Charities

The charity we are supporting from December to February is Gambling With Lives, a charity that aims to support families who have been bereaved by gambling related suicides; and raise awareness amongst gamblers, their families and friends, and health professionals of the dangerous effects of gambling on mental health and the high suicide risk www.gamblingwithlives.org

Christian Aid for Displaced Refugees in Lebanon and Iraq Is the charity we are supporting to raise £5000 over 2 years and donations are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your continued support to all these charities.

 

 

The Holy Habit for January is

Eating Together

Save the dates: On Sundays 16 Feb and 15 March 2020 after the church lunch Tim will lead us in a discussion of "God in Love Unites Us: Report on Marriage and Relationships" for which we are requested to respond. Copies of the report will be available for everyone in the New Year.

Holy Habits book club

Our next book to read is Seeking Aliveness by Brian McLaren. I plan to order some copies in the next couple of weeks, so if you would like a copy, the price looks like being £7.91ish! Please let me know. We are due to discuss it on 22nd March with Tim (Crome) after the morning service.

If you would like to suggest a Quarterly Charity for our church to support, please see a member of the Leadership team. We would particularly welcome suggestions of smaller charities where our contribution might make a significant difference.

In our first year of fundraising, we have raised over £3200 for the Christian Aid Community Partnership. If you have any inventive ideas for fundraisers for the remaining £1800 during 2020, please see a member of the Leadership Team.

42nd Street. Ellesmere Theatre Co on Thursday 12th March church outing to Montgomery Theatre.

 

Please let Christine Rowe know if you would like to come. I’m collecting names during December and money (£13) during January please.

Banner Cross Walking Group: Our next ramble is on Saturday, the 1st of February, 2020, and consists of a short, easy, 3-mile walk starting in Great Longstone. Please meet at Church for transport by 09h30.

Jigsaw Pieces. To our embarrassment, we couldn't complete David Green's jigsaw on Sunday morning as two pieces were missing!  I've promised to deliver them as soon as they appear so if you have them please leave the piece/s in my pigeonhole ASAP. Thanks in anticipation, Jackie

Read the Bible in a Year (or at least some of it).

From 1st January we are continuing our “Holy Habit” of Biblical Teaching by encouraging you to read the Bible in a structured way. We have a daily plan for the New, Old or both Testaments. It works on 5 days a week, so either you get 2 days off, or have some catch-up time. We will also have short monthly meetings after Sunday morning worship for people to share how they are getting on to encourage one another. The leaflets are in the foyer.

It is not too late to take up the challenge – leaflets available in the foyer. See Rachel Tomlinson for more information

Advent windows, Many thanks to our flower artists who decorated the windowsills with the four Advent themes; these were beautiful and thought-provoking.

The Holy Habit planning group thought we should have another visit to the Ethiopian restaurant. So I have booked a table for Saturday 1st February for 7.30pm. Please let me know if you wish to join us.

The film for the usual monthly film club in February will be Paddington. Usual time 1:30pm on 1st February.

Brenda Martin will be moving into Rose Cottage Nursing Home for respite care with a view to this becoming a permanent move. This is a very nice Home, near Crystal Peaks close to where her daughter Lesley lives. I am sure she will welcome visitors and cards from well-wishers.
