Vicar's update 15th OctoberSteve Newbold  2017 web2

We are at that time of year when we are all asked to review our financial giving to St Stephen’s.  There should be a letter for everyone with a Pledge Card to complete by 4th November.  If you missed my talk from yesterday can I encourage you to listen to it here before you complete the card.  
 
Yesterday we sang a lovely new song at 10.30 - Who you say I am.  If you want to familiarise yourself with it you can listen again here
 
At the end of half term week we have a busy weekend.  On Saturday 27th there is a Quiet Morning (10-12.30) and a Big Clean/Odd Job afternoon (1pm-5pm).  On Sunday 28th as well as our usual services the People and Plant Gathering meet (12.30pm – 2.30pm) and then our Annual Memorial Service takes place at 3.30pm.
 
Our annual Light Party is on Wednesday 31st October from 5pm – 7pm.  It is open to all families with children aged 5-11.  Please book your places via the Church Website here
 
Finally, a reminder that to mark this year’s very special Remembrance Sunday (11th November), as well as our usual morning services, we will have a special Remembrance Service at 6.30pm with a focus on those whose names were listed on the WW1 War Memorial in the old church building.  There is also a 100 years on display of art (original photography/painting/poetry) - contributions invited from adults and children.   Further information from Caroline Jamieson or Jane Maffett.

Have a good week.
