you in the picture of Chollerton Parish?
members have been photographing scenes from church and community
life to be made into a montage.
This will be
turned into two different jigsaws of 80 pieces each. Pieces
of jigsaw will be sent to as many parishioners as possible
who will then be invited to an event of their choice in
order to build up the "big picture".
The church is
planning to write to every home in the parish of Chollerton
( and those who have had some contact with Chollerton Church)
to ask whether they would consider "playing their part"
by filling in the response sheet which is accompanied by
Parish Church Council is seeking to increase the support
for the mission and ministry of the Church in the parish.
The church is very grateful for the continuing goodwill
and help for the parish from church and community members
without which it would become increasingly difficult to
develop the ministry of the Church.
sheet which accompanies the "play your part" literature
lists a range of possibilities for those who wish to offer
their time and talents. It would also be most helpful if
financial support was forthcoming - at present there is
a shortfall of £45 per week to break even. A larger income
would allow further projects to be started knowing that
all was financially secure for the next few years.
It is expected
that letters will be delivered round about the 10th June.
Everyone is invited to attend one or two of the following
events with their response sheet (and piece of jigsaw):
Sunday 26 June at 10.30am (worship)
Friday 8 July at 7.30pm (social event)
Sunday 3 July at 10.30am (worship)
Saturday 23 July at 7.30pm (social event)
of 2 Chishillways, Barrasford will process the responses.
For those who cannot attend an event, completed responses
placed in the enclosed envelope can be left at a convenient
address as detailed on the response sheet.
If there are
any queries, or if no information is received, please telephone
e-mail the vicarage
or telephone on 01434 681721. Alternatively ask a church
member for advice.
A rather different
event is being planned for the parish of Birtley in July,
and in September for the parish of Thockrington.
