Need a lift to the Easter service?: for most of us it is simple to walk, cycle or drive to church whenever we wish to attend a service. However, for some members of our community, this is not practical. The next major festival in the church calendar is Easter. If anyone wants to attend the 11am service on Easter Sunday but needs a lift, please would you contact Peter and Barbara Harris on 01423 358416 and they will try to link you up with someone who can help. Please also use the same number if you are someone who can offer help.

Spring flowers: last year’s display of spring flowers and daffodils in church was so beautiful that it would be lovely to repeat such a display again this Easter. If you would like to donate bunches of spring flowers/daffodils or vases filled with them, please deliver them to Tockwith Church on Saturday, March 30 between 10-11am. Angela Gastrell and Barbara Harris will be at the church to meet you. Vases can be collected after the service on Sunday, March 31. Please ring Angela on 01423 358256 if you would like to talk about donating flowers or helping to arrange them on the Saturday.
