Covid Restrictions
In the light of the government announcement extending Covid restrictions, the trustees have decided to delay the easing of seating limits in Church until further notice. The current pattern of two groups attending alternate weeks will therefore continue. 
Bingley And Holme Wood Foodbanks

The Foodbank in Bingley is in need of the follwoing, which can either be left in the baskets in church or dropped off at Jackie Burrow's home on Otley Road:
  • Tinned custard
  • Sugar
  • Meat paste
  • Tinned fruit
  • Small jars of coffee
Anyone wishing to support tyhe Holme Wood Foodbank is invited to make an electronic donation to the TEC bank account or to send a cheque to Sharron Arnold (but made out to The Eldwick Church and not Holme Wood) and this will be passed on to Gary and Helen, as we are not yet delivering to Holme Wood.
Notice Sheet via Mailchimp
Sue will be away from the Church office from 24 June - 11 July.  Sharron Arnold is kindly providing cover with the notice sheet.  If you have any copy for Sunday 4 or 11 July , please send it directly to:   Many thanks!
We're reinstating the Prayer Tree shortly and invite you to put your prayer requests/petitions on the outreaching branches.  We plan to remove the requests and include them in intercessions at our service on September 5th.
The Mission Giving Group (Dorothy Walker, Rowena Gillow, Carleen Richardson and Sharron Arnold) is to meet on Friday 9 July to allocate some of our Mission Giving budget. If you would like them to consider a particular charity, please speak with one of the members or email so they can consider requests at that meeting.
Celebrating communion together has been deeply missed by many people during the pandemic.
We are hoping to gradually return to holding regular communion services as part of our worship in the near future, being mindful of safe practices. This has been agreed by the trustees.
Providing government restrictions do not prevent it, the plan is as follows:

4th July                  9.15 Informal communion service
1st August             9.15  Informal communion service
5th September     9.15  Informal communion service
19th September   10.30  Family communion
3rd October          9.15  Informal communion service
17th October        10.30  Family communion

These will be alternately led by Methodist and Anglican ministers. (We do not plan to use the BCP Anglican communion service at the moment, rather we will use a more up to date and accessible form of service).
Eldwick Gala 
The Gala has been re-arranged for Saturday 14 August.  We would like to offer the church premises as a café but need a bit of help.   The initial plan is to offer refreshments, cakes and scones on the lawn as well as in the church & the Link. 
Please can you have a think and sign up for a slot either helping in the kitchen, serving, washing up, taking money or baking a cake/ scones etc. A sign-up sheet is now available.  Alternatively, contact Susan Rishworth or Julie Smith. 
The Link Café is now operating indoors.  Opening times are 9.30 am - 12.00 noon on Tuesdays for drinks, home-made scones & cake and 10.00 am - 1.30 pm on Thursdays, which includes light lunches from 11.30 am.  
Friday Night Bible Takeaway continues at 7.00 pm each week.
