NOTICES . . .

1.  Christmas Carols
    We would love to welcome some new faces into the choir for the Carol Service on Sunday December 16th at 6.30pm.  We will rehearse on Wednesdays 7pm to 8.30pm on November 21st/28th, December 5th/12th, on the day at 5pm.  Enjoyment of singing is all you need!  Do come and talk to me or any choir member.  It’s a really lovely service to take part in - come and join us Hazel Wainwright

2.  Annual Statistics for Mission

Each year the Church of England requires every parish to provide a count of those attending all Sunday and Weekday services for the first four Sundays of October.  They require that anyone attending more than once in the week is only counted once that week.  To assist us in providing accurate figures we usually keep a 'register' of those attending our services.  No names are sent to the Statistics Unit - only numbers attending.  We have checked with the GDPR authorities about this: to keep a register for this intended purpose is a 'legitimate activity' under GDPR rules.  The register is not used for any other purpose.  

3.  The follow up to ‘Jesus the Evidence’ will be held on Thursday 1st November at 7:30pm at The Cottage Inn, Haxby.  Please come and discuss more together.  It is not essential that you came to the first meeting but would help if you have read the book!  Please ask for a copy if you need one.  A hot supper will be served.  Please RSVP by Thursday 25th October to mike.symons@ymail.com to help with numbers for catering.  Thank you.

4.  A reminder that the Children’s Society Coffee Morning and Box Opening will be held on Saturday 10th November in the church hall.  For any information speak to Maureen Howard tel: 768013

5.  Thank you very much for all the generous contributions and donations for our Hull Link at Harvest; they were much appreciated.
