Date: 7th August 2016
Eleventh Sunday after Trinity
Collect for the day:
O God, you declare your almighty power most chiefly in showing mercy
and pity: mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace, that we, running the way of your commandments, may receive your gracious promises, and be made partakers of your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Friends of Pagham Parish Church: BBQ and Skittles at The Spur, Slindon – Friday 19th August – £18.00. Come along and have an evening of fun and laughter, and enjoy a summer BBQ; details and tickets are available from Richard Druce – 07825309585, with sin-up sheet on the noticeboard.
Painting: Fresh from our triumph with decorating St Andrews Chapel, we are now planning on painting the Church Centre starting at 9.00am on Saturday 13th August. There is a sign-up sheet on the notice board in church. Please come equipped with brushes and rollers on the day.
Food Bank: Don’t forget to keep bringing in food for those in need, the summer holidays creates added pressure on budgets as children are not fed at school and need entertainment too.
Stewardship Sunday: In February you will remember that there was a Financial Presentation in church, where we asked all of you to prayerfully consider your level of financial support to the church. We said that we would report back to you once all had had time to take time to consider and if appropriate act. 6 months down the line we are able to report that there was a very positive response to the appeal. We do of course operate a variety of giving schemes – Parish giving Scheme, Free Will offering Envelopes, the collection plate etc. We are able to see that more than 30 people have taken positive steps to increase their giving, either in line with inflation via the Parish Giving Scheme, or by increasing the amount they give. Others have signed up either for the Parish Giving Scheme or the Free Will offering envelopes. There is a level of anonymity associated with all our giving, which makes giving thanks to individuals difficult. The PCC would therefore like to take this opportunity to thank all who responded to the appeal.
Parish Book Group: Our current book is ‘Grantchester – Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death’ by James Runcie. See the Book Group notice board for further information and sign-up sheets. Join a discussion group on Monday 12th September at 8pm, or Thursday 15th September at 10am.
Good News: Good News: Thank you to those who have responded and volunteered to take on deliveries. We are seeking deliverers for West Front Road (1 -25) and Edwen Close, if anyone is able to assist please contact Trudi 263597 or Mo 268576.
