Christian Aid Week 2017

 

Christian Aid Week 2017
On Friday evening, 19th May, ypig held an “Big Brekkie” to raise money for Christian Aid. There were bacon sandwiches, croissants and pancakes as well as porridge and toast. The young people were great at serving everyone and even washing up! Huge thanks to everyone who came and supported – and to Claire and Jacqui in the kitchen. £194.41 has been sent off to Christian Aid (not including Gift Aid). The money will go to help support refugees.
Thank You Everyone

Church open for prayer

The church will be open for prayer from Friday 26th May to Saturday 3rd June between 6 and 7 pm daily (apart from Sunday, where Evensong is being held at 6.30 pm)

This is in conjunction with an initiative from the Archbishops to hold daily prayer between Ascension Day and Pentecost. It is also an opportunity to pray for those affected by the acts of terrorism and for peace and reconciliation in our world.

Annual Meeting

The Annual Church meeting will be held on Sunday 30th April. If you are a parishioner or member of Breadsall church, you will be most welcome to the event which starts at 1145am.

Immediately before the meeting, there will be an opportunity to discuss the future direction for the parish as part of the morning service starting at 1015am.

Lent Groups

We will be starting Lent study groups next week (28 February) and 8 March. This year, we will be studying the Archbishop of Canterbury’s new book, Dethroning Mammon. This promises to be an interesting challenge. There will be one group in Oakwood on Tuesday evenings, hosted by John and Marion Ellis, and the other in Breadsall probably on Wednesday evenings, hosted by Dorreen Milner. These groups will be self contained so even if you have not been coming to the groups before, you will be welcome to join one of these groups just for Lent. Please contact Chris Prior for further information if needed.
