Church News Sunday 6th December

SUNDAY CLUB AND FYF Sunday Club and FYF meet today at 10.50am. As always there is a Crèche for pre-school children each Sunday morning. Due to the superb generosity of those supporting the teas/coffees, baking and stall last week the sum of £300 was raised to support Natalia.

PRAYER GROUP The prayer group will meet on Wednesday 9th December at 10.00am in the small hall.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The next meeting for Advent studies is on Wednesday 9th December in the Church hall at 1.30pm.

We’d be delighted to have you with us.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe takes place in the Church hall on Wednesday 9th December from 2pm to 3.30pm. Whether you’ve joined us before, or not, why not drop in for some tea, coffee, home baking and the all important chat? We look forward to welcoming you there.

A Place at the Table Many thanks to those who have already handed in donations for this project, to assist the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon support refugees from Syria in neighbouring countries, and displaced people within Syria. All the money collected will be sent off during the week beginning 14th December, so all donations should be put in the offering plate (in an envelope clearly marked A Place at the Table) by Sunday 13th December. Information packs are still available on the table at the back of the Church, if you want to find out about different ways of raising money, but a straightforward donation is equally acceptable.

FERINTOSH FOCUS Folders of newsletters for those who distribute the Ferintosh Focus are available to uplift from the annex.
