Annual Parochial Church Meeting
Sunday 26th April at 11am in Church House
Our Annual Parochial Church Meeting, APCM, will take place after our 9.45am Sunday morning service on 26thApril in Church House.
At this meeting, our church accounts will be presented, along with those for the charitable trusts we hold and administer. All our organisations will have contributed to the annual report available a week beforehand in church.
The most important thing is that during this meeting we appoint our church wardens, for which there will be a vacancy, Parochial Church Council, (PCC) and sides people for the coming year.
This meeting is open to everyone, although only members of the electoral roll can nominate and vote for the PCC and sides people. It usually only lasts 30 minutes so please do come along and support your church.
Saturday 28th March 2-3.30pm I Church House
Do come along, and bring your friends, to our Easter fair. We will have the usual stalls – Easter raffle, gifts, cakes and tombola, along with refreshments. Entrance is FREE. We will be raising money for church funds.
If anyone has any new items suitable for the gift stall or tombola (any food items in date for April and beyond please), we will have a box in church or you can contact us for alternate arrangements via the office email or using phone contacts from front inside cover.
We hope to see you there!
Combined Bishop Loveday School and church fete
Friday 3rd July 5-8pm
Please put the date in your diaries as this is a major source of fundraising for both the school and church and we really do appreciate your support. Further details will be announced in the next magazine.
This year there will be opportunities for sponsorship and advertising at our fete. If you, or your business, might be interested in supporting the school and church in this way, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. As this is a new venture for us, we are willing to negotiate terms to suit us all!
Most of us, and I’m aware some people can’t eat them for various reasons, love a tube of Smarties!
And, unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the annual accounts for last year are still showing a deficit.
So, we have another idea for a fundraiser!
On Easter Sunday, we plan to offer tubes of Smarties to our congregation to enjoy at the end of each service. (I will endeavour to have a few empty tubes for anyone who wants to take part without the Smarties)
In return, we ask that you keep the tube and fill it with 20p s from your loose change and return them to church. You can either:
❖ Bring them back as soon as they are full for a replacement tube to eat and re-fill with 20p s
❖ Bring along to our Harvest service in September (27th) or at any other time
Either way, we really appreciate your support with this. We will keep the challenge going until Harvest. Let’s see how much we can raise!
If you are unable to come along at Easter, but would still like to take part, please contact Ann via email@example.com or Sarah, using the contact details at front of magazine
