THE RECTOR would like to thank those who have been so kind as to send him good wishes whilst he has been poorly.  He is very grateful.

NEW COLLECTION BOX A notice has been affixed to the North porch indicating that the Rector and Churchwardens, with the PCC, wish to install a new Collection Box at the West end of the North aisle, in accordance with drawing 10/8972-14C from G C Robertson & Associates Ltd.  The drawing can be viewed in the Parish Office.

Events 2019 - If you have any ideas for our calendar next year, please let Heather (Parish Office - 388820) or Veronica ( know. We still have some suggestions from last year's questionnaire, which will be developed. Offers to assist with any aspect of events or to run one of your own, would be welcomed whole-heartedly. 

Sunday 10 a.m. Coffee Rota - We still need a volunteer to help 'on the first Sunday' of the month. This just means to turn up before the service to set up, to serve and clear up. If you are able to help, please let anyone on the present team know - on any Sunday of the month, or tell Heather, or Veronica, as above.

 THE CHURCH SHOP has Christmas cards, Advent calendars and candles, nativities and all sorts of inexpensive gifts.  We also have a good selection of interesting books for Advent. Do please come and have a browse.  All the profits from the shop go to the Church so your support really helps.  We look forward to seeing you.

CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS FOR CHURCH We will be decorating the Church for Christmas on Saturday 22nd December at 9.30 a.m.  Any contributions of greenery, variegated greenery and berries, etc. would be most welcome.  Please leave in the Church before 9.30 a.m. on the 22nd – thank you.  Judy Dowse and Penelope Bartlett.

VOLUNTEER DRIVERS are needed for the New Horizons Club, based in our church hall on Mondays and Thursdays.  Members local to Woodbridge are collected around 9.30 a.m. and taken home at 2.30 p.m. 

It is a club for older people so our drivers need to be prepared to assist, and sometimes put walking aids into their car boot.  We are looking for drivers who would commit to one of the days, or be willing to act as “relief” drivers when others are unavailable. 

Please contact Brenda on 07514 364752 for further details.

THE CHURCH CHRISTMAS TREE has once again been anonymously donated by a member of the congregation and we are very grateful, and also to those who decorated the tree.

We are also very grateful for the gift of the two trees on the Church Centre, presented by a member of the congregation.
