Sponsored Flower Arrangements

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

scope of the flower arrangement with you.

Bike 'n Hike: The 2014 Beds & Herts Historic Churches Trust
Bike 'n Hike event will be held from 10am to 6pm on Saturday 13th
September. St Saviour's is one of the participating churches. If you
would like to take part then you can contact John M (01727 869900)
for a sponsorship form. If you don't feel that energetic but would
like to support the event anyway then please sponsor one of our participating
church members. We usually have a couple of members of the congregation
who will be seeking sponsorship and we will have their names in future
pew sheets. You can also sponsor the team welcoming our 'visitors'
with refreshments throughout the day and a sponsorship form for this
can be found at the back of church. From the sponsorship we receive,
50% will come back to St Saviours with the other 50% going to the
Trust to support its excellent work.
Food Bank: The Children's Church would like to thank the congregation
for their continued generosity towards the Food Bank initiative. Recently
due to the restricted opening hours for delivery of the Welwyn Food
Bank we have started taking your donations to the St Albans 'Feed'
Food Bank based at The Vineyard church on Brick Knoll Park. They run
a very similar model to The Trussell Trust offering not only food
but advice and help on a range of issues; and following a pilot period
of delivering donations to this project we would like to make this
a permanent change. The shopping lists are similar, however I have
put the list specific to Feed up at the back of the church together
with their latest news letter. If you have any questions or comments
please do not hesitate to get in touch. Many thanks on behalf of the
Children's Church, Ellie M
