Can You Help ?

Can you help with the parish magazine?  Our editors are stepping down at the end of the year and would love someone to take over the running of the magazine. December will be the last issue unless we can get a volunteer to edit the magazine. Some training and hand holding will be provided to anyone who may wish to take up the running of the magazine. The person would need some spare time, a good communicator and some IT skills. If you are interested to find out more details please contact Revd Andy or any member of the PCC. Your help would be much appreciated.

Remembrance Sunday:

Remembrance 2018 – we are planning to have the church open for prayer during the week before Remembrance Sunday this year to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1. If you have any memorabilia, or have or could make poppies (perhaps knitted) for a display that would be great. Please see the Vicar if you want more details.

The Remembrance Day service will be held in church at 10.45 am followed by an act of commemoration at the Cenotaph

Gibside Community Farm.

Gibside Community Farm is selling organic veg in the Church hall every Friday during September between 11am -12 noon. Please come along and support this community event.

The Still Service

On the Second Sunday of each month at 6.00pm

Still is a time to give space for God, space for prayer. A time to pause and consider in the hustle and bustle of our lives. Still will be based around Night Prayer/Compline with stillness, quiet, space, candles, silence, short readings, recorded music and simple prayer.

Julian Prayer Group

The group meets on the last Wednesday of every month in St James Church at 2.00 pm.

It is a service lasting about 40 minutes, starting with a short meditation followed by a piece of music leading into 30 minutes of silent contemplative prayer.  A piece of music follows the silence, and ending with a short prayer.
