New Bible Study Course (Via Zoom)
Paul’s Letter to the Romans has been described as his “masterpiece” and “a Christian manifesto of freedom in Jesus Christ”. It’s one of the most influential books in our Bible. Over the next ten weeks, we’ll be studying this letter at Zoom Bible studies on a Monday afternoon at 1pm and on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm (the same study twice). If you would like to join the group, let Ian know by email (email@example.com) and he’ll send you a link to Zoom.
At St Hilda’s Church we have 3 initiatives which are raising monies for our Building Fund. Whilst we now have redecorated the Nave (see St Hilda’s Church in photographs page), repairs to the Vestry roof are becoming urgent (buckets & towels down when it rains!!) so we need to continue to raise funds for this repair – sometimes it feels like repainting the Forth Bridge!!
1. Jennifer continues to make face masks. They have a cotton front & back with flannel in the middle and they are available for a donation of £4 each. There are 2 sizes, large & small. Should you want any of the face masks, you can either visit Ma Baker’s sandwich shop on the Bradford Road near the Fartown traffic lights (open 0900 to 1200 Monday to Friday) or contact Colin on 07787 518483 and he will arrange a “safe distance” home delivery within the Fixby, Cowcliffe and Bradley areas.
2. Rita is making preserves (jams & jellies ++)
3. Joyce will undertake sewing alterations
