Christingles….. help required
Please can you help make the Christingles on Saturday 22nd December at 10am in St Peters Hall. Chocolates, mince pies and squash are provided to help with all the hard work. Oh, and tea and coffee for the hardworking parents who must accompany you. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you. Cherry
Gifts for the Homeless
Once again we will be collecting items for the homeless. If you can, and would like to pop something in to the boxes in church we will deliver them before Christmas.
The following will be gratefully received. Hats, Gloves, Scarf’s, Socks, Chocolate or any other small items that you think will be appreciated by those who have so little. At this time of giving, let us give to someone we do not know and make a little difference to their lives. Many Thanks. Moira

We need your talent
Calling all musicians, can you play the organ, piano or some other instrument, or do you know someone who does and would like to help out at our Sunday services. Please speak to Moira on 01243 530198.
You are invited to write a prayer on one of the luggage labels on the prayer table and hang it on the prayer tree. Perhaps it could be a prayer of praise and thanksgiving or may be a prayer of intercession. Thank you.
Coffee after Church:
We have a few gaps on our rota for several Sundays this summer. If you feel you could help out, please let Sue know.
Please support Fishbourne CE Primary with the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme
Please put your token in the relevant slot when you shop at Tesco in Fishbourne. We are raising funds for play equipment & could raise £4,000 with your help!
