Collection Plate The PCC met last week and decided it was the right time to start passing the collection plate through the congregation again. It will be done in the following way. The side person will bring the plate to the front of church and it will then be passed by the congregation along the chairs to the next row until it reaches the back of church.
Also there will be cards placed on the chairs to represent offerings given by standing order, which you can place on the plate as it passes you if you wish.
Welcome Centre Doors
The welcome centre doors will now be open and welcomer’s will again stand in the welcome center
to welcome everyone into church.
If possible please use the welcome centre doors to enter and exit church.

Please see the following appeal from Richard and Gill Mcintosh.
I’m sure many will remember Francis and Elaine Wainaina and some will be aware of the loss of their tandem/gear in Rome. As you will see, we are hoping to raise some money towards a new bike/kit.
We have publicised this amongst St Mike’s members in York but of course Francis and Elaine were much loved at St Andrew’s too.
