PCC will meet in church at 7.30 pm on Monday 16th September.

 

Churches Together in West Kirby Walk -Tuesday 17th September 12.00 noon starting from St Michael’s. More details below.

Children’s Society Boxes. Please may I have the boxes in for the annual opening. I apologise for being a bit later this year. I should be in church at the 9am service most weeks, so will be happy to accept the boxes when you bring them, or I can arrange to come & collect them if you let me know.  Kathy Runham.

Barn Dance Friday 4th October Tickets are now on sale from Ailsa or Angela, priced £8.00, which includes a hot harvest supper and pudding.  Bring your own drinks either soft or alcoholic! .Ailsa is still also in need of raffle prizes if you can donate anything please

There will be a meeting for all those who have offered their slow cookers for the Barn Dance where Angela warmly invites you to her home for a cuppa (and I am sure there will be cake).  So please join us on Thursday 19th September at 6.30pm at “Rockmount” Grange Old Road, West Kirby.  Anyone volunteering to support on the evening with service and clearing up are also welcome.  Thank you, Ailsa and Angela.

Church Flowers.  I know many, including myself, enjoy fresh flowers in church.  Like most things, they come at a cost.  A reminder that you may wish to have flowers in church for a special occasion or in memory of a loved one. A donation towards the cost of them is required and we can put a message on the notice sheet.  Our flower fund box is at the back of church and we always welcome whatever you are able to spare, especially at this time please, when we are looking ahead to decorate the church for Harvest.  Please see our fabulous flower team for any special requests – Jean Hughes, Lesley Wilkinson, Ann Jones – and thank you ladies for all you do to make St Michael’s look so beautiful.  Ailsa

 Celebration of Creativity (formerly known as the Art and Craft Exhibition) Plans are going ahead for an ‘Arts and Craft’ Exhibition to be held here at St Michael’s from 18th – 20th October 2019 culminating in a special service on Sunday 20th October. Plenty of help will be needed.

There is now a signup sheet in the Book corner for people to help set up, serve refreshments and welcome visitors.

 You shop –  Amazon donates to our church. If you shop online with Amazon, then you can now choose our church as you charity of choice, by shopping through smile.amazon.co.uk

This gives you the full Amazon service, but Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the purchase price directly to our church. There are leaflets at the back of church in the book corner and by the collection plates showing you with simple pictures, how to select our church as your chosen charity. Kate Smith.

Christmas Fair The date this year will be Saturday 16th November 1.30pm – 4pm Please contact me if you have any thoughts or new ideas, it will be a parish event so everyone is welcome to have input and it will be gladly received. New helpers always welcome. Thank you Heather Coppack 625 1107

Andy’s Bike ride – Thank you.
Many thanks to everyone who supported my recent Bike ride in Scotland. Team NotFastJustGlorious as at today (09/09) we have raised £2030 between us. Many thanks for all your support. Andy

Everyone is invited to join the “Churches Together” walk on Tuesday 17th September starting from St Michael’s at 12.00 noon.  Bring a packed lunch and we will eat together in church before walking to the Column, then to the Sisters of Jesus Way and St Bridget’s then onto the Methodist Church and up to Riverway before going on to St Agnes, St Andrews and finishing with refreshments at the URC.  Prayers will be said at each venue.  You don’t have to do the whole walk and can join in at any “stage”.  Details of rough timings are on the notice board.  We will need some help with refreshments in church on the day and if you can help, please let Ailsa know.  It would be wonderful to see as many from St Michael’s as possible supporting this important ecumenical pilgrimage as we celebrate unity and pray for our community.

From the Chester Diocese Cycle of Prayer:  Biodiversity Nature is declining globally at rates unprecedented in human history — and the rate of species extinctions is accelerating, with grave impacts on people around the world now likely, warns a landmark 2019 report from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

‘The overwhelming evidence presents an ominous picture,’ said IPBES Chair, Sir Robert Watson. ‘The health of ecosystems on which we and all other species depend is deteriorating more rapidly than ever. We are eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide.’

Compiled by 145 expert authors from 50 countries over the past three years, with inputs from another 310 contributing authors, the Report assesses changes over the past five decades, providing a comprehensive picture of the relationship between economic development pathways and their impacts on nature.

Pray for efforts to sustain diversity in earth’s life forms.
