This will take place on Monday 9th December at 7:30pm in the church hall.  Women from all the services (and their friends) are invited to the now traditional “Christmas Curry and Cocoa” evening where we gather together to celebrate Jesus and have great fellowship and food (from Moonlight).  Cost is £10 per person.  There is a sign-up sheet at the back of Church; alternatively mention to Anne H, Christine C, or Vicky K and you will be added to the list.  If you have any dietary needs, please indicate. Look forward to seeing you!

Sponsored  Compassion Child – Monthly Rate Increase.

We have been informed by Compassion UK that with effect from April 2020 the monthly rate to sponsor a child will be increasing from £25 to £28 per month.  If you already sponsor a child, you will be receiving a letter to inform you of the changes. If the increase will cause any financial difficulties for you, there is the option of continuing to sponsor your child at £25 and Compassion will make up the difference.  Please speak to Wendy R (Mission Ministry Leader) if you would like to discuss this matter further or if you would like to sponsor a Compassion Child.  Thank you.

Message from the Lancasters!

“Greetings from Tanzania! We arrived safely in Dar last Sunday night after a long day in the air – this time, with all of our luggage!! We then travelled on to Morogoro on the Monday and arrived in a downpour – albeit a very warm downpour! We found our house in good order – but had to spend two days car-cleaning due to a thick layer of fungus & mould growing on the seats! Oh the joys! It’s been great to have been back with the church family over the last seven months, and we’ve appreciated your hospitality and support – many thanks, and see you in two years”.
