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 Andy or Mary know(Andy: 834210 / Mary: 834717) .


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


Given, prayed, invited …. Keep on inviting

Keep on inviting - the invitation service in June was the beginning and now we want to continue to invite those for whom we have been praying.  You can invite them to any service, but some good opportunities will be Harvest (29th September), Remembrance and Christmas.   

Look out for news of these at a later date and also further details for:

Operation Christmas Child Shoe-box Appeal 2019 - We are once again collecting shoeboxes for this appeal and you can pick up a leaflet in church which gives all the details and suggested contents - please note that this year toothpaste and sweets are not allowed because of new import regulations.  There’s a suggested dona-tion of £5 per box, but don’t feel you have to include this much if you are unable to do so - any donation is welcome.  You can cover your own shoebox with Christmas paper, or buy a ready to use box from Tara Gamble, who is selling them for us.  If you don't want to fill your own box, but would like to contribute a few things, we are going to place a box in church to collect these and we can make up some shoeboxes from your gifts. Or if you would like to give a small financial donation instead please give it to Tara or to Mary Smith.

Filled shoeboxes can be brought to church for the All-age Shoebox Service on November 3rd at 10.00am.
