Christmas Day Services

A note for clarification - the Christmas Day service at 11 am is at Branston, not Potterhanworth (this is stated incorrectly in some information).  There is also a service at Nocton at 10 am as previously indicated.

Compline for All Souls

 


Resourcing Sustainable Church

The notes of the Resourcing Sustainable Church meeting held at the end of August are now available via the link. The notes refer to a "type 2" church; this should read "type 3" (also referred to as a "community church" which is the correct description).

If anyone would like more information, the Diocese of Lincoln has a web page dedicated to this important subject.

Lincolnshire Co-op's Community Champions scheme

 The latest round of voting for Lincolnshire Co-op's Community Champions scheme is now open. If you have a Lincolnshire Co-op dividend card would you please consider voting for All Saints Nocton. If we are successful we hope to purchase some new folding tables , stacking chairs & new crockery. These items would make it much easier to organise & enjoy social events in church for the benefit of the whole community.

Harvest Thanksigivng weekend

 More good news from the Harvest Thanksgiving weekend - the craft fair raised £226, and £140.60 was donated from the collection at the Harvest Thanksgiving service for WaterAid. If you weren't able to be in church at the weekend to see our beautiful new green altar frontal dedicated, here's a photo of Bishop David with it.


 

Thank you Nocton!

This is the haul from the Harvest Thanksgiving weekend and the craft exhibition that was taken to All Saints Branston Food Bank this morning.  This will make such a huge difference to families in need.  Thank you to everyone who has donated.

A new Bishop for Lincoln

Bishop Christopher leaves Lincoln at the end of December, so the search is on for a new bishop. And we’re all invited to contribute our thoughts on what sort of person we need. So what impact would you want the next Bishop of Lincoln to make across the diocese? What qualities, skills or leadership characteristics do you think they would need? What in your view are the top three priorities for the diocese in the future?


The Diocese of Lincoln is huge and very varied – from city to village, from industrial to rural, from busy suburb to remote farmhouse, from prosperous to deprived. So it’s important that a wide range of people are involved in the thinking.


You can contribute your ideas through the on-line survey on the Diocese of Lincoln website. The deadline is the end of September. Look for the survey on the website home-page. Or if you’d prefer to write in let Rev’d Lorna know and she’ll get a paper copy of the survey to you. Email lorna.brabinsmith@
btinternet.com or phone her (01522) 794868 to leave a message.

Our future - more information

This describes the types of churches that there might be in the future, so we can consider which type we are (and which type we want to become!).  We will be discussing this at the open meeting (for anyone who is interested, church-goer or not) on Tuesday 31 August at 7.30pm in church.

Our future

 Are you interested in the future of our church here in Nocton?  If so, this meeting is for you.  You don't have to be a church-goer to come.
