We offer you a very warm welcome especially if you are a visitor and we are absolutely delighted to welcome Rev Ruth Ridge who is leading our church anniversary service with Holy Communion this morning.

PRAYER

Prayer Requests – Please pray for the nations of the world so that they may come together to protect our climate.

Continue to pray for all others who are in any way troubled, lonely, unwell or bereaved and anyone else who needs our prayers.

NOTICES

Christmas Giving – it was agreed at the church council that we would support the Queen Victoria Seamen’s Rest this Christmas. This was originally set up to provide accommodation and welfare support for merchant sailors, members of the Royal Navy, the Fleet Air Arm and other units with maritime links, although they now welcome servicemen from across all the armed forces and homeless men from many different walks of life. We hope to be able to provide Christmas gifts of men’s toiletries, toothbrushes and toothpaste, knitted hats, gloves, fingerless mitts, E45 cream, hand cream for extra dry skin, sweets, chocolate and Haribos. There is a box in the entrance for your donations. Many thanks to those who have already given.
