Janice’s Letter of the Month

Dear Friends,

Many Thanks

Romans 12 verse 5 – So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.

Well the big day has been and gone but not without the help and support of our church family here at St Giles. Thank you all so much for all your support and love on the occasion of Lydia and Eddie’s wedding.

 

Back to school

Proverbs 22:6 “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”

For those of us with children, or grandchildren or have family with children September will forever be ‘Back to School’. Fresh pens and stationary and often a new back pack to carry all those things that are needed in a school day.

Last year we celebrated Education Sunday as the children went back to school this year we will celebrate it again on Sunday 10 September and bless any new backpacks the children bring with them. Mrs Rachel Colbourne headteacher at Bramhope Primary is going to be interviewed during the service. So please come along to this lively and happy service right at the start of the school year and you don’t have to be at school to join in!

Come ye thankful people come

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
– Matthew 25:35-36

With September comes the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. We will be celebrating harvest on the 8 October and this year our gifts of food will go to the Leeds South and East Foodbank helping people in crisis.

Harvest Celebrations

And as a community after celebrating and thanking God for the harvest, we will eat together on that day to enjoy good food, good company and all the good things that God has given to us. Please Contact us for tickets for the lunch.

God Bless, guide and support you in the faith
