and serve you in all that we do;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Dear Mighty God,
We pray at this time for those who make decisions about a new Rector, to find the right person.
We hope that this person will be understanding, kind, enthusiastic,
and inspiring for the local community, our team of five churches and our school. Amen

Wanted: Office volunteers The Parish Office is an important resource for all of our activities as a team of churches and we are looking for some volunteers to give a bit of time to support Alison Bowen in her role as Parish Co-ordinator. The main purpose of Alison’s job is to, "release the clergy for the work to which they have been called and appointed by taking day-to-day organisational work off them to free them for their

priorities of leadership, prayer, teaching and outreach.” Volunteers can play a significant role by undertaking simple admin tasks for Alison and staffing the office when she is at meetings or on leave. Please do get in touch with Alison or one of the clergy if you can help or would like to know more. Rev. Ian 


Christian Aid sponsored walk Saturday 10th September Christian Aid are hosting a ‘sponsored night hike challenge’ (what we used to call a sponsored walk) and there’s a poster at the back of church giving details as to how to take part, etc. If you know someone who would be interested, please do pass on the details or refer them to me.

St Philips Prayer Time Every Monday morning, 10.00am to 11.30am. Everyone is welcome as we pray for our parish, our town, our vision and anything else that is on our hearts. 

St Paul’s Friendship Hub. A space for solidarity and support. Sundays at 2.00pm. All welcome especially Ukrainian guests and their hosts.

Alpha is at Dronfield Baptist Church on Wednesday 7th September from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and runs for 12 weeks.
Alpha is a brilliant and relaxed way to check out the Christian faith with no pressure or expectations. It only works if Christians invite people they know who they think might be interested. We believe that God is already at work in people's lives - so Christians of Dronfield and District - be praying about this and see which (at least!) one person God is calling you to invite.

Online Raffle July Draw will be made at 11:45pm on Sunday 31 July. The first three prize draws have raised in excess of £600 in total for church funds and this is a GREAT START!

There is still potential to maintain and grow this over the coming months. This is a great way that family, friends and members of the local community can help us in a small way; it’s really easy to do and you have a better chance of winning one of the prizes than you do £25 on the National Lottery!

This is a simply an Online Raffle; exactly the same principle as a tombola stall at a church fete, but hosted online!
