Eco-tips:  A dripping tap can be not only annoying but if it is a hot tap it can cost you in both water costs and water heating costs.

Remember, water also has a carbon footprint associated with it from processing.

Recycle Walker’s crisp packets

Walkers are aiming to make all their packaging 100% recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025. In the meantime, they’ve partnered with recyclers TerraCycle to make it easier to recycle crisp packets and reduce the impact on the environment. Any crisp packets can be collected. Walker’s will donate to the Cat’s Protection League. A box is available at the back of church. Please put your crisp packets there.

“We do not know…

      how can we know the way?”

Courageous master of the awkward question,

You spoke the words the

     others dared not say

And cut through their evasion

     and abstraction.

Oh doubting Thomas, father of my faith,

You put your finger on the nub of things

We cannot love some disembodied wraith,

But flesh and blood must be our king of kings.

Your teaching is to touch, embrace, anoint,

Feel after Him and find Him in the flesh.

Because He loved your awkward counter-point

The Word has heard and granted

     you your wish.

Oh place my hands with yours, help me divine

The wounded God whose wounds

     are healing mine.  (Malcolm Guite)

If you know anyone who is ill or would like a 

visit, please let the Vicar know.
