17 October 2021

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 very warm welcome to our services today, especially to the Harvest services at Micklefield and Aberford.  An extra-special welcome to Joshua George Allanson being baptised during the morning service at Sherburn and to all his family and friends.

Thank you to everyone who donated produce etc for the Harvest Festival at Sherburn last week, and who helped in any way with the Harvest lunch.  A very good time was had by all and there was even a profit from donations of nearly £80 for church funds!
