Hedgehogs are Coming!

The hedgehogs are coming to UPC woodland inearly April!When light levels are low, or even dark,our hedgehogs will travel up to one mile in searchof food; insects, earthworms, slugs and snails. Thebest way we can protect them is to make our churchyard healthy; chemical free gardens, biodiverse meadows and eco-friendly woodland. Until they can find all our tasty bugs & slugs, we will placespecial hoglet food in our hedgehog woodland homes. Can you help set outtheir homes? Do you want to greet two weened hoglets? Thus far, we havethree families offering to gather in the churchyard on the day of arrival, you canjoin in too! We will announce the exact day and time in the Church Life.Contact Alice Barrett at alicebrt@hotmail.co.uk or Linda Polley atknickerslinda@gmail.com if you are interested or want to know more.

 

EASTER SERVICES

 

A CROSS OF FLOWERS

We would love you to join us in putting a flower in the cross this Easter. The cross will be outside in the church garden this year so tell your friends about this socially distanced way of marking Easter.

 

Giving

As you are all well aware we have, and continue to go through difficulttimes, with everyday lives variously disrupted. This of course has affected worship greatly, as we have been unable to meet together in Church (apart from a limited period last year). This has had a significant effect on giving, particularly those doing so by Weekly Envelope.

We are extremely grateful and blessed by those who have continued to give via the bank and standing order. We are also grateful for those that used to give regularly by envelope changing to bank payment, most of our supporters now doing so. A few, for whatever reason are unwilling or unable to do this, so the new financial year Giving Envelopes are ready, due to start from the beginning of April. These are ready for collection by previous arrangement (phone please), at the Parish Office, usual hours 01229 588081, or email office@ulverstonparishchurch.org. It is hoped we can re-open the Church soon, when the Envelope boxes can be made available there.

Marvellous Monument Mapping Mission

The next stage of our Marvellous Monument Mapping Mission is to verify monument numbers in our churchyard! Volunteers are needed to walk a small area of the yard with paper and pencil in hand to make notes.
This activity is Covid-19 safe, as it is done on your own time, in your own area. Contact Kristen O’Brien at knegaard@yahoo.com if you are interested, willing and able to help.

Welcoming Spring!

It is that magical time of year when flowers, Mother Nature and gardeners all gather in the churchyard! There is a wide range of activities to satisfy all interests and energy levels. If you enjoy working in the garden, please do consider joining us! Some of us meet on Wednesdays 1:30-3:30pm. Others meet on Friday mornings. Others still, visit as their schedule allows. Tea in the Garden is served (bring your own during Covid restrictions) Wednesdays 3:30-4:00pm. Consider being a part of our beautiful churchyard team!

EASTER HUNT

We are having an Easter hunt in the church garden for families. Why don’t you come and see if you can find one of our family goody bags
on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th April. Each pack has lots of fun for a family with children aged between 3-ll yrs and gives an explanation as to what Easter is all about.
