ST PETER’S CHURCH - TONIGHT
Today, Sunday 5 October, there is a service at 6.30pm at St Peter’s to mark the closing of the church. The Bishop of Gloucester will preside, and everyone is invited to attend.  It would be wonderful if as many as possible could show their concern and support for the people at St Peter’s by attending the service.  There will be no evening services in any of our churches on that day.

GLOUCESTER CATHEDRAL
Bishop Michael has invited all of us to an Open Day on Thursday 9 October, 2pm-8pm, in Gloucester Cathedral's Lady Chapel.
This is a great opportunity to meet diocesan staff, to hear more about the work of the diocese, and to let them know how they can serve us better.
There will be presentations throughout the day and two special Questions Time sessions at 3pm and 7pm. For further information contact Lucy Taylor (01452 835515) or ltaylor@glosdioc.org.uk

THE ABERTILLERY ORPHEUS MALE CHOIR
The choir have kindly agreed to another concert for St Mary's Church funds on Saturday 11 October at 7pm in All Saints' church.  Costs for the concert have been met by a generous sponsor, so every ticket sold will be profit.  Please come along!

TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
This is run by Fr David Gardiner at 11am every Tuesday at St Mary’s. All are welcome.

MISSION OPPORTUNITY
It's easy to think that "mission" is always about inviting people to things, but what about going out and meeting people where they are? Fr Daniel will be going to the Royal Oak on Tuesday 18 November at 7.15pm to join a group called "Cafe Society". This group meets every two months to talk about ideas. The next one is entitled "Shop till you drop: Consumerism and its effect on the planet". If you would like to come along, let him know or put your name on the sheet at the back of the church.

ST NICOLAS’ HALL
There is currently a vacancy in bookings from 9am to 6pm on Tuesdays. Please tell anyone who might be interested to contact the Team Office on 244373, weekdays 9am to 12 noon for further information. Long term bookings preferred. -  Alan Jackson  Hon Sec

NOTICES FOR THE WEEK BEGINNING 24 FEBRUARY 2008

ACROSS THE TEAM

THIS EVENING’S SERVICES
St Mary’s: Evening Prayer
All Saints’: Benediction

PASTORAL SCHEME FOR THE PROPOSED TEAM MINISTRY
The draft Scheme, which is the legal document which will establish the North Cheltenham Team Ministry, has been received from the Church Commissioners and is displayed on the notice board in each church. There is now a consultation period which runs until 18 March.  Please do look at the paperwork, and please do ask one of the clergy or one of the Churchwardens if there is anything you would like clarifying.

LOG ON FOR LENT
Computers are a part of everyday life for many people. Why not use the web to help you grow closer to God this Lent? Check out the links at www.prestbury.net and see if they might be part of growing deeper this Lent.  If you have any suggestions of websites you have found spiritually helpful please email .

FOOD FOR THE OPEN DOOR PROJECT
There is a box in each church for the collection of tinned and packeted food for Cheltenham Open Door. Why not bring a contribution each Sunday during Lent?

CHURCHWARDENS
You may recall the change to legislation a few years ago which limited the term of office of a churchwarden to six years. In line with this, a warden from both St Mary’s and All Saints’ will be standing down from re-election this year.
Is becoming a warden something you have ever thought about? If you would like to know more about the role, please speak to a current warden or to Fr Michael.

TEAM LUNCH
The Team Lunch on 30 March at The Royal Oak will be a roast beef and Yorkshire pudding meal plus a vegetarian option. The dessert choice will be made on the day. The cost for this will be £11.50 per person; there are only twenty places left. Please contact me (quickly!) if you would like to join us.  Marion

CHELTENHAM CAMERA CLUB EXHIBITION
We are pleased to be hosting the above event at All Saints’ between Feb 7 and Feb 23 inclusive. The exhibition will be open 10.00am until 4.00pm each day with the exception of Sundays.
It will mean rearranging of chairs in the north and south aisles as these will be used to display photos on. Father Michael has also agreed to delay putting up the Lenten array so that visitors can see the full splendour of our building. The club are aware of mid week services and will respect them. Please be patient with any changes to normal layout that are made as it is only temporary and will not affect services.
This is a good opportunity for us to offer the use of our building to a local organisation      Simon

AVOID AN ACCIDENT
There have been some recent occasions when helpers in the kitchens have overfilled the electric kettles. Boiling water has spurted on to the worktop - luckily no-one was near enough to be injured. Another time the water entered the electrical connections and the safety tripping mechanism. Fortunately, there was no electrical arc or explosion.
ALL HELPERS--PLEASE do not fill the kettles beyond the "MAX" mark or pointer which is clearly visible on all models. Thank you!    Alan Jackson

NOTICES FROM ALL SAINTS

SAFETY If you are using an extension cable, please ensure that it is fully unwound even if you only require a short part of it. The moment current runs through a cable, it will generate heat in the remaining coils. I recently found a cable in the north transept which was not unwound for use, resulting in the drum and cable melting. This could have caused a serious fire or injury. Simon

Very many thanks to all those who have decorated and prepared our churches for the Christmas services and also to all those who have contributed to our Christmas worship.
