NOTICES

Operation Christmas Child – we are hoping to be able to deliver some gifts for the Shoebox Appeal. If you can fill a shoebox or provide any of the items on the attached leaflet we would be very grateful. Please note they can no longer accept sweets or toothpaste. They are also very happy to receive money. If you prefer you can even pack a shoebox directly on-line at https://shoeboxonline.samaritans-purse.org.uk/

Colchester Food Bank – A very big thank you to everyone who donated. We gave the Food Bank 24.6 kg of food and toiletries as well as £60 in cash.

Worship from home – Geoff is now able to record the weekly circuit service onto reusable DVDs. If anyone has any of our old ones at home please call Geoff on 545083 so that collection can be arranged.

If you need prayer or help in any way please contact your pastoral visitor or you can call Rev Joe Adams on 331413
