Children’s Deanery Event – this Saturday - 19th October 2013, 2.00 – 4.30 pm at St Michael’s Church.  The title of this day is “Shake Rattle and Roll” – there’ll be singing, activities (including mosaic, making wind chimes, decorating biscuits…!)

Churchyard work party – 2nd November from 10.00 – 4.00 pm.  The day will include activities such as clearing invasive plants, clearing graves and litter picking, this is to enable us to survey the churchyard and decide on how best to manage the beautiful space we have.  We also want to start thinking how best to manage the memorial garden and improve the area as a place to sit and reflect.
This is our last clearance event of the year and we are hoping to finish off the day with a bonfire and - weather permitting - some jacket potatoes and a drink.  As before, no tools are required – please just come along. 

Mothers’ Union there is a Deanery MU event on October 26th at All Saints Highams Park in support of the Overseas Fund.  It starts with a Eucharist at 11.00 am, followed by lunch (£7.00) and Molly Hoyle giving a presentation on the work of the Literacy and Financial Education programme.  There is a sign-up sheet in church – please sign up if you are able to come.
