Our next Foodbank collection will be on Wednesday 21st April, from 2-4 pm outside St. Mary's (or just inside the porch if it is raining heavily). Michael & I look forward to seeing you there!
 
Items the Foodbank have the greatest need for at the current time are: marmalade, honey, custard, dried pasta & sauces, tinned vegetables, tinned meat, coffee, washing powder / liquid / tablets, shower gel & hair conditioner
 
Photographs of our last collection outside St. Paul's & then being delivered to the food bank are shown below. They say thank you to all of you for your faithful donating.

Our service on Sunday 25th April 201

During our times of lockdown, over the last year, we have greatly enjoyed growing closer as one church family, across two churches. 
 
In order to keep building on this, we have decided to have a joint service each month (usually on the fourth Sunday of the month) so we can be altogether. 
 
Until it is safe to do this in church, this will be on Zoom (being live-streamed on alternate months from St. Mary's & St. Paul's) - and the service will be at 10am. 
 
Our first of these services (since re-opening the churches) is on Sunday 25th April and a Zoom link & details for this will be sent out in due course. (Please mark it in your diaries! We don't want anyone to come to church by accident that day). 
 
Michelle Cahill, our new Operations Manager

I am delighted to say that Michelle Cahill has made a flying start to working in our parish as our new Operations Manager. 
 
She came to our PCC meeting yesterday evening, to meet the PCC - and has already begun liaising with some of you. 
 
She will be joining us at both churches on Sunday to meet everyone who is there - and we are looking for other opportunities to introduce her to as many of you as possible in these continued strange times. 
 
Michelle can be contacted on this email address: operations@norkwithburghheath.com and this telephone number: 07930 397308
  
Love and prayers, 
Alex
