St Luke's Anglican Church in Enmore a lively, inclusive welcoming liturgical community

Notices — Sunday 21st June 2020

NOTICES:

Update – The par­ish is now imple­ment­ing the guidelines sup­plied by the Dio­cese in co-oper­a­tion with State Health author­it­ies.  A copy of our Cov­id-19 plan will be avail­able on Sunday. 

Col­lec­tion Giv­ing — Dur­ing the lock-down, col­lec­tion-plate giv­ing was replaced by giv­ing through inter­net bank­ing (see chart below), such that total giv­ing did not fall.  I would like to thank parish­ion­ers for so quickly adapt­ing their way of giv­ing, and to ask that you con­tin­ue to give through inter­net bank­ing.  It is more safe (in many respects) for par­ish admin­is­tra­tion not to have to handle large amounts of cash each week.  Nev­er­the­less we will con­tin­ue to have a col­lec­tion plate avail­able at the end of the ser­vice for those who prefer it or who want to give a little more.  Note that if you include “ABM” in your inter­net bank­ing mes­sage it will be set aside for the ABM. You can also give by cred­it card (see St Luke’s web­site) if you prefer.  Stu­art Veitch, Treas­urer

Wed­nes­day Heal­ing Ser­vice — has resumed and is observing Cov­id-19 restric­tions re seat­ing and receiv­ing com­mu­nion. A bib­lic­al dis­cus­sion takes place fol­low­ing morn­ing tea in the hall – all are invited.

Con­firm­a­tion – Booked in for Sunday 23rd August. Bp Michael Stead will be here for con­firm­a­tion. Please keep our four con­firmees Alex, Lucy, Nich­olas & Nam in your pray­ers.

Food for our little friends — Don’t for­get to keep your cooked food scraps, fruit peel­ings, tea leaves and cof­fee grounds for the par­ish worm farms. (No cit­rus, dairy or meat). You can still drop this off out­side the office — dur­ing office hours.  If you would like some worm cast­ings for your garden you can leave a buck­et or bag at the rect­ory with your details. Our little fer­til­izer factor­ies have been doing a won­der­ful job and the fruit of their labours is now avail­able.

Any notices for the ser­vice book­let will need to be sub­mit­ted to the Par­ish Office email by Wed­nes­day even­ing at the latest. This is so we can post out the weekly ser­vice book­let earli­er.
