Weekly Notices for 24th December 2016

A VERY  HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE FROM THE CLERGY, CHURCH WARDENS AND STAFF OF ST GILES’ PARISH CHURCH.

 

ACTIVE AND VISIBLE  We have welcomed over 5,000 visitors to St Giles’ during December, through services for the community and schools and Christmas concerts. We continue to pray that our mission to be a visible and active Christian witness at the heart of this town will grow and flourish throughout 2017.

HELPING THE HOMELESS   Many thanks for all the continuing contributions.  Could we please concentrate on Mars bars and protein bars?  They are readily obtainable in  Pound Shops and Paul Thorpe tells us that they are particularly short of them at the moment,  

CALLING ALL KNITTERS!   We have a large amount of wool at our disposal, and it is offered to anyone who could knit fingerless gloves and/or hats. These also are for the relief of the homeless on the streets of Wrexham. Please see the Wardens or Stella if you can help.

VIENNESE GALA CONCERT  The New Sinfonia Concert , conducted by Robert Guy, takes place on Monday 2nd January at 3pm.  Tickets are £15, concessions £10, Students £3  and can be obtained from the Wrexham Tourist Information Centre, or online at the New Sinfonia website.
