NOTICES

  • Our congratulations to David Smith, who has been recommended for
    ordination training. David and Naomi will leave us in September, as David
    begins his 3-year training course at Westcott House, Jesus Lane, Cambridge.
    Until his ordination, David is our Parish Ordinand – please do pray for him
    and his wife Naomi as they prepare to leave St Giles and settle in Cambridge.
    St Giles has a long history of creating parish ordinands. Who will be
    next??

  • This year’s Norfolk Churches Trust sponsored Bike Ride takes
    place on Sat 11 Sept between 9am and a new finish time of 5pm. Sponsor forms
    for cyclists and walkers are available from Fr. Darren. We will need help to
    staff the church, so will be looking for volunteers in due
    course!

  • The family of the late Jane Eggleston have purchased in memory
    of Jane one of the red chairs in the Pitt Lane prayer room. We thank them for
    their donation. “May Jane rest in peace and rise in glory”. A plaque will be
    put on the back of the seat.

  • We are on the look-out for volunteers to open the church. Could
    you spare an hour? afternoon? lunchtime? Do have a chat with Fr. Darren, who
    will talk you through keys and how to open up the building. The church is
    currently open Tuesday and Friday mornings, but we would love to have it open
    much more.

  • As we begin to commit to prayer our plans and thoughts about our
    church’s mission and engagement with the city, you will find on the
    back of the teaching flyer a prayer written by our Bishop. Please try to use
    it on a regular basis.

  • We are running a little low on wine, which we sometimes enjoy
    after Mass to celebrate a festival or special birthday. Please give any
    donations of wine to churchwarden Bob. Thank you!

  • Donations for our Sculpture Appeal, and for the collection for
    Gill’s vestments prior to her licensing as our Reader, should be passed
    on to our treasurer, Carol Cullum.

  • Please remember to bring
    tins of food
    to donate to the Salvation Army – these should be
    placed in the box in the Tower Vestry. Our thanks to David and Elsie Johnson
    for organising this collection.

  • On Sunday 15 August, we welcome back the
    St Giles
    singers
    for a Festival Mass for the Blessed Virgin Mary. A
    celebratory glass of wine will be available after the
    Mass.

PRAYER THEMES FOR THE WEEK AHEAD

Our local
nightclubs, those who work in them and those who go to
them
