The Parishes of St John the Evangelist Wroxall, All Saints Newchurch and
St Georges Arreton.
Welcome to our worship today. It is so good to be back once more!
Thank you for following the social distancing rules, covering your face, (nose and mouth!) and sanitizing your hands, we must do all we can to keep each other safe. Restrictions mean that we cannot take a collection in the usual way so please leave offerings in the bowl/plate at the back of church. Thank you.

An advance ‘thank you’ to all who will be decorating our Churches for the Christmas period. With such a difficult year it will be lovely to have the colour and joy that the decorations bring. I am sure all the flower arranging teams would welcome donations towards flowers at this time! If you would like to give a donation, please pop it in an envelope and write ‘Flower fund’ on the front.
At Newchurch Mrs Meek would like to remind you that flowers can be arranged in memory of a loved one or in celebration of an anniversary with a special dedication. Please contact her on 863036.
