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

Notices — Third Sunday of Easter — 26th April 2020


Con­firm­a­tion – Booked in for Sunday 23rd August (but wait­ing to be advised). Bp Michael Stead will be here for con­firm­a­tion.  Any­one who is not con­firmed is invited to go through the pro­cess of pre­par­a­tion with Fr Jeff.  Please speak to Fr Jeff about this.

Zoom Morn­ing Tea – these have been great to catch up with a num­ber of parish­ion­ers.  If you are not famil­i­ar with the tech­no­logy, all you have to do to join a ses­sion is to click on the email link.  No pass­word required now.  Thanks to Jen­nifer Bestel for the idea and for hosting.

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 Tues­day even­ing at the latest.  This is so we can post out the weekly ser­vice book­let earlier.
