There will be a Bring & Share lunch in All Saints’ at 12.30pm Sunday 12 July, to welcome Deacon Jennifer, who was ordained on 28 June in the cathedral, to her new role in the Team.

THANKS FROM FR DAVID
Thank you to everyone who helped make my ordination and first Eucharist such a wonderful experience. The atmosphere at the Cathedral, the presence of so many known faces, and the joy at St Nicolas’ on Sunday was marvellous. I’d also like to thank all those who have expressed their good wishes for me who couldn’t be there that weekend. Finally, I was most humbled to receive the generous donation you all contributed to: the money you gave me is going towards a green stole, which I am currently designing, and a few other bits and pieces of priestly equipment I don’t have yet. Thank you all so much, and God bless.
Fr David

THANK YOU to all who helped prepare our churches and churchyard for Easter – gardening, cleaning, decorating and preparing for services. Also to everyone involved in the Passion Play.

FROM BISHOP MICHAEL
We have received a card from Bishop Michael thanking us ‘for such an enjoyable and stimulating day in the North Cheltenham team’.  He wrote, ‘after a week in Tanzania the first day back could have been a bit of a let down, but this was anything but that – encouraging in all sorts of ways’.  He particularly appreciated the varied programme and the opportunity for lots of conversations.

THE ALPHA LAUNCH SUPPER takes place on 22 April. It would be great to have a few people to assist in setting up and perhaps some others to clear away at the end. If you are willing to help in this way please contact Joanna by email

CHURCHYARD GRASS
John Boxwell has tended his patch of churchyard grass for longer than I can remember. He now feels, with great regret, that he can do it no longer.

All Saints’:    Choral Evensong & Benediction     6.30pm
URC:             Soul Café     6pm

ON SUNDAY 29 MARCH, Bishop Michael will be making a pastoral visit to the North Cheltenham Team.  He will not be able to attend every service or visit every church, but this is his programme:
8am         Preside at St Mary’s
9.30am   Attend Celebrate!
11am      Preside and preach at All Saints’ (note change to time)
6.30pm   Attend evening service at Elmstone Hardwicke –
                 preceded by tea and a chat from 5.15pm in church.
During the day, Bishop Michael will also meet with the licensed ministers and churchwardens.  We also hope he will have time to visit the Passion Play rehearsal and one of the youth groups.

ALPHA SUPPER
This will take place on the evening of 22 April.   Please think prayerfully about anyone you know whom we might invite.   Alpha is particularly aimed at those who have little or no experience of Christian faith, so although regular Church members won't be turned away, the real point is to be thinking about "The benefit of [our] non-members" (quote: Archbishop William Temple)

REFRESHMENTS FOR GOLD CUP WEEK. 
Grateful thanks to everyone who helped with these.
I started helping in 1999 and in 2002 took over the organisation from Rosemary Morris. I feel the time has come to get someone else to do the organising, so please could some-one (or two?) take over? I will be glad to help for the first time or two. It is not a difficult task. I have found it rewarding and enjoyable.  Gillian Jackson

THE BREAD AND WINE AT ST NICOLAS’ this week is given by Janet Waters in memory of her parents, John and Eileen Savage.

ST MARY’S LENT MASS SETTING
The choir has been learning a new Mass setting, which we will be using at St Mary's during Lent (hymn book no. 541).  Based on plain chant, it is hoped that this will reflect the nature of the penitential season. For the next few Sundays there will be an opportunity to practise one of the three parts of this setting just before the 11am service. Today we will practise the first part: Kyrie Eleison (Lord, have mercy).  Next week we will learn the Sanctus and Benedictus (page 555)

CELEBRATE! ALTAR CLOTH
Three people have offered to work together on making an altar cloth for those occasions when we have Holy Communion at Celebrate!  Please speak to Fr Daniel before Ash Wednesday if you would like to help with this.

MARMALADE
If you are making marmalade, could you spare a jar to sell in aid of ‘Let the Children Live’? Please leave jars in the foyer at St Nicolas’ or hand them to Molly Campbell Donated jars will be a sale next Sunday, 15 February

GOLD CUP WEEK this year is 10 to 14 March. Once again I am asking for help please selling coffee and biscuits to people parking at S Nicolas. Please speak to Gill at S Nicolas on a Sunday morning. We open at about 10 am and can usually get away for 12.30 --  1.00 except Friday when we have to return the room to normal . This takes half to three quarters of an hour.
In previous years we have been given a box of individual packets of BISCUITS. Unfortunately our generous donor (but not unfortunately for him!!) has now retired. Is there anyone in the team who could help in this way please? We are not allowed to sell loose biscuits hence the need for the small packets.

FRIENDS OF ALL SAINTS’ TALK
On Thursday 29 January at 2.30pm, Steven Blake will give an illustrated talk entitled: “Through the artist’s eye: views of Cheltenham’s churches and chapels since the 1780s”. All welcome.

COFFEE AND OPEN CHURCH
The church is open every Saturday from 10.30am to 12noon.  This fulfils part of our commitment to English Heritage following their help with repairs to the roof, and is a good opportunity for a warm drink and a chat with visitors and members of the congregation who call in.

On Saturday 7 February the choir are holding a coffee morning (in aid of choir funds so that we can begin to think about re-robing the choir). Not just coffee but tea, cakes, home-made bread, etc, etc, and LIVE ENTERTAINMENT!!!

NOTICES FROM PRESTBURY

THANK YOU
On behalf of Basil and Clare, please accept my thanks for all the very generous donations of food for Molly's funeral tea. It was her wish that the tea was held in church and I am grateful for all the help given to enable this to happen.   Marion Beagley

MISSION - THE FINAL FRONTIER!!
Prestbury Mothers' Union meet this Tuesday (27th) at the United Reformed Church in Deep Street at 7.30pm.  Our speaker, Fran Tolond,  is the Assistant Social Responsibility Officer for the Diocese. Don't let her job title put you off - she is the most dynamic, challenging and humbling of speakers and you will leave the meeting enthused by her. If you miss her it will be your loss and who knows - we should learn more about "mission - the final frontier" - what an interesting title! I wonder what it will be about? Please join us, even if you are not a member, we shall be delighted to welcome you.   Marion

CELEBRATE! MASS
If you would like to help make an altar cloth for those occasions when we have Holy Communion at Celebrate!  please speak to Fr Daniel

MARMALADE
If you are making marmalade, could you spare a jar to sell in aid of ‘Let the Children Live’? Please leave jars in the foyer at St Nicolas’ or hand them to Molly Campbell
