VOLUNTEERS STILL REQUIRED: Could you help with preparing and serving the refreshments after the 10am Service? You won't be expected to do every week as there is a rota. If interested please speak to Jane or Jackie.


THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: The Pharisees and their scribes were complaining to Jesus' disciples, saying, 'Why do you eat and drink with tax-collectors and and sinners?' (Luke 5 27-end). This passage was from our morning prayer readings. It's a reminder of the infinite mercy of God. Jesus is always at the heart of a group of sinners, feasting, celebrating. Wherever we are, often lost and weighed down by the past, Christ is at the heart of our failure, opening the door onto the divine feast of forgiveness.


ST ANNE'S WEBSITE: - This is a reminder that our website offers resources for our growth in discipleship. On the website you can now find recent sermons collated in one place under the tag sermons. Also, we have a regular slot called Spiritual Reflections which aims to look at questions of faith in a fresh, imaginative way. Contact Ashley or Ben if you can't find the content.

ONLINE AND CARD TRANSACTIONS: Donations can also be made through our website (the DONATE button is in the top right-hand corner of every page).
