“Gathered to Praise”
The Littles’ Commissioning last week
Stuart, Lynne and Matthew Little would like to express their grateful thanks for the wonderful send off last Sunday at the tea and Commissioning Service. We feel truly loved and supported. We are leaving for Dallas this Friday, 21st September (11:25 flight) to start our Mercy Ships training before travelling to Guinea at the end of October. We are very thankful to Matt and Sue (of COTG) and Julie (of 11:15 service) who have agreed to be our advocates during our Mercy Ships service. [Any volunteers from 9:15? – Tim]. Please pick up one of our bookmarks for more details and how to stay in touch with us. With our love and thanks.
Please note, the funeral of Ted Killingback will take place at Priory Street on Friday 21st September at 2pm. Please speak to Eric for more details.
The Ark starts again on Saturday September 29th

Do come along if you are 0-7ish (bring an adult to join in the fun too!) on Saturday September 29th at 10.00am at Priory Street. We will be learning about Noah’s Ark with craft, songs, bible story and of course the puppets. Finishing at 11.00am with drinks and cakes. Invite your friends too and above all please pray for this new term. Thank you.
