This is the Sunday when we gather to reflect on God’s goodness and make our offerings of time, talents and money, to God at a special service of thanksgiving. We return our pledge cards which are part of the offering this Sunday. These pledges will then form part of the report due in Bishop Andrew’s hands by 31st May when he will ascertain whether he can go ahead with a fulltime appointment of a new minister.
