- Poppy Campaign
Thank you to everyone who attended services at the local cenotaphs. In this broken world today “Lest we forget” is a whole lot more than a catch phrase.

Parish Council will discuss the first draft of the 2017 budget meet at its meeting on December 14th 7:00 pm at Christ Church.
- Pledge Cards
To help the budget preparation process, the annual pledge cards will be in the churches on Sunday, December 20th. If you have not pledged before it is a very helpful thing for you and for us. Consider giving it a try this year. To those of you who pledge every year, thank you.
- Coin Jars: Collected Dec. 4th
We already have one full jar emptied, coins wrapped and the empty jar back in place. Please help the vulnerable children and Seniors in our communities have a good Christmas.
We will be collecting the jars after the Sunday services on December 4th so that the donations can be forwarded to The Norwood Lions and Smitty’s Make a Wish in good time to help these organizations with their purchases.
- Food Bank
Please think about a donation of food over the next while. Most organizations have a mechanism to help provide Christmas dinner but families are often under greater financial stress in January and the need for Food Bank support to the community increases.
- Hospice Norwood
A great deal of work is already being done to help this vision become a reality. The hospice will be available to residents of Asphodel Norwood, Havelock and Hastings. There will be a wide range of volunteer opportunities available so please consider being a part of this new venture. The next open meeting of Hospice Norwood takes place on November 29th at 7:00pm. Come out and learn what Hospice care is all about and why it matters to our local communities.
