Almighty God,

who called your Church to bear witness

that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself:

help us to proclaim the good news of your love,

that all who hear it may be drawn to you;

through him who was lifted up on the cross,

and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

St Cuthbert's Fir Vale Food Bank collection The Food Bank box is in the Narthex (and there is also a box in Shirley). Pictures on the side show the sort of non-perishable groceries that they would like. They particularly need instant coffee. If you have anything suitable please put it in the box in the narthex.

All We Can and St Andrew’s Psalter Lane Church. St Andrew's Psalter Lane Church is now a partner with All We Can. All We Can works with some of the world’s poorest communities, helping people to find solutions to poverty and to become all that they can. Over the next few months we are planning to be involved in a community, Cherkos, in Ethiopia. They are struggling like all countries with climate change, poor harvest and few resources except their own determination and hard work. SAPLC is hoping to raise funds as well as learning more about Cherkos and Ethiopia. There is information on the All We Can website about Ethiopia. The first event will be a tea party at Southcroft on Tuesday 8th October, from 2.30 - 4.00 pm. Look for our posters in the church and further information in the weekly notices.


The Green Box

Working Party Thank you to all who helped at the Working Party on Saturday 7th and Thursday 12th September. The clearance of the compound at the back of church is making a huge difference - thanks especially to Anthony and Chris for this. The grounds generally had a good tidy-up. The next Working Parties will be on Saturday 5th and Thursday 10th October.

Cemetery Road Urban wild flower meadow The meadow attracted of lot of positive attention brightening the day of many passers-by and has become a much loved addition to the landscape helping increase community well-being and air quality. Importantly it has also provided a much needed haven for our pollinators and wildlife that are struggling in today's environment. Lansdowne Tenants and Residents Association have launched an appeal for people to donate to in order to help with next year’s wildflower meadow - visit their GoFundMe page to donate.

We will be visiting various locations throughout the year - the next meal will be at the Upper Chapel at 12.30 pm on Tuesday 24th September. If you have not attended before, these are bring and share dinners. To be inclusive of varying dietary requirements, most dishes are vegetarian (though it is fine to bring meat dishes as long as you indicate this). We love to share traditional dishes from different cultures. A kettle, microwave and oven are available to finish off or heat up contributions that need this. Savoury and sweet foods are both popular; there is no need to book or inform anybody of what you wish to bring, but if you have any queries please contact the Sheffield Interfaith website or the St Andrews Psalter Lane Church Office on 0114 267 8289. These dinners are organised and hosted by Sheffield Interfaith, they are not Shirley House Interfaith Centre events.
