General Notices

THE OXFORD CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
During this month and next I will be collecting toiletries & other items for families to use when they stay with their children in hospital. This is a diocesan Mothers' Union project. The items required are Shower gel, shampoo, soap (all sizes of these), toothbrushes & toothpaste; tea bags and sachets of coffee, hot chocolate & malted drinks; small packets of biscuits (those containing only 2 or 3). Thank you. Pam Cooper.

GATEHOUSE
Thank you to everyone for your magnificent efforts with contributing food for the Gatehouse over the past year. The next Gatehouse collection will be towards the end of September. (If you would like to contribute anything before then, the box will still be in the refectory throughout August and September) Keep an eye on the notice board for the next date. If anyone would like to volunteer to deliver the food contributions to the Gatehouse once a year, please speak to Sarah Karatzios or Margaret Day. Thank you again!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
For our new Stay and Play 0-5 year old group on Monday afternoons (1pm-2.30pm) at St John's. Building on the success of Little Acorns, Bouncing Babies, and the other services for children, comes this new afternoon group. The format is similar to Little Acorns, although we anticipate slightly smaller numbers. If you can offer a regular commitment, once a month, or more often, (helping with craft, running the kitchen, talking to carers and children, setting up, etc) you would be very welcome. Please contact Martin 07909 976637 martindavis26@tiscali.co.uk.
Thank you
to everyone involved in the Flower Festival which continues today. We hope you enjoy the arrangements and the music throughout the weekend. All money raised is for Christian Aid.

THANK YOU from Laura
Thank you to all of you helping to make Sunday's ordination service so special. It was wonderful to be on home territory and to have so many people there to support me. Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support. Particular thanks go to: Felicity, Martin and the servers for making the service run so smoothly; David and the choir for the fabulous music; Jan Jeffreys and the flower arrangers for the beautiful flowers; Philippa and her team for the delicious refreshments. And to all of you who helped in so many other ways, thank you. I am very blessed to be serving here. Laura
