new or gently used coats, ski pants, hats, gloves, scarves or snowsuits? Items will be collected beginning Sunday, November 5th through February 28th, and articles can be placed in the designated boxes located in the anti sacristy and the Bala House entrance way.
 Dining In! 

“Dining In!” Is a community builder and fundraiser where for a small per person charge you can go to have a meal at someone’s home and meet others from the church or the area. The host offers their home and prepares a meal. At the end of the evening, many folk have connected, shared stories and gotten to know one another. There will be a series of 12 offerings this academic year consisting of – Small Plate meals ($20), Bistro Pub meals ($35) and Restaurant Meals ($50). See Zabeth, Mary or Virginia for more information. There are also sign up sheets posted. We seek hosts as well as diners! Bon appetit. Zabetht@gmail.com

 Altar Bread Guild

Would you like to take a turn providing the bread for the Eucharist? We have several recipes to share, or you may use your own. Please avoid delicious additions (e.g. olives!). Contact Mary Allen 215-473-0665 to join the rotation.

Volunteers – Hospitality Needs You! 

There is a new sign up sheet posted on the bulletin board. Please pick a Sunday as volunteers are needed to help with hospitality. You can choose either the 8 am or 10 am coffee hour slot on Sundays. Also, two people can sign up for the same Sunday if you’d like to provide snacks or beverages, this way its easier for both volunteers. Let’s all pitch in a Sunday!

Altar Flowers

The Flower Guild ministry here at St. Asaph’s, would be happy
to do your Sunday arrangement. The cost for a single arrangement is $40 payable to the Church of St. Asaph, in which you can send to the church office in advance or drop off. If you have any special flower requests, please feel free
to let us know.


St. Asaph Mugs

St. Asaph’s 125th Anniversary Mugs are still available for your examination at the Team Ministries Table for $10 each. Please ask someone on the committee or contact the church office if you are interested in purchasing one.
