B. Quiet Day
Join us for all or part of our Quiet Day at Thicket Priory on Saturday 4th May, to explore various aspects of the Easter story. There will be some short times of input and worship together, and plenty of time for quiet thought and prayer. Drinks will be available from 10.00 am. Please come at any time after that and either stay for the whole day, finishing around 3.00 pm, or just for part of it. There will be displays to help provoke thought and prayer, and the idea is that anyone can join in as much or as little of the day as suits them. Please bring a packed lunch if you’re staying all day.

D. Lead Theft Riccall
Here is an appeal from Revd Dotty Lambeth
which she’d love everyone to publicise and support. St Mary’s Riccall has had the lead stolen from its roof and needs £80,000 for replacement. They are all fund-raising as hard as they can and have now set up a just giving page as part of this effort. The web address is https:/www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/st-marys-raise-the-roof-appeal
She asks anyone who would like to donate to the site simply put the address in your browser and click on donate.

D. Discipleship Days – Dunnington
We have before us an amazing opportunity to impact our nation for Christ. 98% of the people in the Church of England are not ordained and spend 95% of our lives out in society. There we have the privilege and opportunity to serve Christ in every task we do, in every encounter we have, and every place we find ourselves – in the factory as well as the sanctuary, in the primary school as well as in the Sunday school, in the team meeting as well as in the prayer meeting. ‘The question is: how can we make the most of that opportunity? How can we, ordained and lay together, enable one another to live out the Good News of Jesus in all our life, Monday to Saturday, as well as Sunday?’ Here in the Benefice of Rural East York we want to provide the opportunity for people to grow in their discipleship, and be enabled and equipped to live that out. To do this we are organizing four Saturdays over the course of the year exploring particular themes. Each day will include some teaching, time for personal reflection and discussion, and some question and answer time. The session will finish with a bring and share lunch for those who can stay. It will be held in the Tower Room, St. Nicholas Dunnington. Dates for your diary later in the year for these days are 18 May, 6 July and 21 September. No need to book, but an indication of numbers would be helpful. Please speak to Rev. Nick Bird Rector of Dunnington (01094 489349) for further information.
