God of truth,
help us to keep your law of love
and to walk in ways of wisdom,
that we may find true life
in Jesus Christ your Son. Amen

Prayer for the Dronfield with Holmesfield team.
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

Feast of Flowers at St John’s.  Plans are underway to make the Feast of Flowers 2022 a truly memorable event. Flower arrangers met on Tuesday evening to order their flowers ready to assemble arrangements on 30th June. If you would like to be part of this event please contact Jean Hobson. Over the event weekend there are two concerts, ‘Young

Voices and Ladies Voices’ and ‘Faith at the Musicals’ don’t forget to get your tickets for these concerts as they are likely to be sell-outs.

Bell Tower Tours will be available on Saturday afternoon and there will be many Flower arrangements to view. 

Help with refreshments over the four days would also be greatly appreciated, please see volunteer chart at back of church.

Notice Sheet. From the first Sunday in September Alison Bowen will no longer be producing the St. John’s notices, so we need a volunteer from church to take it on. As part of the review of administration across the parish and the creation of the Parish Co-ordinator role, it was decided that certain tasks undertaken by the Parish Office for St. John’s should be gradually handed over to church volunteers. The nature of said tasks (as with the notice sheet) is that the other churches in the parish have volunteers who undertake them. A second internet and email-ready PC will be available in the Parish Office if volunteers do not have facilities at home. Rev. Ian Webb.

Parish Hall – Total Clear Out: We had a really good session on Saturday, but the huge skip was filled by about 11.00am! Another skip has been delivered and we will have another session on Saturday at 10.00am. We need as much help as possible to get the job finished, so please come along to help us.
