Children free. Leave the car at home and bring the family!

Strawberry Tea! Mothers’ Union will be holding their annual Strawberry Tea on Wednesday 3 July, 2-4 pm in the Garden Room in the Parish Centre (Just £4 and value for money). Money raised will go to the MU ‘Summer of Hope Appeal’ which supports projects round the world such as supporting families in need, prison work, advocacy, health education, parenting skills and supporting victims of domestic violence, ending modern slavery and helping refugees. We will also join Sylvia Baty in celebrating her 90th birthday, she would love you to be there!

Elaine and Janet would like to thank everyone who supported the PCC coffee morning last Saturday. We raised £160.45.  

JSP has now ended, but has it left you wanting to know more about what’s in your Bible? While you are waiting for September’s groups to start, why not explore the Bible using daily Bible reading notes? There are some free examples for you to try on the Book stall, or have a word with Mary Dale who will order some for you. There are also daily apps you can download if you are into technology! 

Ilkley Half Marathon – 14 July: Burley-Tereli Friendship Trust has a team running. Janet Squire’s son David and his wife, Laura, would welcome your sponsorship. Janet has a form, or go online at UK Virgin Money Giving and look for BTFT. Karen Selby & Jane Schofield are taking part and raising money for two charities: Young Minds, which provides support in the UK for young people with mental health problems and anxiety, and Western Nepal Disability Trust, to support a palliative care project in Nepal. Please sponsor them, either by using their websites, or in person. Thanks to everyone who has supported us already.  

Coffee Money Donations: The money given for coffee, tea & toast in church on Sundays is going to charities with which we have links. In June it is WNDT, and July will be Annette’s school in Zimbabwe. Please be generous in supporting these links and our friends who do so much for others. Thank you, Janet Squire 

Help please! We are having difficulty finding PCC members available to run the Coffee Morning on 27 July. Are there any non-PCC people who could help on that date? If so, please let Sally Weatherall know: 01943 512642.
