The CD’s are fascinating to listen to, any one can pop along to the church you are most welcome to hear them.

Garden Party News

Our sincere thanks go to Graham and Sara Shaw for being such fantastic hosts for the Garden Party on July 13th.

What a great success, the mouth-watering strawberry tea’s and home-made cakes were yummy and everyone was given a really warm welcome, the garden looked nice and stalls inviting

The day was all about generous giving and we would like to thank you all for doing just that.  The time, effort and help that people gave was very much appreciated and encouraging.

About £1000 a month is needed to keep your church open,  in good repair and there for you when you need it most, it is the responsibility of the community of Paull to work together and support events,  we would like to thank those who did come along on Saturday it was great to see you

Once again many thanks to  our hosts for such a lovely day in the sunshine, the funds raised was a real bonus

New South Door for the Church

New South Door for the church

The PCC has worked hard to secure funding for a new South Door.

The old door was in a state of bad repair, rotten and let lots of draft in – in the winter months

We would like to thank all those who have supported our fundraising events, used the coffee shop within the church, given donations or grants, it is very much appreciated.

The new door is now in place and looks fantastic, the light oak finish complements the main north door entrance.

Come and see how good it looks for yourself, the coffee shop within the church is open every Saturday and Sunday 2 till 4pm, March to October, you will receive a warm welcome and there is lots of yummy home baking to sample along with a great cup of tea or coffee.

Riverside Pop in coffee shop

Thr ‘Riverside Pop in Coffee Shop’ will re-open for the 2013 season on Sunday March 24th 2013. The coffee shop within the Church will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 2.00pm to 4.00 pm between Sunday 24th March 2013 through until October 2013. The coffee shop is a significant source of income and is important in keeping our church open for everyone. Many people come to enjoy the architecture of this 14th Century Mediaval Church. We have our own Heritage Trail, a walk that starts and finishes at the church and takes about 2 hours to complete. A book is available from the Church that not only guides you round the trail but explains the history of the village which dates back to the Domesday Book. This year we have added a new glass porch to the building that will not only further protect the building itself but also increase your own comfort. You may just like to enjoy a quiet cup of tea/coffee and homemade cakes an prices that give excellent value. The tranquility of the Church and beauty of the Church leads many visitors to want to pray quietly at the alter or light a candle in memory of someone. Please feel free to enjoy our church in any way you wish.

The running costs of the Church amount to approximately £1,000 per month and, since it has opened, the coffee shop has proved to be a major contributor to the those costs.

Volunteers needed to run the coffee shop

The coffee shop is open every Saturday and Sunday between 2.00pm and 4.00pm and needs just a few more volunteers to help in the coffee shop which provides the main income that allows the church to remain open. If you are prepared to just give a couple of hours every now and then it would be greatly appreciated. The coffee shop provides not only teas and coffee but a fantastic surrounding to meet other people or even to have a quiet moment for yourself.

If you can spare even a few hours then please phone Mandy Annison on 01964 626115 or Kay Burn 01964 626228 who will be only too pleased to answer any questions you may have.

PCC Meeting

There will be no Parochial Church Council meeting in August

New Porch for the Church

Great news for the congregation and friends of the church of St Andrew.  We have secured the funding through fundraising and grants for the installation of the new glass lobby within the main north door entrance.

Work will begin towards the end of January and the lobby should be finished for the opening of the “Riverside coffee shop” within the church on the 25th March 2012.

We hope this addition will help keep our heating bills down: fuel for heating is very expensive for this large building and eats up a great deal of our income. It will also promote a more welcoming entrance with an open door approach and create a warm atmosphere for those wishing to spend time in the church whether for worship, pleasure, refreshments or learning about their heritage.

We wish to thanks all those who have supported the church events throughout 2011, all those who have helped promote the church as a community building and those who have given generous grants or contributions for such schemes to succeed.  We would like to thank (defra) “LEADER” Coast, Wolds, Wetlands & Waterways (The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development Europe, investing in rural areas, supported by Yorkshire Forward the region’s development agency) for their continual support with funding. Without their support it would be hard for the building to survive in today’s society and also meet the social needs of the wider community.

Thank you to those who give their time freely and do so much volunteer work for the good of others.

May God bless those involved and those who support the work of the church family, give them the strength to carry on and encourage them to share faith and love with others and in the community.
