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.

Admission of children to Holy Communion: In the new year, we are planning to run another set of classes to prepare children for admission to Holy Communion at Easter. If your child is aged 7 or over and you think she/he might be interested in joining these classes, or if you would like to find out more about this, please speak to Revd. Caroline (01727 859274)
Take time this Advent to pause: Connections for Life is a daily opportunity to think prayerfully about your relationship with the world, with other people and with God - and to allow that reflection to shape your life and actions. You can receive a brief email: a bible verse, a short reflection, an image and a challenge for each day. Or you can instead choose to get texts sent to your phone. For twitter fiends, follow @live_challenge.
  • Stop and think
  • Pray and act.
Connections for Life begins Sunday 30th November 2014: please sign up at www.livethechallenge.co.uk
