Junior Church, Kestrels
Thanks to everyone who helped last year. There will be a sign-up sheet in the main hall for anyone who would like to help in the kestrels group (ages 4-6) this year. Sheet runs from now until Easter and you only need to sign up for those dates when you are available.
Next Sunday at the 10.45am service we will be welcoming the friends and family of Nathan and Christine as their baby son, Reuben, is dedicated.
Life in the Lancs Lane
Steve and Ruth, our missionaries in Tanzania, have returned to Africa after a short Christmas break in the UK. They have compiled another interesting and information-packed newsletter for January. There are paper copies on the table at the back or you can visit their blog at http://www.lancsintanz.blogspot.co.uk/
The lost property table will be out for the next two weeks in the coffee hall. There is an array of items from lipstick to duvet cover, books, clothing and even a pair of rubber dolphins!! Please take what belongs to you. Whatever remains after two weeks will be disposed of.
