1. Sunday is Refreshment or Mothering Sunday, a break in our Lenten round. We celebrate with Simnel Cake in memory of our Mother Church and our earthly mother, pink vestments instead of purple, and today a change in the Litany at 9.30 am. Thank you to those who provided the cake.
  2. There will be no mass this week on Wednesday. Owing to a wedding this Friday at 4 pm there will be no stations of the cross or mass that day either.
  3. Sets of envelopes for our Lenten appeal for the Diocese of Aipo Rongo in PNG are available at the back of the church. A set contains an envelope for each Sunday in Lent, and one for the Good Friday appeal for the church in Jerusalem.
  4. This year we will have a Tenebrae service – a service of poetry: readings from Jeremiah and chant music, on Wednesday 5 April at 7.30. Please support this by coming if you can!
  5. Helpers required for Easter preparations. If you can assist with cleaning brass, you are welcome to join the Fellowship Group in a brass cleaning session on Tuesday April 4 at 1pm. If this time is unsuitable, or you would prefer to help with other tasks, please see Emily to arrange a time and a job.
  6. The next meeting of the Fellowship Group will be on Tuesday 4 April, starting at 1 pm. On this occasion we will help with the brass cleaning so all is ready for Holy Week and Easter. There will be plenty of opportunity for conversation, and of course afternoon tea, so do join us if you can.
  7. The list is out for the services for Holy Week – write your name down if you can help at any of these services.
  8. Advance notice. ABM Film morning to be held on Wednesday May 3 at Capri Cinema. Film to be shown is a re-make of the old classic “Whisky Galore”. More details soon.
