In association with our Weekly and Monthly Prayer Groups, Richard and Rachel have instigated a Prayer Board right next to the Tea and Coffee hatch. Everyone is welcome to contribute to its contents or ask for prayers in the continuing book of prayer requests in the front lobby. Please have a look at the Prayer Board contents as you walk past, perhaps to inspire you in your own prayers.
There will be a service at 9.30 on Wednesday 25th December. The short service will be conducted by our Minister Rev. Christine Coram. We celebrate the coming of the Christ Child, lightheartedly and with Joy on this special day.
We had a 70th birthday celebratory lunch for Colin and Dave, and a 50th birthday tea party for Diane. Our thanks to all the caterers especially Margaret who is stepping down as Catering organiser.
The Italian evening turned out to be a great event and £400 was raised. This has paid for a lady to attend leadership training in Rome from one of our partnership churches in Europe.
Thank you everybody who distributed the Christmas leaflets to the houses in the neighbourhood. We hope to encourage new friends and families to share in Christmas spirit.
This will take place in the Church on Sunday 22nd December at 4. p.m. and will include Bible Readings and Carols interlaced in the traditional Manner. The service will be led by the Rev. Geoffrey Scarlett and the Church Choir.
On rememberance sunday (10th November) members of uniformed organisations paraded past the church on the way to the Service held at the Hedge End Cenotaph. We were pleased to be able to serve hot drinks to many of them on their return trip. The tea, coffee and hot chocolate was appreciated by them on a chilly day. Our thanks to all the members of the church who were involved in any way in making this initiative possible.
