SERVICE SHEETS, BOOKS AND HYMNBOOKS. We do wish to be careful about this and will ask you to return them to a table at the rear of Church, rather than sidespeople putting them away immediately.

These donations will go to the Afghan Community & Welfare Centre but if any other local centres need help, please let Steve know by email.


WHAT IS NEEDED:  Clothes, Shoes, Blankets, Toys, Rice, Lentils, Beans, Dried Food, Cutlery and other household essentials.


HARVEST SUPPER Aston Village Hall on October 2nd.  This will be a “bring and share” event – more details still to come, but save the date.  The Speaker will be the Rev’d Jim Cartlidge


This Sundaywe say our farewells to Rev’d Alison Hudson, as we give thanks for her Ministry here over the last 3 years. Alison will be inducted as Rector of the villages including Gnosall on October 6th – more of that to come

This Sunday afternoon we celebrate with her at Afternoon Tea in St Michael’s Hall, with an opportunity to say hello properly, also, to the Rev’d Jim Cartlidge. Make sure you have your place booked with Nichola Abbott on 814134

Once more we thank God for all he has given to us all
