St Cuthbert’s Notes
Foodbank Next Sunday is Easter Day but we are still making our usual monthly collection for the foodbank at Holy Trinity. Please give what you can. Thank you. Susan Clark.
We are undertaking a review of membership information. Our membership booklet is now outdated and it is also important for us to comply with new regulations concerning data. There are forms available at the back of the church. It is essential that each member of the congregation completes a form and returns it by the given date.
Thank you for your cooperation in this important administrative task.

Everybody from any church across the Diocese is invited to come and join in a great celebration of our shared life and faith. The Big Day is an exciting opportunity for all people and congregations to get together. It’s a chance to learn from each other and rejoice in who we are as God’s family and in the good news we are called to share.
With refreshments from 10am, the event starts at 10:30am and for a few hours the Cathedral will become a glorious all-age extravaganza of worship, prayer, workshops, lunch, Eucharist and a hub of resources, all finishing by 2.30pm.
