RECYCLING OF CHRISTMAS CARDS and STAMPS: Please bring your cards  and used stamps along to church and deposit in the bags at the back of church throughout January where members of the Green Group will be happy to sort them deal with them. The stamps go to Christian Aid to plant trees in Africa.

Eco-Tip: Eat less meat, particularly red meat; producing 1kg of beef produces the equivalent CO2 to you driving a 300mile round trip while leaving all your lights on at home.

Howard Seymour agreed to be Director of Music at St Michael’s for 6 months, and that period comes to an end on February 11th. We have appreciated Howard’s time with us, but he recognises that the commute from Sedburgh to Headingley is not sustainable in the long term.

So we thank Howard for all that he has done for us, and wish him and Margaret all the best in their future plans.

Leeds North and West Foodbank is urgently in need of donations.  Emergency food parcels for three days are issued to people found to be in food crisis by organisations within the community.   Ninety percent of the food distributed is given by the general public. Please put donations for the Foodbank and Pafras in the boxes at the back of church. No perishable items please.


Charity of the Season:

Church Action on Poverty is a national ecumenical Christian social justice charity, committed to tackling poverty in the UK. We work in partnership with churches and with people in poverty themselves to find solutions to poverty, locally, nationally and globally.
