Church news for the week beginning 18th November 2017

This weekend’s Bible Talk

This weekend, we continue our series looking at 2 Samuel as Simon Chaplin preaches from chapter 19 verse 1 to chapter 20 verse 36, with the title, “The return of the King”.

Mission of the month

Church Missionary Society (CMS) is our mission of the month. Support this ministry through the ‘Mission Table’ in the Hall.

Ladies Guild Lunch

The Ladies Guild are meeting together this Wednesday 22nd November for lunch at Emma’s (‘Crust and Crumb’ at 22 Allowrie St), 12pm for a start at 12.30pm. Contact Helen Curll for further details.

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.

Community Carols

Put the date in your diary and start inviting friends! Two Saturdays before Christmas, the 16th December at 5pm.
