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.

After School Church

Do you have time to help out at After School Church on Wednesday afternoons?  At the moment we are short of people to provide refreshments for parents and children, particularly on the last Wednesday of each month.  If you think you can help with this speak to Liz Eames.


70 people crammed into The Lady Jane on the 23rd December for BBC Radio Leicester Sing Christmas.


A nice mix of pub regulars, Hall Lane Methodist, St David’s and Licensee Mandy’s family enjoyed carol singing, readings from the Bible, mince pies and a few refreshments!

‘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’.

CHRISTINGLE 2019

On Christmas Eve we held our annual Christingle service. This year it was a little different from previous years in that the Christingle took human form in the shape of Ann Sankey who, with suitable ‘stuffing’, made a very commendable orange.

The church was again filled to capacity and the children loved seeing Ann taking the form of the finished Christingle.

They all joined in singing ‘Away in a Manger’ which, in just the light of the Christingles, was quite magical.

Come and rejoice at what God has been doing in North West Leicestershire and pray into what he is yet to do.
