The food will go to the Corsham Foodbank and the money will be shared between Tearfund and the Oasis Refugee Centre in Vienna. Please use the gift aid envelopes.

Gift of God’s grace for our growth in Christ
This is the name of the ladies’ bible study for the school calendar year 2016-2017! Our women will come together to address the theme of “One Anothering” from scripture and how God actually uses our relationships with one another to conform us into Christ’s likeness. Every relationship, even difficult ones, is a gift of God’s grace for our growth in the knowledge and likeness of Christ. If you would like to be involved, please contact Kathy Larkman, Anne Holmes or Vicky Stevenson. Also check Grace Place blog for additional information.
Please take a sheet about the studies from the table at the back as well as a note on one-to-one meetings which we call Study Buddies.
