November 2019:

Saturday 23rd NovemberAdvent Quiet Day at St. Alban's church, 10.00am - 3.45pm.  This will be a quiet, reflective day and will focus on three key characters from the Advent season. Isaiah ('Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength'), John the Baptist ('Prepare the way of the Lord; make his paths straight') and Mary the mother of Jesus ('Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word').

*  Sunday 24th November:  An evening for St. Alban's youth, 6.00pm - 8.30pm at the vicarage. 

Saturday 30th November:  Helen Jackman's famous Advent Coffee Morning, 10.00am - 12 noon at Helen's home.  This is always a very enjoyable morning, with mince pies, mulled wine, and good company.  Helen wants the money raised to go towards "The Netty Fund", because toilet facilities at St. Alban's are long overdue, but plans are again underway!  

(As this website is global, Helen's contact details have been left off, but please check the parish magizines for more info.)
