 The Smugglers Trail

  Trudie has been busy again, this time trying to recruit

  New members for the Smuggling gang – The Pakefield

  Roaring Boys! Have you got what it takes? Follow and

  solve the clues and decode the secret message! Forms

  are at the back of the church from today for £2.00 each

  (please put money in wall safe).

  Digest Distribution

  We are looking for someone to take over from Judith

  Betts, who has done this job superbly over many years

  now, and wishes to move on to something new. It

  entails keeping a record of those who have the Digest

  delivered by our faithful band of folk each month, and

  recording the money collected before passing it to our

  treasurer. For further details please contact Judith on   

  07753 613433 or the church office for more details.

 Christians together in Lowestoft and District.

   (from Mary Hunt) 

   Help! I have nearly come to the end of volunteers to  

   write articles for the “A View from the Church ” column

   in the Lowestoft Journal. Thank you to all who have

   contributed this year.


   The column is a way for us to share our Christian Faith    

   with the Community –

  1. Length of article 300-350 words max
  2.   Your name and Church
  3. Submit a photo if you like
  4. Article to arrive at the Journal on the MONDAY

   before the Friday publication.

 Please contact Mary Hunt on:


   or for more information speak to Sharon.

   No access to a computer? don’t worry, you can pop

   your handwritten article through the Rectory door!


 Church Finance

  As mentioned in our sermons today and at our Annual

  meeting, there are leaflets about giving to the work of our

  church here at Pakefield, at the back of the church. If  

  anyone has any innovative ways in how we can raise  

  funds, please contact Sharon! One easy way is by

  reclaiming money free from the Government through Gift

  Aid. (see below).


 Gift Aid

  If you are now giving your donations to the church by

  standing order or white envelopes and are not gift

  aiding, please will you consider using this scheme (a

  good way to bring extra income to our church).


  If you are a taxpayer and choose to gift aid your giving,

  please get a form from me. Many thanks.
