Brenda Parry

 

Brenda passed away peacefully last Friday morning at Dorothy House Hospice, with Robin at her side.

 

We are hugely grateful for all the hard work, talent and dedication Brenda has given to St Thomas’ over the years.

 

Brenda’s funeral will be Monday 23rd November at 3.45pm in St Thomas’. In accordance with Government guidelines, only the small number of people organised by the family are able to attend. Please could you remember Brenda’s family and friends in your prayers, especially on Monday 23rd.

 

 

Sisters of the Community of the Church

Christmas Appeal

 

This year the Sisters will be buying all special Christmas foodstuffs themselves, so they are asking us not to donate them, instead they would like:

 

Gifts for men (they have 4 times more men than ladies): gloves, warm scarves, hats, socks and especially toiletry sets

Gifts for ladies: gloves, warm scarves and hats, socks, and individual toiletries

Gifts for children: money donations for Argos vouchers, so that a £15 voucher per child can be given to all the families the Sisters know are in need, as they have done in previous years.

 

James will drop off donated items to the Sisters on Monday 7th December.

 

Our church is open for Private Prayer

 

We are open on Sundays 12.00 noon – 4.00pm

and Wednesdays 10.00am – 12.00 noon

 

If you come into the church and find others there, please maintain social distancing. Also please read the notices and comply with instructions about hand sanitising etc.
