We welcome any newcomers to our church today. Do make yourself known to the priest or the churchwardens. And do take a look at our website, to be found at https://stgileschurch.wordpress.com
The Magazine and Good News for Norwich & Norfolk newspaper (Summer Editions) are available for collection from the back of church.
“Intersecting Journeys” our art exhibition will now be on Saturday 6 July from 10.00am and Sunday 7 July from 12 noon. Admission is free. This is an exhibition of art in a sacred space, with opportunities to hear the artists talk about their work – mezzotints, oils, watercolours, knitted figures and architectural photographs.
Our next Traidcraft Stall will be on Sunday 14 July. The Stall will now take place because it no longer clashes with the Art Exhibition. Please do support the Stall by purchasing greetings cards and food items which are fairly-traded. You might consider swapping from your regular (non-fairtrade) brand. It really does make a difference to the lives of some of the poorest communities in the world.
Our next evening Bible Study is on Tuesday 16th July at 7.30pm at 37 Havelock Road. We shall be continuing our study of 1 Corinthians at chapter 4. All are welcome. Please speak to Karen Kiddell for further information.
Daytime Bible Study Group A Group will be starting up for anyone who might be interested and for whom it might be easier to attend a daytime group. Because of holiday commitments, the first session won’t start until the 2nd September and Elsie has kindly offered her home as the first venue. Please contact Jen by email at Jennifermgerrard@aol.com or by phone on 07917756626 for further details.
Norfolk Day Elsie will be running a Coffee Morning at St Giles on Saturday 27 July from 10.00am to 1.00pm in aid of St Giles Church. Further information will be given in a future newsletter – please book the date!
Our June Charity is Save the Children Fund. Do take a look at the display on the charities notice board for details. Today is your last opportunity to make a donation, gift-aided if possible, in the box on the table.
Newsletter via email – would you like to receive this as soon as it is produced? It can be easily set up on the church website. Click on the FOLLOW box at the bottom of the page and give your details. You will now get the newsletter electronically each week. Any problems – please speak to John Baldry.
Please do keep bringing in food donations of tins (soup, beans, tuna, sandwich meats) and packets (rice, biscuits) for the box in the Tower vestry. Thank you for helping those in need who call at the Rectory.
Any donations of wine for consumption at church events would be most gratefully received by the Churchwardens. Thank you!
Church open Fr Darren is delighted the church is now open more and thanks those who open the church. If you are planning to do so please do notify us by using the Churchwardens’ diary, so that we don’t get any clashes with opening. Any volunteers who could open the Church on a regular basis should speak to Fr Darren first.
A volunteer is needed from the congregation to go to the shops in St Giles St and Upper St Giles to ask for raffle prizes for the Parish Fete and then collect them. If you might be able to help, please speak to Fr Darren.
A volunteer is also needed from the congregation to decorate the Parish Christmas Tree and to take down the decorations after Candlemas. If you might be able to do this do speak to Fr Darren.
Our little lending library – don’t forget that the library is there for us all to enjoy, so why not take some time to browse through the books? You will find them round the back of the hymn-book shelves. If you want to borrow a book, no need to sign up – just borrow away!
