SUNDAY NOVEMBER 25th 2018 – FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
The Lord is King; since the world began, his throne has been established. Let us worship our God and King.
THE COLLECT FOR CHRIST THE KING
whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven
that he might rule over all things as Lord and King:
keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace,
and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

ST PETROC’S CHURCH CRIB EXHIBITION 2018 – December 6 – 9th
Sue & Linda are organising the annual Crib Exhibition in the first week of December. If you have a crib or nativity scene you would like displayed, please contact Sue (01841 532902) or Linda (01841 541160).
Set up will be on Wednesday 5th December, from 10am so you can bring your cribs along to be displayed.
* You will be able to collect your cribs on Monday 10th December from 10am*
We are setting up a rota to help steward the church and if you can spare an hour or two to help out it would be very much appreciated. It involves greeting people, making tea or coffee and generally, keep an eye on the exhibits. There will be a rota at the back of St Petroc’s Church.
This is great Outreach as we can involve the youngsters of our community in making cribs and give them the opportunity to learn about the different cribs and the true meaning of Christmas.
Thank you. Sue Norfolk & Linda Morey
