Sunday Bulletin, 7th August

The Bulletin for Sunday 7th August, and the reading sheet, is now available to download, read and print out at the link above, and HERE.

Fr Colin is away at his former parish on Sunday, for the dedication of a new board for previous incumbents, so Fr Tyrone will be presiding at both the 8am and 10am services.

The series of Summer Lunchtime concerts continues on Thursday next week, with pieces performed by The Monington Trio (viola, clarinet and piano). The concerts are free with a retiring collection. Refreshments/light lunches will be served from 12.15pm onwards.

Best wishes

Clarification re Health and Safety

Further to the last email, the requirement to be accompanied relates to members of the church engaging in church activities in their roles (eg choir, maintenance, flowers, cleaning etc etc)

It does NOT relate to members of the public nor to members of our church going in effectively as members of the public (eg for worship or going in to pray or to light a candle).

Sorry for any confusion.

Fr Colin

Health and Safety Announcement

Following a number of incidents over the last few months, and in line with guidance from our insurers, the Wardens and I have reached a strict policy for anyone engaging in any activity at St George’s.

Unless you have express permission from myself or one of the Wardens (which must be sought on each occasion), nobody is permitted to engage in any activity within the church alone. You must always be accompanied by at least one other person.

We are introducing this policy only to keep you as safe as we can.

It applies with immediate effect to everyone unless you are advised otherwise.

Fr Colin

Sunday Bulletin, 31st July

The Bulletin for Sunday 7th August, and the reading sheet, is now available to download, read and print out at the link above, and HERE.

This Sunday at 12 noon, we welcome the family and friends of Clara Jane Bell to church for her baptism. Kaylie and her family would like to extend an invitation to anyone from St George's who would like to attend.

Patricia Byrne would be very grateful for any volunteers to take over the Book Stall (outside by the church wall) on a Friday morning between 9-30am-12.30pm. Please get in touch with Patricia if you can help out.

Lastly a reminder that the series of Summer Lunchtime concerts continues on Thursday next week, with pieces performed by our Director of Music, David Cain (organ). The concerts are free with a retiring collection. Refreshments/light lunches will be served from 12.15pm onwards.

Best wishes,
Alex
Parish Administrator

Scams and Tricksters - We have been warned by the Diocese that Churches and their congregations are being targeted by fraudsters, so please be alert. The latest scam is an email, purportedly from the Vicar or some other trusted Church Official, asking the recipient to contribute to a secret and discreet gift collection for a church member by purchasing Amazon Vouchers, and sending the voucher codes in reply.

Any church fundraising activity will have appeared in the Sunday Bulletin, you can view both current and past copies on the church website HERE.

There are scam emails going around purportedly from NHS about COVID vaccinations and vaccination status. You will never be asked to pay for a vaccine or to establish your vaccination status. The NHS will never ask for Bank or Card details, PIN numbers or passwords, or for documents to prove your identity.

Never expose bank or credit card details in response to an email or on the telephone to anyone who has called you, and be suspicious if they suggest you call back - you can still get caught out. Under no circumstances ever give your PIN number to anyone else - even to your bank. Never open an email attachment from an unexpected, suspicious or unknown source.

If in any doubt forward emails, or describe and detail any other approaches (e.g., by telephone/text) to: webmaster@stgeorges.church  and we will advise if it is a scam. Do this before doing anything else!
