Confirmation:

Bishop Paul will be with us, probably for one final time before his retirement, on the Feast of Pentecost (Sunday 19th May) for the Confirmation Service at 10am. There will be no service at All Saints on that Sunday as we gather as a parish to welcome our Bishop. Preparation will be starting very shortly for Confirmation. If you wish to be confirmed in May please let Rev Kate know ASAP. Preparation sessions are commencing this coming Sunday. Please see Rev Kate for more information.

Collection for Bishop Paul:

Thank you to all who contributed to Bishop Paul’s retirement gift. We will be giving him £500 from our Benefice churches which is excellent! We have bought John Lewis gift vouchers which we know he will be very happy to receive. Paul is getting married next month before retiring, and moving to York,so the vouchers will go towards something for their new home.

APCM:

This was attended by 17 parishioners last Sunday. We were seeking to appoint new Churchwardens but unfortunately there were no nominations received. Astrid Wood retired as Church Warden and she was thanked for her work over the last 3 years. Mike Wood our Secretary has also retired and we are looking at secretarial arrangements for the foreseeable future. Fr Darren and I will be considering a different way of working in the future to ensure that we can keep our churches thriving and continue to play a central focus in our communities. We have however welcomed 2 new PCC members, Karen Kilburn and Helen Wilson, (one of our Messy church Mums)

Easyfundraising:

We have been using easyfundraising to make our online purchases for the past 18 months and so far, we have raised £350 for church funds without it costing us anything. This is with just 8 active supporters. We could raise even more if we had more active supporters.

This is now well underway! As part of the faculty, we have agreement from York to remove the choir pews and replace with some recommended wooden chairs. We are seeking sponsors for these chairs. They coast in the region of £227. So far 10 are being sponsored. If anyone else would like to offer sponsorship please let Rev Kate know asap. There is a sample chair in church.
