PCC Coffee Morning: Becky and John are organising the coffee morning on Saturday 22 February. You are all invited to attend (obviously!) and if you fancy bringing some cakes, scones or other amazing items of your baking skills it will be much appreciated.

World Day of Prayer: This year’s WDP service written by the women of Zimbabwe will be held on Friday 6 March, 6.30pm at St Mary’s. All welcome. Refreshments served after the service. 

Electoral Roll: Before the APCM on 29 March, we need to update our Electoral Roll. If you have been attending St Mary’s for more than 6 months you can join it, but this year it is not a complete revision; if you are on it you needn’t do anything unless you have changed address. If you would like to be included, pick up an application form from the Church porch and return it to the Parish Office before l March. You must be on the roll to vote at the APCM or to stand for election to the PCC. A copy of the revised roll will be displayed in the Church porch from 15 March. Any queries, please contact the Electoral Roll Officer, Merel, via the Parish Office 864405.

Lent Lunches: Many thanks to everyone who has volunteered to make soup, provide bread or help with Lent Lunches this year. We are still looking for a few people to make soup for about 12 to 15 people for 20 March or 27 March when the URC church are running the lunch. Volunteers to provide bread or help on 6 or 20 March are also welcome. Janet Squire 862582 and Mary Dale 862662

Coffee, tea and toast money this month will be given to the Burley-Téréli Friendship Trust who are celebrating 20 years of the link.

Cards Night!  Do you have a favourite card game or trick that you could teach a small group of young people to play?  REV are looking for a few keen card players with some fun new games to join them on Friday 1 May, 6.30-7.45 at the Parish Centre.  We might even have some refreshments! “Gin Rummy” anyone?!  Thank you. Please reply to Lizzie – or 01943 863946 or 07553 820799.  

Keighley Women’s Refuge: The Mothers’ Union is again collecting items for the refuge. They need pasta sauces (but not pasta or baked beans), tea, coffee, long life milk, sugar, tins of tuna, and instant meals that only need hot water. Please bring to the Parish Office, bagged and labelled, or contact Pam Sowman on 07976 125690. We hope to deliver them this month.
