Community Christmas Dinner:
We are hoping to host a Christmas dinner on Christmas Day in the church halls. This is being organised by Jane Bainbridge who is the facilitator for the ‘Meet & 2 Veg’ group. The meal will be between 12noon and 2pm, but in order for it to take place, we require a number of volunteers.
We are looking for some volunteers to peel vegetables and set up tables etc in preparation and to help serve the meal on Christmas day. We also require some members who are existing key holders to be there on the day. Hours that require coverage will be 6pm till 10pm on Christmas Eve for prep work. And 10am till 4pm on Christmas Day for prep work, cooking and serving the meal and clearing up afterwards. If you could give any time – even just 1 hour over these hours, that would be wonderful.
Please contact – Jane Bainbridge at the following e-mail moc.liamgnull@63514oicsepanac if you can volunteer and cc David Young (moc.dlrownepotbnull@34gnuoy.divad) so we can keep tabs on the people that are key holders and who will be volunteering.

If you phone them with your order & arrange for them to be picked up, you will save the delivery charge. Karen can get your cards at the beginning of November.

The Prayer Tree is situated inside the main door entrance, for anyone in the church and community who wishes to add a prayer to it. You can write your prayer on one of the supplied labels, and either put it on the tree or into the prayer box. The ministry team will look at the prayers regularly and pray for you. ‘Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will answer you.’ (Jeremiah 29.12).
