If you wish to take communion please come up the main aisle to the nave altar and stand at a distance while silently receiving the bread then use the side aisle to the right to return to your seat. At the end of the service leave by the south chancel door where there will be a plate for your offering and place your order of service in the box.

200 CLUB – NEW SUBSCRIPTION YEAR
As the new subscription year approaches we are very concerned about asking representatives to do door to door collections. So many of us are now familiar with online banking; it would seem to be a good time to change our way of collecting your subscriptions. The new system should make it easier for you to pay your subscription and make it safer for those who have collected it in the past.
Hopefully by October when the first draw of the club’s new year takes place, you will be able to pay your subscription on-line or by popping cash through my letter box. You will receive further details by post and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
The 200 Club draw takes place each month. For an annual subscription of £12 you have one number which is entered into each monthly draw throughout the year. 1st prize £50, 2nd Prize £20, 2 equal 3rd Prizes of £15. In December the prize money is doubled!!!! All proceeds are divided between the Village Hall and the Church.
If you are new to the village, or not yet a member, and would like to support the 200 Club, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01449 711393
