Parish notices – 6 October 2013


KJ6E92442Pet service

The pet service this year will be on Sunday, 13 October at 10.00am. Bring a friend. We’ve printed out some flyers with Kids Church details on one side and pet service details on the other—if you know someone who would like to come along, take a flyer for them.
In addition to our usual collection of food for the food bank, on the day of the pet service we will collect pet food to be donated to the SPCA. Please bring some along if you come to the service. If you’re not coming to the service but would like to donate some food, you can leave it at the office or outside the church doors.


On Sunday, 27 October, the 10am service will be a baptism service. If you are thinking about baptism for yourself or others in your family, talk to Ben—he’d love to answer questions and help you in any way possible.

Prayers for those who have died

The office computer has lost the names of many people who have died who we would normally be praying for on their anniversary.

Opportunities for ministry

We’d love it if everyone in the parish got involved in some sort of ministry.
