The December/January Villager is due out on 1st December. Please remember there is no January Villager so please send your articles and important dates to the editor or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Wednesday 20th November.

It’s getting to the colder part of the year and I’m helping to support a Winter Warmer appeal for NOAH enterprise who offer practical, emotional and spiritual help to homeless people living right here in Luton.
Why not have an autumnal clear out of cupboards and wardrobes?
If you can spare a winter coat, scarf, pair of gloves or jogging bottoms, please bring them to me at church any Sunday or Thursday morning. Thanks,
FREE Classical CDs
There is a box of CDs at the back of church. Please help yourselves to as many as you wish. They are entirely FREE but if you would like to give a donation, put the money in the wall safe. Thank you.
Plastic Milk Bottle Tops
Please save your plastic milk bottle tops. There is a container at the back of church for you to put them in. The tops will go towards a charity to help towards wheelchairs and other aids for disabled children. Please note that only plastic milk bottle tops are acceptable (any others are put in the recycling bin).
Don’t forget when you buy on line to use Easy Fundraising for All Saints church. We have raised over £700 for All Saints since starting to use this method of buying on the internet.
Please continue to donate tins, toiletries etc in the basket at the back of church.
We invite you to place your prayer requests into that box. Prayer requests can be anonymous but please give enough information for us to know how to pray. Your prayers will be offered up via a small group who are currently meeting on a Thursday evening.

Regular Giving. There are leaflets at the back of church explaining where our giving goes. Parish Share for Parish Ministry. This explains how the money is allocated. Please take a leaflet. Remember our church building costs £800 per week to run. Please consider giving regularly via envelopes or standing order. Contact Peter Graham(738470) for details.
Regular Giving Envelopes
The Regular Giving Envelopes are now available. If you do not yet use this method of giving please consider it as it helps provide the church with a REGULAR income as an envelope is provided for each Sunday of the year. If you don’t yet have a set they are available from Peter Graham (738470) but Ruth or a churchwarden will always pass your name on. There are leaflets at the back of church explaining how the scheme works. Setting up a Standing Order is an even better way of giving regularly – again contact me, Peter Graham, for details.
If you only give occasionally-please use the white envelopes provided in the pews which will enable us to claim back the tax on that individual gift. If you pay tax please Gift Aid your money.
