NEWS
Foodbank
Monetary donations are welcome, as well as non-perishable food items. If anyone is able to commit to regular giving of £5 per month, please see Jim or Sue and/or take a form from the collection point.

United Benefice Diary
Amma Sue has organised a United Benefice Diary for 2013 and 2014 so please could anyone organising parish events, outings, or special occasions notify the vicar before finalising dates to check that there aren't other events organised elsewhere in the Benefice on the same date.

Choir Practice
Please note there will be no choir practice on 17 and 24 April.

Church Repairs 
The erection of scaffolding outside and inside the Church will force us to make temporary changes to the way in which we hold services.  Please bear with us during this time – about three months?!  Amma Sue, Graham and Jim.

Organ
As the organ is not performing at its best it is being tuned and inspected over the next couple of weeks. This means that there will be no sung responses or Gloria at the 10.30 am Eucharist (there will be hymns); and no music at the 6.30 pm Evensong.  It is hoped that 'normal service' will be resumed as soon as possible.

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
Thursday 25 April Frank Littler & Sons are hosting a 4-course ‘Meat The Producers’ dinner at The Millstone @ £30/head. If interested please speak to Jean or Rita.

Wednesday 1 May Whalley Deanery Festival at Balderstone St. Leonard, 7.30 pm (Mothers’ Union)

Sunday 19 – Monday 20 May Two special editions of BBC ‘Songs of Praise’ will be recorded at Blackburn Cathedral.  Tickets are required to join the congregation and are free, but you will need to move quickly.  Further details from the Wardens.

Monday 11 – Thursday 14 November "Be Still My Soul" A Silent Retreat in Preparation for Advent: at The Monastery of Our Lady at Hyning, Carnforth led by Sister Judith OCMM.  Cost: £150 (full board).  For more details or to book a place please contact Sister Judith at the Vicarage 01254 812154.
