St Edmund of Canterbury, Hayes


Tomorrow October 2nd is our Harvest Festival, an All-age service with the baptism of Reece and Scouts Church Parade.


Please do bring in non-perishable food items and toiletries for our foodbank.


After the service we will be holding McMillan Cancer Support Charity Coffee Morning and Bake Sale during our usual refreshments slot at 11am.  Please think about possibly baking something and bring some money to buy cakes and maybe a donation too.  Feel free to invite friends and neighbours to this - of course they would be welcome to come to the service first.

If you would like to donate but can’t be there tomorrow there is a fundraising page here


After no-one turned up to the Youth Service on Sunday last, we are having a re-think about what we can do to support our high-school children.  If anyone has any thoughts I would be glad to hear them.
