Christmas Drinks Raffle

Christmas Drinks Raffle

Karen is organising a raffle in aid of church funds. We will start selling raffle tickets on 13th November, the draw will be on Advent 3, which is Sunday 13th December. We have had some extremely generous donations of bottles for this – thank you! The hamper looks amazing and as soon as it is complete a photograph will be posted.
Karen is handing out or posting envelopes containing 10 raffle tickets to members of the congregation and the wider community with the following message on the front:
St Paul’s Christmas Drinks Raffle.
Drawn Sunday 13th December after the Parish Eucharist (Live streamed or physical).
A superb drinks hamper containing:
• A variety of bottles of wine
• A bottle of Gin
• A bottle of Whiskey
• A bottle of Champagne
• A bottle of Fizzy wine
• A bottle of Cassis
Price is £1 per strip. There are 10 strips of raffle tickets enclosed in the envelope. Get more from Karen when you need to. Please sell at least all the 10 allocated to you. Write the name and contact telephone number of the person sold to on the back of one half of the strip, handing the other strip to who you’ve sold it to. Please return all monies and strips to Karen by Wednesday 9th December.
Please give this a REAL push – we are so close to meeting the Parish Share in full but can only do this if we all try our hardest. Thank you! “
Whilst appreciating the difficulties of lockdown, we all have friends, family and neighbours that we can sell to without breaking regulations, encourage people to buy and post the money through your letterbox or bank transfer straight into the church bank account.

Advent Calendar

St Paul’s Church- Christmas Advent Calender

St Paul’s Advent Calendar
Attached to this week’s Newsletter mailing is a special St Paul’s Advent Calendar which makes us aware of the resources we are consuming as well as saving a little bit every day. Thanks to Jan Beason for this great idea and for producing the calendar. I hope you will print it off and join with the Churchwardens and PCC by taking part and donating what you have saved to St Paul’s at the end of Advent.
There will be some copies left at the back of church for anyone without a printer.

Your Weekly Offering to God

An enormous ‘thank you’ to all those faithful members of our congregation who have
rigorously filled and handed in or bank transferred their weekly offering to God. May God Bless you, we don’t know how we would be coping without you.
Please, please try to keep up your offering
either by Bank Transfer or by popping your envelopes through Pauline’s (3 Holmcroft) or Jan’s (2 The Paddock) doors.
