We are the FAB parishes - made up of three villages: Finningley, Auckley and Blaxton, and two churches: Holy Trinity and St Oswald, in Finningley and St Saviour in Auckley.

We are friendly and welcoming to all and this is perhaps represented in the diversity of our congregations. Each church has a mix of ages from babies in their 'noughties' to the more mature in their nineties, and each has singles, couples aEveryone is welcome to join and support Hannah as she is
commissioned as our Youth and Families Worker on Sunday the
4th of September, 4:30 pm at St Michael's Church in Rossington.
It will be a short joint service led by the Archdeacon of Doncaster
followed by a bun fight. For more information have a chat with
Neil or Hannah.nd families.

We enjoy a mix of service styles, from the traditional Book of Common Prayer, right through to those with a contemporary feel.
(Please see our church service details for when particular services take place)

We have a good sense of humour, as does our Rector Neil, and have joy in our faith and our fellowship.

Giving Envelopes - I have the new blue giving envelopes for Finningley next year and I will be sorting them out in the next few weeks. If you would like a set of envelopes please speak to me. You do not have to be a taxpayer to use these but if you are we can claim the tax back on your donations at no cost to yourself. If you prefer not to use the envelopes you could set up a standing order direct from your bank account should you wish to do so. If you have any changes to your existing envelopes that you would like making then please talk to me.
Thank you. David Liddle Mob: 07905 054256

Unfortunately our re-ordering funding has not lived up to expectations leaving us with a shortfall of £80,000. So as part of trying to bridge that shortfall we are asking people to pledge to buy a chair at £150 each. Have a word with Paul Reeves if you would like to pledge. Sale of the pews is also planned and will be available to buy soon, again, have a word with Paul to register your interest. Gift aiding any pledges or donations using the envelopes in church will also help giving the church extra without cost to yourselves.

Thank you to every one who has supported Messy Church School, through donating their loo and kitchen roll tubes. Could you continue to donate, please. Could I also ask for 2 litre empty clear plastic pop bottles please. We have a messy activity for our January session where we will need the plastic bottles. Very many thanks for all your contributions, they add to the success for messy church school, where we have such fun. Thank you. Susan
