What's coming up?


Advent Course: Tuesday evenings in December
The Revd Rob Marsh is leading an Advent course for the Flagstaff Family called   “Journeying through Advent with New Daylight” produced by BRF.  The group will meet on Tuesday evenings, via Zoom: 
Dec 8th, 2020 07:00 PM
Dec 15th, 2020 07:00 PM
Dec 22nd, 2020 07:00 PM
You can Rob at ministry@family-marsh.uk, or Jill at the parish office for the Zoom link.

Stamps
Anne Heaton has offered to act as a collection centre for used stamps which she will send to RNIB. Drop them off (before Jan 1st) at 19 Rydal Gardens, LE65 1FJ. Foreign stamps need to be separated from UK stamps, and a cm left round each one.

12 Days of Giving
During the period 7th – 22nd December Ecclesiastical Insurance donate £1,000 to 10 eligible charities each weekday totalling £120k to 120 charities over 12 days. 
To nominate St Helen’s, click here and the ‘nominate a charity now’ button.
Each draw will close at midnight the day before, with all nominations rolled over to the next available draw unless the charity is drawn. 
The more nominations a charity gets, the greater its chance of receiving a £1,000 donation, so start spreading the word to your friends and family.

Christmas Cards & Fairtrade gifts
Sadly we have not been able to hold our usual November fairtrade stall this year at church, but there are many potential gifts as well as Christmas cards now available at the Fair2All online shop or, when none-essential shops are open, at the shop itself on the corner of South Street and Bath Street (17 Bath St, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire LE65 2FH)
