This year seems to have sped by so quickly, we are into the Harvest, Remembrance and Christmas periods already. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all those who support the Church whether it be Committee or members and friends of the Church. We certainly miss our Josie, who as many of you know used to keep the Church clean and fresh and was always wanting fresh flowers on the Altar, we send love, healing and many Blessings to her and family.
At this time of year we think of the hard work that the Farmers put into their daily tasks and we give thanks to them all, but we also give thanks to our Father God, who provides, the grain, wind, sunshine and rain to help grow the crops, so that we may have fresh food on our tables and that the animals have the food which they need for their nourishment. We remember those who are struggling currently to purchase food, our prayers go to all those in need. We will be donating the Harvest goods to The Food Bank, preferably not fresh food as it may go off before it can be given to those who need it. This service will be held on Sunday 8th October and Tuesday 10th October.
On Friday 27th October we will be holding a Clairvoyant Evening with Barbara Almond starting at 7.30pm, monies from the evening will be donated to The Demelza Hospice. The cost is £4 or £3.50p for Church members which will include tea/coffee and biscuits. There will also be a raffle.
Our Remembrance Service will be held on Sunday 12th November starting at 6.30pm with Mrs Gwen Legg & Chris Rahr, as you know this is when we remember those who fought valiantly for their countries some paying the ultimate price.
Friday November 24th we are holding a Clairvoyant Evening with our Fledglings, starting at 7.30pm. The cost as usual £4 or £3.50 for Church members which will include tea/coffee and biscuits, a raffle will also be held.
Our Carol Service will be held on Tuesday 12th December starting at 6.45pm, everyone is welcome, this is a lovely evening and always very busy. We have a buffet of sandwiches, sausage rolls, cakes and mince pies after the service, plus a raffle. It’s a lovely time for us all to get together and celebrate the birth of Jesus. If you would like to donate prizes for the raffle table, they will be greatly appreciated. We will also be holding a Christmas Hamper raffle.
Christmas cards for members and friends at the Church, we suggest you bring them in early as Carol Service evening is very busy. We do not post on Christmas cards.
Our last service of the year will be held on Tuesday 19th December and the medium will be myself (Jane Kaby) We will resume on Sunday 7th January at 6.30pm. During this time if you feel you need to contact me, please feel free to do so, I know this can be a lonely time for some people, but I am on the other end of the phone.
Eunice our membership secretary has asked me to remind everyone that renewal of membership will be due at the beginning of 2024, if you are interested in becoming a member of the Church, please see Eunice who will be able to give you more information.
The Committee and I, wish you ALL a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and a HEALTHY PEACEFUL NEW YEAR.
May the Blessing of our Heavenly Father, the Love of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the inspiration and comfort of the Holy Spirit be with us and all those whom we love, now and forever more. Amen.
