Church news for the week beginning 11th November 2017

This weekend’s Bible Talk

This weekend, we continue our series looking at 2 Samuel as as Jodie preaches from 2 Samuel chapter 17 verse 1 to chapter 18 verse 33, with the title, “War and peace”.

Mission of the month

Anglicare is our mission of the month. Support this ministry through the ‘Mission Table’ in the Hall.

Midweek Monthly Service

We are thankful to God for a terrific midweek service on Thursday, so we’re going to now run them on the 1st Thursday of every month (except January) at 11am, followed by a light lunch. Our next service is 7th December. Who will you invite?

Welcome to ‘Alive!’

Our new youth group has a new name: ‘Alive!’ It meets Saturday nights after dinner, during term time. For students aged years 7 to 12. See Rayne Orange for more details.

Baptism of Ethan & Gracie Gray

Greg & Jill Gray would love you to join them and their family and friends for the baptism of their children Ethan and Gracie next Saturday 18th November during our 5pm service.

Christmas Decorating for SRE

It’s great to be holding the combined SRE assembly in our church building this year. To make it an even better experience for the children could we have some volunteers to decorate the church before Thursday 30th November. The decorations can then stay for the whole Christmas period.  See Lesley Errington if you are able to help.

Working Bee

Are you free Saturday 2nd December from 8am to midday for a working bee? We’d love to spring-clean the church before our Christmas celebrations.
