KEEP UP THE RECYCLING! Kath Roberts is busy sorting through your offerings of crisp packets, stamps, bread bags and hard plastics (pens, toothpaste tubes & brushes). Some people seem surprised that it is worth recycling Plastic milk tops separately, but they are worth more when sold this way. Just pop these things in the box at the back of the church. Thanks, Rev Judith

NESTON VILLAGE FAIR 2019
CHRISTIAN AID THANKS
Thanks to everyone who helped with our recent House to House collection during Christian Aid Week. The total for the whole area hasn't come through yet, but the three churches in our own Parish raised altogether £931.72
(St M&St H - £569.39 St Michaels - £106.83 St Thomas - £255.50). Well Done!
Although the total was less than in previous years it's a wonderful amount to have raised in just a week - we only had 9 collectors altogether, as a number of our regular helpers were away or ill. Again, thank you, especially from the mums-to-be in Sierra Leone who will have life-saving new clinics to be built with the money this year. The young woman, Jebbah, who featured on the envelopes did have a safe delivery - a baby boy. His life was saved as he was ill for a time after his birth, but Jebbah was able to use the new clinic that had just been built to access medical care. He is now a healthy, happy 4-month-old.
BISHOP PETER’S FAREWELL EUCHARIST
Bishop Peter will be retiring from the Diocese at the end of September after more than 22 years in the post. To give thanks for his ministry to us, there will be a Farewell Eucharist at Chester Cathedral on Sat 20 July at 11 am. Bishop Peter will preside and preach; the service will be followed by a simple reception in the Cloisters, Garth and Refectory. This service is the opportunity for the Diocese and church members to give our own thanks, The Dean is offering tickets to every parish in the Diocese on a first-come-first-served basis. Each parish is asked to coordinate its request (including clergy). If you wish to go please let me know by 10 am on Wed 19th June.
