Briefs

Readers, Intercessors and Chalice Assistants: Please pick up your copy of the new rota from the back of the church.


Sponsored Flower Arrangements: We are offering the opportunity for you to sponsor one of the flower arrangements in Church, either on the pedestal by the statue of Mary or in the Lady Chapel. A contribution between £30 and £50 is suggested. The flowers could commemorate the memory of a loved one or the anniversary of a happy event. Fr Andrew is happy to help with any aspect of this project including a mention of the dedication in the pew sheet. The sponsor, if they wish, could help select the choice of flowers and colours. Jackie E will be pleased to discuss the scope of the flower arrangement with you.
Readers are reminded that there will usually be a large print version of the reading available on the piano. Please check before the start of the service.
If you know of anyone who would appreciate a visit from a member of St Saviour's or the Vicar, please let a Churchwarden know.
Please make use of the Church Library and bookstall.

Events

Bible Study Home Group: The next meeting will be from 2.30-4pm on Thursday 23rd October at the home of Christine P. Please let Christine know if you will be attending or need directions (01727 766849). We are studying the epistle of James and all are welcome.


Christmas Tree Festival Grand Draw: Books of tickets are now available for people to sell to assist this important part of our fund-raising efforts for the Christmas Tree Festival. If you are able to help, please speak to James and Elizabeth who will be at the parish breakfast for the next few weeks excepting 26th October.
Commemoration of Departed Loved Ones: Our annual Commemoration of Departed Loved Ones service takes place on Sunday 2nd November at 6.00pm. The list is now at the back of church for names you wish to have remembered at that service.
Cancellation of Midweek Masses: The clergy are required by the Bishop to be at the Diocesan Clergy Conference between Monday 20th and Thursday 23rd October. Therefore, regrettably, the Low Masses on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd October are cancelled. Apologies.
Millennium Window Project: We now have three proposed designs offered by local professional stained glass artists. These are available for viewing today together with the artists' notes. They may be found on the table in front of the window to be renewed near the Book of Remembrance. Please do look at them and offer your feedback on the slips provided to be placed in the comments box. These will be reviewed by the Project Group. I am happy to answer any questions on the work so far. Fr Andrew
During the Sundays before Advent we shall sing the Gloria in excelsis to a setting by John L Bell, who has provided much music for the Iona Community. The text is the same as that usually sung, with a few repeated words and a recurrent refrain of the words "Glory to God in the highest". Do give it a go! If anyone would like a copy of the music, please ask the organist or any choir member.
Christmas Tree Festival: Open House at 7 Becketts Ave (Jeremy and Imogen) from 7.45pm each Thursday until further notice to attend to Christmas Tree Festival business, and to provide training and consultation on Google drive/calendar/groups to anyone wanting it. However, the 30th October will be an exception, and no meeting will be held.
Readers, Intercessors and Chalice Assistants, please let Michael know (01727 872750) as soon as possible when your will not be available for duty during October to December and the first Sunday in January. If anyone who is not presently on our duty list would like to take a turn with either the Lesson Reading or the Intercessions - or both - please let Michael know and he will be only to pleased to add you to the rota.
Anyone for Tennis? (Table tennis, that is.) If you are interested in playing table tennis regularly here at St Saviours, please speak to Jan.
