B. Ian is back!
Many thanks to everyone for respecting my study leave and allowing me to concentrate on non-parish things for 3 whole months. It was a very helpful time. Huge thanks to the staff team and the wardens as well as everyone else who has helped to keep things running smoothly. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again.

B. Deanery Picnic Park Farm North Duffield
Picnic this afternoon! From 3pm – 5pm at Mary and John Ellwood’s farm. Postcode for sat nav YO8 5RX. At North Duffield take the farm road opposite the bowling green and club house, at the Y junction turn right (ignore the sat nav) and follow the tarred road to the farm. We are expecting to have a lovely time, with lawn games, a quiz and lots for young and old to do. Most importantly, it is a time to get together, so please do come and bring your friends, family and neighbours. There will be a short act of worship at the end led by Dunnington Church. Please bring instruments if you play, and a picnic with you. If you would like to, bring something to share too, that would be lovely! We hope you can come.

B. Reminder
If you have any events to publicise for the month of August, please send them to the Pew News editor by 6.00pm on Friday 27th July. As usual there will only be one Pew News for August. The the deadline for the next one will be produced on Friday 31st August ready for Sunday 2nd September

B. The York School of Ministry
offers theological and ministerial education on behalf of the Diocese of York, for lay ministries, those in discernment for lay and ordained ministry and those who would like to explore more about their faith and discipleship. YSOM is now recruiting for 2018-19 and will be holding a couple of informal Open Evenings for people to find out more about the modules starting in September, further details of which are available below. We would be grateful if you could distribute the attached flyer to your congregations and/ or include the details in your newsletters or websites.

B. Support Mission Aviation Fellowship
Do you have any unwanted postcards in your home? In Wheldrake Church there is a box for postcards, either used or unused, which was supplied by an M.A.F. speaker. By selling them, funds are raised which support vital humanitarian aid being flown to remote places eg Northern Uganda. For more details see

B. Home Insurance
Ecclesiastical (insurance company that insures many churches including the ones in our Benefice) is offering to donate £130 to our church each time someone takes out home insurance with them. Please visit the following link for details:

W. Prayer Tree and Prayer Box
Everyone is reminded that they are welcome to add prayers to the prayer tree on the old font, or put names or things you would like the Healing Prayer Fellowship team to pray for in the box by the door.

W. 100th Anniversary of end of World War 1
You will have noticed the Perspex figures in the pews these are part of the countrywide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of World War One, five transparent seated military figures in the pews in Church. One for each soldier from the village who lost their life in World War 1. They will move places from week to week until Remembrance Sunday. This project aims to Commemorate, Educate and Heal. they will be there as a reminder to us about their sacrifice. We will remember them.
