Jumble sale - on Saturday 8 October  in the hall 10am-11.30am. Please take a poster/flyer to advertise the event. Thank you.

Christmas Bazaar - The Fundraising Team is starting to think about preparations for this year’s Bazaar and we are calling on your kind generosity and support to make this event a success. We need: donations for the stalls (list to go up shortly on the notice board), bottles for the Bottle Tombola Stall (we need 100), new or as new gifts for the Gift Stall and good quality Bric-a-brac. Labelled boxes will be placed under the table in church for your donations. Other donations requests will appear in the forthcoming weekly sheets along with a list to enrol helpers to run the stalls/refreshments and set up.

Parish Magazine contributions - Do you ever cook? Then you can share recipes. Do you read? Recommend your favourite book. Heard a good joke? Share it! Seen something/been to somewhere interesting? Write a few words about it. Your contribution will make the magazine more interesting. Please try to respect the closing dates for contributions otherwise we cannot guarantee your article will be published that same month. Next deadline: 23 October.

Holy Communion - is now under both kinds during weekdays at Low Masses for those who wish to have the Chalice as well. If you have cold/flu/COVID symptoms, you must abstain from the Chalice. Intinction, as way of receiving, is not possible.

Prayer list - Please remember to update the list, writing the names of those for whom you wish the Mass to be offered during the week - living or departed. You can also request the Mass being offered for other intentions - such as for peace, for those who struggle financially, for inner peace, for reconciliation, in thanksgiving, etc. (You can send names and prayer intentions by email as well.)

Warm Welcome - It has been decided that we will be able to use the hall and conference room on Fridays and Saturdays 10am-4pm. We will provide light refreshments, a quiet room and facilities for families. More details will emerge later and we think the scheme will start mid-October, depending on the weather. A list is up on the noticeboard for volunteers to sign up.

Medicine blister packs - These are recyclable but must be collected separately. In the church there is a box where you can put yours and we will take them for recycling. You not only help the planet (which is our Christian duty) but also Macmillan Cancer Support nurses as we take the blister packs for recycling where they give a donation after each recycled blister pack to Macmillan nurses.

Ukraine - Please, remember that the war is not only still happening but the situation is worsening. Our prayers and fasting is still needed. Fridays and Saturdays are traditionally days when it is most fitting to offer some partial fasting or abstinence.

In the church, under the “St. Bede window” there is a Cross as a visible focus point of our prayers for peace. Let us not forget about our brothers and sisters living the horrors of this evil, destructive war. You are invited to recite daily the following prayer:

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

St Paul's

St Paul’s is a lively, forward-looking Anglican church in the Catholic tradition. We are affiliated to the Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda and our PCC has passed the resolution seeking episcopal oversight from the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.

We are part of the diocese of Salisbury and the Deanery of Weymouth and Portland. We maintain very close links with our Voluntary Aided School, Beechcroft St. Paul’s.
