COLLECT FOR TODAY

Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is governed and sanctified:  hear our prayer which we offer for all your faithful people, that in their vocation and ministry they may serve you in holiness and truth to the glory of your name; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 


We now have a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/HolyTrinityandStMargarets (Click on the Facebook logo) where events will be published and possibly the odd “emergency” statement such as that issued by the Archbishop of Canterbury in response to the Sri Lankan atrocity.  Please visit and ‘Like’ us.”


NOTICES… NEWS… EVENTS…

LIGHTHOUSE:  DON’T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR LIGHTHOUSE TEE-SHIRTS NEXT WEEK.

Lighthouse Hazlemere:  The list of craft items is in both churches.  The organisers would really appreciate any donations of packets of biscuits to sustain the helpers.  Containers are in both Churches for these.  It saves so much money each year.

Lighthouse:  Fresh Café is run for two evenings – Wednesday 31st July and Thursday 1st August, 1900-2100.  What Dave Holland is seeking is assistance with the following. During the evening sessions, with about 100 young people attending, he thinks it would be a great opportunity to showcase local talent, which is why he would like to extend this invitation to those in the churches – ideally other young people, though this is not an exclusive invitation. Whether you know someone who sings, dances, juggles or has any other respectable talent, they would love to host them as some light entertainment during the sessions. He would be looking for about 3 slots of 15 minutes on each night, allocated on a first come, first served basis. He encourages those that would be interested to get in touch with him personally  (holland.dave@hotmail.com)
