Cuppa and chat with the Bishop The Bishop of Derby, Rt. Rev. Libby Lane, is coming to visit our area soon to get a feel for how we’re coping with things at this stage in the pandemic and to discuss the vision and future direction of the diocese. Bishop Libby would like to speak with a small group of people (no more than 12) from our churches north of Chesterfield, on Monday, 1st November at 10.30am for an hour or so at St. Swithin’s, Holmesfield. Refreshments will be provided. This conversation time is really for the “people in the pews” rather than ministers or synod members (but PCC members and wardens would be welcome). If you would like to be part of this please get in touch with Ian no later than Tuesday, 19th October. Rev. Ian Webb, Vicar of St. Swithin’s & St. Philip’s in the Dronfield with Holmesfield Team, E:

Christian Aid Book sale The Dronfield Christian Aid Committee is happy to let you know that the annual book sale is back again (there wasn’t one last year for obvious reasons) on the morning of Saturday 23 October, 10.00 – 12.00am, in the Civic Hall.

As usual, we are asking for books (preferably paperbacks) to sell; also CD’s and jigsaws and these should be either left at the church office (during office hours) or the Civic Hall foyer (before 4.00pm from Wednesday the 13th through until Friday the 22nd, Saturday and Sunday excepted).
We’re also running the cake stall, donations of cakes etc for sale on it would be very much appreciated as well as any raffle prizes folk might feel able to donate.
We look forward to seeing you on the morning of the 23rd.

Jubilate Singers Message from Gavin Ward.
Over the past few weeks and months, I have been debating with myself; whether to resurrect the Jubilate Singers or will people have moved on due to life changes brought about by Covid.
The initial feedback is one of positivity, so I would love to start this group up again to try and get people singing and having fun after such a miserable couple of years.
As usual, practices will take place on a Friday night, at St Andrews. Starting January 2022 ready for Easter.

If you could let me know your thoughts or indeed would like to join us please let me know, it would be very useful to try and make an informed decision as soon as possible.

Our Harvest Offering for the Archer Project.
After the Harvest Service last Sunday Heike Hancox took this beautiful picture of our offerings for the Archer Project.

Cathedral Archer project write: ‘We really value your support with our Harvest appeal, it gives us vital supplies to keep the 70-90 people who use our project everyday fed with hot meals and food parcels; as well as some basic toiletries that we often take for granted’.
