We originally used a ‘free’ service when this web site was set up, and a consequence was that you may have seen advertisements (over which we had no control). The advantage of the free site facility was that it obviously saved money, but we have now upgraded so that adverts should not appear in future. This has been done, thanks to an anonymous supporter, without any cost at present to the church.
Supplies of the calendar for 2017 were delivered this morning (12th October) – they were only ordered on 10th! Once again we have both a desk and a wall calendar (other versions, and also potentially other things, are available too!). They are available at the church now. All proceeds from sales of the calendars go to the church. The desk calendars are priced at £5.00 each, and the wall calendars at £7.50 each.
[Thanks to Vistaprint for the amazingly quick service and very reasonable prices, and to DPD for the quick, timed, delivery.]
Harvest Festival will be celebrated at St Edmund’s at the 11 o’clock service on 9th October. Please bring items suitable for the Food Bank, i.e. tinned, dried and packet goods; the Food Bank always has a lot of stuff passed on at this season, but they rely on this, and donations throughout the year.
We had an excellent talk by Craig Denston ‘My Life as a Ghost’ on Tuesday 27th September. Craig has been a leader of the Dudley Ghost Tour for many years, and his talk also gave an great insight into his mask-making activities. After the talk there was a fish & chip supper in the church – both the talk and the supper were greatly enjoyed by all!
Harvest Festival will be celebrated on Sunday 9th October at the 11 o’clock service.
Please bring items suitable for the food bank, that is tinned and dried and packet goods. The food bank always has a large amount of stuff passed on at this season 0f harvest festivals, and rely on it to keep them going throughout the year.
I’m sure that donations to the food bank are also welcome at other times.
