 for church funds.

Flower Co-ordinator for Sherburn:  Susan Cox assisted by Sheila Hawking now has overall responsibility for the flowers.  The original Flower Rota still holds good, but there are a few spaces if anyone would like to pay for the altar flowers on a particular date - please speak to Angie or Susan.  If you are willing to help arrange the flowers every few weeks, please speak to Susan.
