At Communion Services
If you are a communicant member of a Christian Church, you are welcome to come up to receive the bread and wine.  Otherwise you are welcome to either remain in your seat or come up to receive a blessing.  Keeping your hands down by your side will signify to the Vicar that you wish to receive a blessing.   If you have difficulty coming up to the Communion Rail and would like the Vicar to come to you, then please inform a sidesman.

NOTICES

LADIES NIGHT OUT will be resuming on Wednesday 13th September at 7.30pm, Oadby Grange Farm Pub.  This is a group of ladies who meet to share a meal together and have fellowship.  New members always welcome, please contact Mo to enquire or put your name down.  Mo John mojohnal@gmail.com Tel. 0116 2593504. We look forward to seeing you in church Carole Henson and Mo.

BIBLE STUDY HOUSE GROUP will meet on Tuesday  19th September at The Springs, Carlton Lane, Burton Overy at 7.30pm - do come along if you are interested.

THE BISHOP ANNOUNCES that the Revd Steve Bailey, Team Vicar, St Paul’s Oadby has been appointed also as Priest-in-Charge (Team Rector Designate) in the Oadby Team Benefice.

ANNUAL RIDE AND STRIDE DAY - Next Saturday (September 9th) is the Annual Ride and Stride Day when money is raised to help churches with their building repairs and projects.  Dave Henson will be riding with a group of active cyclists - no wonder he looks so fit!  Please sponsor Dave.  Half of any money raised comes directly to our churches and half goes to the Historic Churches Trust who then give grants to help churches.  We have benefitted from these grants in the past and will probably need to again.  Alternatively you can sponsor those of us who will be manning the churches throughout the day to welcome visitors.  Every little helps!

HARVEST FUN DAY - 1st October, at 10:30 am!   We will be having our annual Harvest Festival Service at St Cuthbert’s Church with a twist!   We would like all three churches to come together to celebrate as we launch our new service starting the following week.  The idea is to bring a picnic for yourself and whoever you are with and we will provide drinks and puddings.  There will be a skittle alley, face painting, small games for children, a clue search throughout the church and churchyard and also a shoebox competition - the idea being to decorate a shoebox and fill it with non-perishable foods for the Welcome Project.  There will be a prize for the best family box and the best individual box.  There will be no charge and all are welcome to join us for the day.

CAKES OR PUDDINGS NEEDED! As you have read we are having a fun day on the 1st October and as part of that we would like to offer the people who come cakes or puddings and a drink. If you are able to help with a cake or a pudding we would be most grateful. We are looking for easy to serve puddings for about 6-8 people (or more).  If you feel you can help provide a sweet could you please put your name on the sign-up sheet at the back of the church. There is a sheet in St Andrew's and St Cuthbert's. We also need a few extra hands to help us serve teas, coffees and soft drinks that day in half an hour intervals so if you would like to help there is space for volunteers on the same sheet. Thank you in advance for your help.

COFFEE TIME -  After the 1st October we shall no longer be serving coffee after the 10.45 am service. However coffee will be available after the earlier service and we would hope that the two congregations would meet and enjoy fellowship together at that time. We do need volunteers to offer to serve coffee between 10-10 am and 10-40. Note our three most regular volunteers will be busy doing other things at this time so we need your help and support in this venture to welcome young families and see growth in our church. Please do sign up and make a commitment

LIFTS TO SERVICES: If you need a lift to any of our services, please contact Howard Bartlett (259 3747) at Glen or Richard Bloor (259 2440) at Burton Overy and they will arrange one for you.

Please pray for:
·         Mollie Alexander, Margaret Bannister, Sue Burnham, Christine Higgins, Katherine, Mike and family, Elizabeth Tacey, Martin Tacey, and all who are ill
·         Lottie Bateman who was baptised on 27th August at St Andrew’s
