Week beginning 16 July 2017

Donations for flowers in church are always gratefully received - dedication forms can be picked up by the pigeon holes at the back of church. Please put your donation, along with this form, into an envelope marked ‘flowers' or ‘pew sheet' and post it into the donations box. (Please be aware that donations will take a week to go through the system so should be made at least a week in advance.) A donation from Judith Polley has been made for July for flowers to remember her dear parents Frank and Florence Gardner.

Changes to church services
As of September, there will be changes to the weekday offices. As a result, Morning Prayer will be on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 8.30am; Holy Communion will be on Wednesday at 12pm and Friday at 8.30am; Evening Prayer will be on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 4.30pm. There will be no Tuesday morning Holy Communion services.

Organ Recital
Charles Maxtone-Smith of New College, Oxford will perform a recital at St Laurence's on Saturday 22 July at 1pm. All are welcome.

Organ Recital teas
We are looking for volunteers to help with the teas after organ recitals. It is really important to offer this hospitality to tourists and pilgrims, and it raises around £100 each time. Anyone who is able to help please contact Carole Perrett 01584 879406
