BLUEBELL TIME AND PLANT SALE AT ST AUGUSTINE’S (NEW DATE) Due to bad weather on Saturday 8th, we are now having a plant sale in the Churchyard on Sat 15 May 10am-12pm, which will be a good chance to come and see the bluebells and the work being done by our volunteers. There will also be tea/coffee and cake on sale.  If you have some plants to donate or can make cakes, please contact Rachel at the office 20708722 or Andrew Davison 07704 049053. Funds will be split between Parish Funds and the Churchyard Project.


CHRISTIAN AID WEEK Unfortunately house to house collections cannot be made this year, but if you would like to give a donation, please place it in  the Feed the Hungry plate on 9 or 16 May or give an envelope marked Christian Aid to a Warden. We will then send a donation from the Parish. Alternatively, you can give online at www.christianaid.org.uk/give  


MIDWEEK SERVICES Subject to approval, we are going to re-start midweek communion services from Wed 26th May. However, due to the significant reduction in clergy availability locally, we will only be able to offer a service at Holy Nativity on the first Tuesday of each month, beginning Tuesday 1st June.

BAPTISMS we are taking bookings for baptisms once again. Numbers attending will need to conform to Welsh Government restrictions at the time, and will need to take into account the size of the church concerned - please contact Rev Mark Jones for a discussion before making plans


THY KINGDOM COME is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury invites people around the world to join. The wave of prayer runs for 11 days between the Christian festivals of Ascension and Pentecost May 13 - 23. We are asked to pray in whatever way we want and with whoever we want for others to come to know Jesus Christ. Further details are at on the website: www.thykingdomcome.global/  


HELP NEEDED – St Augustine’s Tots Group We are looking ahead to re-starting this group when restrictions allow. We need some volunteers who could help out once a week (Thursday morning) on a rota basis, for example getting equipment ready, making tea, helping with acitivities. Volunteers will need to undergo a DBS check (free), hence the need to start things rolling. If you can help, please contact Fr Mark 029 20709897.
