Prayer

“Prayer fastens the soul to God, making it one with His will through the deep inward working of the Holy Spirit.”      Julian of Norwich, 1342-1413

Prayer really makes a difference, to the world and to us individually!  As Christians, prayer is our source of strength and our means of direct communication with the one who made us and loves us as His children. It is how we deepen our relationship with Him and minister to each other.  Please contact Jackie on email: jackiebrookscheesman@yahoo.co.uk or see her on a Sunday morning if you’d like to join Gleneagles Prayer Chain.

Gleneagles’ Annual Parochial Church Meeting…

…and elections to the Parochial Church Council (PCC) are coming up on Thursday 19 April.  Briefly, the PCC is the governing body of a parish church and consists of the clergy and churchwardens, together with representatives of the laity.  If you would like to be nominated for the PCC or Deanery Synod then forms are available in church, along with notes about what being on the PCC involves.

Defibrillator Training

If you want to learn how to save a life and how to use the Defibrillator, which the GCAG fund raised for, there is a training session on Friday 23 March at 7:30 pm at the Vicarage Farm Community Centre. Places are limited and so please email Ali on rev.ali.j.middleton@gmail.com​ to book a place.

Finance Pack Reminder   

You will have received a finance pack recently and it would be great if you could return any that have been completed.  Thank you.

EBay Sales for the Church Building Fund

Just a quick reminder that EBay sales are up and running again after a break for Christmas and our recent holiday. As there are a few newcomers to Church who may not be aware, we accept donations, photograph and list them on EBay and organise postage or collection if they are large items. All you have to do is have a spring clear out and contact us if you would like to donate anything. Simples! If things do not sell and if donators do not want items back they are donated to the Emmaus centre at Carlton or to local charity shops. Things that sell well are toys and games, baby equipment, clothes, shoes, accessories, bikes, furniture collectables, ornaments etc. Items must be in clean saleable condition please. Donations of packaging also gratefully received. Clothing mail bags are in need at the moment. If you order clothing online please save the bags for us. Contact Jane and Gordon Bell if you have anything to donate (01933 442458). Thank you.

Vacancy for Gleneagles’ Electoral Roll Officer

The keeping of the Electoral Roll (the record of church membership) is not an onerous task so if you think you might be interested in taking this on and would like to know more please have a word (without obligation!) with Melvyn or Elizabeth.

The Giving Machine

If you are buying from Amazon please don’t forget to go through The Giving Machine, as a percentage of what you spend will be donated to Gleneagles Anglican Church.  If you haven’t already joined, have a look here.
