Easter Lilies


Donations towards the cost of Easter lilies can be placed in the envelopes provided at the back of the church.  If you would like to make your donation in memory of a departed loved one please write their name on the envelope.  The envelopes should then be placed in the wall safe by the South Door.  A list of all the names will be placed on the Altar and read out on Easter Day.

“The Annual Parishioners Meeting” (to elect churchwardens) and “The Annual Parochial Church Meeting of the Parish of St. Ippolyts” will be held in St. Ippolyts Church at 7.00pm. on Tuesday 9thApril 2019.  Everyone is welcome to attend but only those on the St. Ippolyts Church Electoral Roll may vote at the second meeting.  The meeting is the Church’s AGM and there will be a review of 2018 with reports from the Churchwardens, our Treasurer, and St. Ippolyts School, as well as the appointment of officers, sidesmen and independent financial examiners. To make the evening ‘go with a flow’ there will be wine, soft drinks and nibbles available.

The Church Electoral Roll is closed before the Annual Parochial Church Meeting, on Monday 18thMarch 2019.  This year everyone has to renew their application to be on the church electoral roll, so please make sure you complete one of the forms, which are available at the back of the church. 

We are looking for new members of our Parochial Church Council.  If you are interested in playing a key role in the future of our church please consider putting yourself forward for election, it is not a particularly onerous task!  Those wishing to be elected can put their names on the election list at the back of the church.  In addition we are still seeking a treasurer to take over from Michael.  If you feel you could spare the time to play an important roll in the life of our church please consider taking on this task.

News of 2018 Shoe Box appeal


No, it’s not time to start thinking about this year’s one just yet, but I have just received an update from Link to Hope about the 2018 appeal which reads as follows:

‘A huge thank you to everyone that took part - we couldn’t have done it without you.  Sending 40,000 shoeboxes to Eastern Europe is no mean feat and we are so grateful to all the schools, churches, businesses and individuals who sent their love in a shoebox to poor and marginalised people in over 400 locations in Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria and the Ukraine.’
