Additional Notices

Christmas Fair This will be held on Saturday 22nd November 10-30am – 1-30pm. Information regarding stalls etc. is available around the church on the yellow handouts but needed urgently are: Prizes for Tombola (and/or raffle) and items for mystery parcels (new items value £1.00 or more) as all these need preparation in advance. Please bring these and items for any stalls along to church and leave in the outer vestry or the lounge (& label for Christmas Fair). Time is getting short so your help with this will be greatly appreciated. A note to all stall holders: Please would you decorate your stalls to make them look ‘Christmassy’ and wear bright Christmas colours. Thank you.

Christmas Buffet Lunch Sunday 30th November. Ticket price £7.00 (£3.50 for children) now available from Joyce Smith, Sheila Jones, Lin Mayor & Dorothy Simpkin.

Situation Vacant The Southport Circuit of the Methodist Church wish to appoint a Circuit Administrator for 16 hours per week commencing in January. Good secretarial skills required. Full details available on the notice board outside the lounge and also from the stewards in the vestry.

Appointment of Superintendent Following the recommendation of the Connexional Matching Committee and the subsequent visit to Southport on Saturday, 8th November, the Invitations Committee were unanimous in their decision to invite Reverend Marie-Anne Kent to serve as Superintendent Minister to the Southport Circuit, with pastoral care for St Philip and St Paul with Wesley & St Francis of Assisi, commencing September 2015. We are delighted to announce that Marie-Anne has accepted and we look forward to her joining us next year. The appointment is, of course, subject to ratification by conference.

Free Keyboard & Stand (Yamaha) with zipped travel bag, power cable, instructions & songbook available. Please contact Margaret Biggs tel. 225199, mobile 07768961318 or e-mail: maggiebiggs@live.co.uk

Visit to the Pantomime (Dick Whittington at the Little Theatre) Saturday 3rd January at 2-30pm. Children from Creche, J Team & Teen Scene will be taken free. Adults wishing to attend £9.00. There are 50 tickets available (priority being given to the children) so if you wish to go, please contact Kirsty Howard. Tel. 01704 260532 (mobile 07814706813) or e-mail: kirstytomlinsonhoward@hotmail.com.

Extended Holy Communion If you know of any friends who are not able to attend worship and would like to receive Holy Communion in their own homes, please pass their details on to Rev. Jan Fraser or Mrs Joanna Simpson.

Fair Trade We are a Fair Trade Church and use only fairly traded tea & coffee. If anyone has a preference as to which tea or coffee is used, please speak to Sheila Jones, Lin Mayor or Avril Merone.

Paperback books wanted to sell on the stall in the lounge and at Thought for the Day in aid of church funds. If you have any, they will be very welcome.

Keyholders If you no longer require your keys for the church, could you please return them to me. The keys for the church are expensive to replace so any surplus ones will cut down any unnecessary expense. Thank you. Bob Owen.

Southport Food Bank Please continue to support the Southport food bank by placing items as listed in the box in the church porch. Foods urgently needed: Tinned fruit; Steamed puddings; tinned meat; long life milk; fruit juices; sugar.

Refreshment List A new list for the coming three months is on the hatch door (kitchen/lounge). Please add your name to the list for the dates you are able to help. More help is needed and if those who are able could do two Sundays in the 3 month period, that would relieve those who have to regularly step in to cover dates not covered. Please try to help so that this time of fellowship after services can continue.
