We are going to be holding a Bible Study on the Book of Ruth (theme: borders and belongings) on Tuesday evenings at 7pm. The first session will be this Tuesday, 19 Oct in church.

Please take a look at our Black History Month exhibition in church. Thank you so much to those who have been willing to be interviewed, and to those who have carried out the interviews. In choosing to celebrate six lives, we're very aware that we miss many people out. For that reason there are some cards at the back of church. If people would like to write their names on the cards and any key information they'd like to put down, do please add them to the Black History Month board at the back of church.

We've also had a very kind offer from Barbara Altounyan to record some life stories if people would like to follow that up. The recordings will become their property. If you'd like to have your story recorded please contact Barbara on 07712 534 399 or

Shana would like to start up a club for our young people, but she needs a second adult. To find out more, please speak with Shana.

Please bring in any empty plastic water bottles, or similar - we're interested in collecting the ones where the base looks a bit like a flower (so that they can be used for a Junior Church project for making poppies).

We are re-establishing serving at the altar. If you would like to become an altar server, please have a word with Andrew. All welcome!

We're looking for more volunteers to either assist with or lead Junior Church on Sunday mornings. If you'd like to know more, please speak with Estelle or Susan.

Free Will Offering yellow envelopes for the year ahead are available to collect at the back of church. Please could you print your name next to the envelope number you are collecting (or cross your name off the list if you no longer wish to donate using this scheme). Standing Order forms are also available.

Our All Souls Day service will be at 7pm on Tues 2 November. If there are names you would like read out at this service please sign the list at the back of church.
