Queenie Halliwell

Our dear sister Queenie went to be with the Lord on Wednesday 13th July after a short illness. There will be a thanksgiving service for her life at Priory Street on Thursday 4th August at 12pm, followed by refreshments at Cumberwell Park Golf Club, Bradford-on-Avon, B15 2PQ. Queenie was keen for as many of her friends to attend as are able. If you wish to go to the Golf Club after the service please let Eric Seager know so that the family may cater accordingly.

Church members’ meeting

BUILD – The South West Men’s Convention 2022: brothers, you are warmly invited to attend this convention on Saturday 15th October at St. Michael’s Centre, Stoke Gifford. When so much of our lives is absorbed by the trivial, what are we doing that will last? This is the question that Adrian Reynolds, FIEC Head of National Ministries, and Jonathan Thomas, pastor of Cornerstone Church Abergavenny, will be seeking to answer. For more information click here.

Retrieve your stuff from church….

Anne H is intending to do a deep clean of the church next month. If you’ve left any pots, dishes, tupperware, items of clothing, random objects, husbands or pets at the church, please collect them before the first week of August or they will be sent to charity 🙂 🙂
