December 12 – Healing Service 19:00
Advent/Christmas – Events are rapidly approaching with the first being the ‘Open For Advent’ Saturday December 15 10:00/12:00 – This will be a prelude to our keeping the church open on a daily basis up to New Year
Christmas Services – Leaflets giving full details are on the Church Table, starting with the Carol Service 19:00 December 21 – Please take a leaflet (or more if you can spread them amongst your neighbours)
Higher Tour – Following on from the visit of the Higher Tour, Tara will be running a ‘discipleship’ course during the 11:15 service. This is over 6 weeks but will be split into 3 two-week sections. The remaining dates are:-
December 9 and 16
Crib Service – Please note that this is being held at 5:00pm on Monday December 24 NOT Sunday 23rd
“Prayer Tree” We would like to reiterate that the idea was to make the ‘Prayer Tree’ a permanent feature, for anyone and everyone to use if they want to. It should be a symbol in church of a living faith within that church and used in a similar way to lighting a candle.
Christmas Cards – We will, again, instead of passing cards between ourselves, be having a tree specifically for anyone wishing to place their messages, with the chance to donate to East Anglia Children’s Hospice. This went very well last year !
