Keeping up to date

posted 18 Dec 2014, 06:11 by The Office

Many of our main notices are now posted via our Facebook page! But fear not! There is a feed from the Facebook page to this website, so that you can read the latest updates without having to go onto Facebook at all. This makes it easier for us to administer and keep everyone up to date. There will still be occasional updates on the main website - such as to the seasonal services page and groups pages.
Feedback on how well this works for everyone would be much appreciated. Please email the office (vic-barnwood@supanet.com)

HARVEST SERVICES 2014

posted 25 Sep 2014, 15:55 by The Office   [ updated 25 Sep 2014, 15:58 ]

Harvest celebrations start with the school children coming to church on Friday morning 26th September for their harvest service (sorry we can't invite parents - we can only just fit in the children!). Then on Sunday 28th September we have our harvest services at 8am and 9:45, with Harvest lunch afterwards and a service of Evening Prayer at 6pm.

Toddlers and Tinies and Buttons Kindergarten have their harvest service on Thursday 2nd October.

Donations of money or items for Foodbank are very welcome at all of these services (and we collect for Foodbank every week throughout the year so you can always leave items in church or in the church office). Visit www.gloucester.foodbank.org for more information.

Wedding Evening 2015

posted 12 Sep 2014, 06:21 by The Office

All couples are invited to the wedding evening on 29th January 2015 at 7pm. This is a chance to meet the priests, bell ringers, florist, organist and others, and to hear useful information about making your wedding run as smoothly as it can. Couples should receive invitations to this evening but if you are thinking of booking a wedding at St Lawrence, it would be worth contacting the office to see if you can come along.

Charitable giving

posted 12 Sep 2014, 06:18 by The Office

Please nominate your charity suggestions now, as the Charitable Giving Committee will make a decision in November (or thereabouts) on which cause(s) to support from our church funds.
Nominations to the parish office, or to any member of the committee.
