Church Bulletin 02.05.21

Fifth Sunday of Easter

 

Many thanks to Anne Berry for this week’s bulletin, also to Julie for last week’s. Thanks, too, to those who have been tending our flowers to provide us with a beautiful and worthy church. Ann C has done a sterling job on the annual accounts for all our parishes, and centres, and we cannot thank you all enough for your continued financial contributions that have been keeping us afloat during these times of restriction. If you need to see the accounts or an analysis of the effect of lockdown on the finances for the last 12 months please ask Fr Nick or Ann.
