APCM: The APCM meeting will be after the 10.15 am service on Sunday 15 May (approx. 11 am). We will service light refreshments beforehand….so please consider to support this important meeting.

ASCENSION DAY

On Thursday 26th at 9am in the Town Hall we will be holding a Eucharist, followed by a light breakfast. Please book with Joanne in the usual fashion. If you are unable to attend in the morning, there will be a Eucharist held at 8pm at Reed Parish Church to which we have all been invited by the Revd Ruth Pyke. 

CONFIRMATION SERVICE

Carol Lilywhite is being Confirmed on Thursday 19th May at 7.30 pm at Reed Parish Church – please pray for her as she prepares for this special day.

A big THANK YOU to all who donated cakes, manned stalls and purchased items from our stalls at the May Fayre.  We raised £192 for the church refurbishment fund, and £216 for the BRAVE Trust.

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 15th MAY 

Envelopes for Christian Aid donations will be at the back of Church from Sunday 15th May. Please return back to Church by Sunday 29th May. Thank you

SAVE THE DATE AMENDMENT: CHURCH QUIZ The date of the quiz has changed. It will now be on Saturday July 9th, NOT May 4th. Further details to follow.

SPONSORED CHAIRS

The amount raised is £ 41,671 to date plus Gift Aid to be added  and accounts for 169 chairs. The reason why the total is not a multiple of £ 250 is that some donors contributed less and some more than the £ 250, but of course all donations are welcome.

BUG CHURCH COMPETITION – LAST CHANCE TO ENTER!   

The closing date for our competition for primary school age children to design a Bug Church has been extended to Sunday 15th May, because BBC Radio Cambridgeshire plan to feature it on their “Wild Wednesdays” programme and we want to allow people who hear about it that way to enter it as well.
