Notices for the coming weekScreen Shot 2014-02-19 at 16.09.26

Saturday 14th September – No Morning Prayer

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

Churches Together in West Kirby Walk -Tuesday 17th September 12.00 noon starting from St Michael’s.  Details below.  Ailsa still needs help with refreshments in church on the day.  If you can help, please let her know.  Don’t forget your packed lunch!

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.

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!  Apple Crumble will be provided by church, so bakers get a day off – but if you have an apple tree, apples, or even better, stewed apple would be most welcome. 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

Arts and Craft Exhibition Plans are going ahead for an ‘Arts and Craft’ Exhibition to be held here at St Michael’s from 18th– 20thOctober 2019 culminating in a special service on Sunday 20thOctober. 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.

rom the Chester Diocese Cycle of Prayer: Church of England Schools Twelfth after Trinity

Church schools pride themselves in providing an education for the whole child in a Christian environment. They seek to ensure that all children and young people achieve the best of which they are capable in a caring atmosphere that recognises the special gifts of each individual. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all is fostered within a Christian environment. Moral teaching is based firmly within the teaching of the Bible. They enable children and their families to explore the truths of Christian faith, to develop spiritually and morally, and to have a basis for choice about Christian commitment. They are places where the beliefs and practices of other faiths will be respected. The types of church school within the state education sector are voluntary controlled, voluntary aided, foundation schools (all maintained by the Local Authority (LA)) and academies. Quoted from www.chester.anglican.org/schools/about-church-schools/ where you can find more information.

Pray for the special contribution of church schools to education in our country.

Pray for Archbishop Ezekiel Kumir Kondo, Province of Sudan & Bishop of Khartoum
