18 October 2020

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)

Welcome to our services today.  Services at Sherburn continue to be streamed via Facebook and WhatsApp.

QR Codes: these are now in place, so if you have downloaded the app for the NHS Track and Trace please use it to record your attendance as this will greatly matters.

Micklefield: Thank you to everyone who gave money to support Water Aid (our Harvest Charity). A total of £178 was raised. Brilliant!

Annual Memorial Service:  this was scheduled to take place at Sherburn on Sunday 1 November at 6.30pm, but obviously is unable to go ahead as planned.  Next year's service, on 31 October, will therefore cover two years.  However, although there can be no special service this year, Sherburn church will remain open on Sunday 1 November from about 12.30pm until the normal evening service at 6.30pm.  Fr Chris and Phil will be in the church during this time should you wish to visit, whether to light a candle, offer a prayer, need to talk, or simply sit quietly remembering your loved ones.

evening Eucharists at 6.00pm alternating between Saxton and Barkston continue.

Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer:   from 20 October, will be said daily Tuesday to Saturday, usually in Sherburn church, at 9.30am (NB slightly later time) and 5.15pm respectively, led by Phil. The Thursday morning service will be streamed on Facebook; the Thursday evening service will be at SAXTON church.

All are very welcome to attend any or all of these services.

Aberford: Aberford Church Flower Group would like to thank Mr Noel Speight for the beautiful chrysanthemums he has grown for us to use in church for Harvest Time.  Once again, even in this difficult year, our church is glowing with the very special beauty of these flowers.

Flowers at Sherburn:  more helpers to do altar flowers are desperately needed please!  No experience or flower arranging 'skills' needed – flowers in a vase are just fine, so long as we have fresh flowers by the altar and aumbry each week.  ALSO even more desperately needed is someone willing to take on the organisation of the arranging rota, as Susan Cox sadly has had to give up doing this.  Please speak to Angie as soon as possible if you can help.

£oose change for Ho:  collecting jar at the back of Sherburn church for any loose change you have lying around to help support Bishop Matthias and the Diocese of Ho in Ghana.

Private prayer:  Micklefield church open Wednesday to Sunday each week, 10.00am to 4.00pm.

Selby Foodbank: donations in Sherburn Vicarage porch, or donate cash instead. Next run Friday, 6 November, 10.00am.  We sent 100kg on Friday, the biggest amount yet, so thank you to everyone, and especially of course to Philip and Dawn Younge for taking it all.

Day by Day Book (Sherburn):  no dates this week.  Forms in church or from Angie to request a special day to remember.
