TEAM SERVICE – 31 October, Holy Trinity Blythburgh.  All Souls’ Service, 31 October, St Edmund, Southwold On October 31st we will celebrate All Saints Sunday with a Sole Bay Team Service of Holy Communion at Holy Trinity Blythburgh at 11.15.  Rt Revd Mike Harrison, Bishop of Dunwich , will preach and preside.  All Saints is one of the great festivals of the church year, and it will be an opportunity for all our churches to worship together.

In the afternoon at St Edmund’s at 3pm we will hold our annual All Souls service, at which we remember departed loved ones.  The names of those we remember will be read out and there will be an opportunity to light a candle in loving memory. Please pass any names to be remembered to your Vicar.

We do hope you will feel welcome to attend either or both of these services.

Sole Bay Foodbank – A very big thank you to the churches in the Team who collected food for the Foodbank at their Harvest Festivals this year. An amazing amount was collected for which the Lowestoft Food bank is extremely grateful. Demand for emergency food parcels is still ongoing especially as Lowestoft Foodbank serves all the towns and villages to the east of the A12 from Lowestoft down to Leiston. There are still some shortages in the Warehouse and the following items would be appreciated; Tinned tomatoes, tinned potatoes, tinned veg, tinned meat, tinned fruit, fruit juice, coffee, tea, & long life (UHT) milk. Once again thank you for all your support.
