Notices for Sunday 9th July

Flowers in church

Flowers always brighten the church and can be a way of celebrating anniversaries and events, or a way of remembering family and friends. If you would like to make a donation for a flower arrangement in church to commemorate a particular event, please let me know. The names of those being remembered, or the event being commemorated, can be placed in the pew notes. I can be contacted by email – stgilesflowers@gmail.com – or give details to one of the Churchwardens. Please give at least two weeks notice so that I can make the necessary arrangements.
