November 2021 News

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY                                           

November brings a time of Remembrance. You are welcome to join the service of Remembrance on the 14th November 2021 at Wilberfoss Church. We will walk to the War Memorial for the first part of the service, leaving church at about 10.40 for 11.00, then continuing at church for the remainder of our remembrance. A service will be held in church for those who cannot go to the war memorial.

HOLY COMMUNION

Midweek Communion on the third Wednesday every month at 11.30am. Everyone welcome.

FOOD BANK AND COMMUNITY FARM NETWORK

Following the Harvest Festival service, we were able to send £100 to The Community Farm Network. Steve Percival delivered seven bags for life filled with provisions along with £60 all generously donated by the people of Wilberfoss to the York Food Bank

2021 has been a challenging year for so many people and ongoing supply chain issues may cause problems for those struggling to make ends meet, especially in the run up to Christmas. Our church is very proud to support York Foodbank in their efforts. This year we hope to help the Foodbank distribute supplies in good time, by passing on donations by early December. 

The foodbank web site at

https://york.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/

shows a regularly updated list of items needed and you can be involved by giving donations of non-perishable goods at the drop of point in the porch of Church, which is open each Wednesday and Sunday.  If required, donations can be collected from your home by contacting Steve Percival by email: stevepercival@hotmail.co.uk.

CHRISTMAS FAYRE

Our Christmas Fayre this year will be held on the 20th November from 10.00 – 3.00. Lots of gifts, tombola and the famous quilt raffle.  Bacon butties, cakes, tea and coffee served in the Priory Room. Look forward to seeing you there.

JIGSAW

We meet at 1.00 each Thursday in the Priory Room at church. You can drop in for a cuppa and a biscuit and borrow a jigsaw to help while away the dark nights. Everyone welcome.
