PRAYER TRIPLETS: Changing Lives through Prayer

Prayer triplets are groups of three people who meet to pray for one another, for family and friends and for St. David’s.  Pick up a leaflet from the foyer or have a word with the vicar for further information.  St. David’s prayer topics will be on the back of the weekly news sheet.  

Prayer Triplets are now being coordinated by Stella Allwood. If anyone is interested in being part of a triplet, or would like more information, please contact her on 480002 and she will try to help you.

ALWAYS BE AWARE - following an unfortunate incident a while ago in the church car park, when a car was broken into, may we remind people never to leave any items on car seats where they can be seen.

This applies at all times, but especially during the darker evenings.

Occasions – Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc.


Remembering Church Family Events Thank you to Ann Lee for 22 years of sending cards on behalf of the church to members celebrating special birthdays and anniversaries.  This role has now been taken over by Mary Smith.  We already have some dates for those who are part of Pastoral Link and chose to give details to Link leaders, but there will now be forms in church, so that everyone on our Family Roll, who wishes to be included, can let us have their dates.  We also like to send a card and message to church members who are ill, in hospital, or have lost a very close relative.  We can only do this if we know about it, so it would be very helpful if you, or someone in your family, could let Mary know - tel: 834717) .


Alternatively you can fill in an online form HERE and send it by email.

‘FAREWELL BUT NOT GOODBYE’

It was with great sadness that we said our goodbyes to Andy and Kath at their final ‘farewell’ service on Sunday 13th October. The theme of the service was ‘living water’ and this theme was accented by many tears shed during the day. Andy preached, as he said, one of his longest ever sermons but it only seemed like seconds, as we were all aware that it would be his last as vicar of St. David’s.

Goodbye (for now) Andy and Kath. It has been our privilege and blessing to have had you as our spiritual leaders the last seven years.

We wish you every blessing for the future as your hearts continue to be filled with streams of ‘living water’.

Christmas cards are available for sale in the porch. Please remember to record what you have bought in the book and put the money in the wall safe.

Food Bank News and Christmas Dinner

Dear Friends,

My thanks again for your help last weekend.

Over the two days (Friday & Saturday) we collected 1360kg of donations for Coalville Foodbank and I gather Ashby had over 900kg on the Thursday.

I think we all found that in most cases there was evidence of tremendous generosity and willingness to support.

If you know anyone in need of a meal on Christmas Day we have a contact with someone providing one in Whitwick, and they are offering a special welcome to clients from Foodbank.

Wishing you Joy and Peace over the coming season, and all the best for 2020.

John Hudson.


St. David’s will not be providing the usual Christmas Day dinner this year but if you know of anyone who will be on their own and in need of a meal this Christmas Day, please contact collections@coalville.foodbank.org.uk for more details.
