SERGEANT PEPPER NIGHT
in church on Sunday, 28th May at 6.30 p.m. We want this to be a really ‘fab’ celebration of the famous four and their huge influence on music, culture and our lives. We’ll have ‘live’ Beatles’ songs from Andy Jones, a talented local musician and songwriter, readings from Beatles’ lyrics by Rev’d Philip Caton and some of their greatest music in between. Refreshments will be served from 6.15 p.m. Come as you are but it would be great if you could dig out or hire hats, pants, beards, shirts, kaftans, jackets, (wigs!) or any memorabilia of the ‘summer of love in 1967’ A splendid time is guaranteed for all! Peace man!

Sunday Club Teachers
The Sunday Club are looking for 4 leaders to join the team. Karen and Hayley, two of our leaders are now on fulltime university courses so it has been agreed that they should step down for the time being until they have completed their training. We wish them every success in their endeavours. Please keep them in your prayers as they also have 8 children between them to care for, respect! Harriet is also away on her travels until next year and Rita has retired. If you have a passion for passing on your faith to the children please speak to me or Joan Miller.
Many thanks Janetta Lawrance
The Children’s Society

CHURCH CLEANING GROUPS
After discussion it has been agreed that Church Cleaning Group ‘B’ will now clean the church once a month on a Thursday afternoon, the next session will be on Thursday 25th May at 2.15p.m. Cleaning Group ‘A’ will continue on Thursday mornings at 10.15a.m. once a month, the next session will be Thursday 8th June. If anyone would like to join either of these Cleaning Groups you would be made very welcome. It equates to one hour per month which is 12 hours per year which is not much to ask to help keep our church looking clean and beautiful!!
Please speak to Margaret Pegg or Sue Palmer if you would like to join either group or if existing members want to change times! Many thanks.
TRINITY HISTORY/GUIDE BOOK
is making good progress and based on the drafts we have received from the printer is going to be a very attractive publication. With a bit of luck it could be available by early June. Watch this space!
On Wednesday 24th May at 12 noon the Vicar will be the Celebrant and Preacher at Liverpool Cathedral at a Communion Service to mark the life of Josephine Butler, the Anglican Social Reformer who died in 1906. After the service there is a buffet and an awards presentation to individuals who are carrying out community projects to continue her legacy. The Vicar can apparently invite a number of guests on this occasion so if you would like to go please give him your name a.s.a.p.
