 Week commencing 15th September 2019

There they shall be in great terror,
   for God is with the company of the righteous.
You would confound the plans of the poor,
   but the Lord is their refuge.


O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion!
   When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people,
   Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad.

Psalms 14: 5-7

Charities

 The Charity we are supporting from September to December is the Sheffield Neurocare Glioblastoma Appeal.

This is a cancer of the brain & is responsible for the deaths of 5.000 lives every year.

The appeal urgently needs to raise £70.000 to continue research, to find a way of extending the life expectancy of patients.

Sadly at present, patients will only survive for between one to two years.

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.

The Archer Project is in need of a continuing supply of Pot Noodles, tinned fish or fruit with ring pulls and breakfast cereals. Don’t forget to support the Food Bank with an extra item when you do your shopping. Please donate unwanted clean clothing/shoes/blankets/sleeping bags to Ben’s Place via Alan Brailey.

 

The Holy Habit for September & October is Making More Disciples

Holy Habits Book Club

The novel chosen for the Holy Habit, 'Making More Disciples', is: "Mr Rosenblum's List: or Friendly Guidance for the Aspiring Englishman" by Natasha Solomons (Sceptre, 2010).  At the outset of WWII, Jewish refugees Jack and Sadie Rosenblum, plus baby daughter, escape Berlin, bound for London.  They are greeted by a pamphlet instructing immigrants to act like 'the English'. This is an amusing story with an underlying serious theme - how to be accepted in a foreign land.  It could stimulate conversation about our aims in life and the values we choose to guide us.  The discussion will take place after the Morning Service on Sunday 20th October.

Save The Date!! Saturday 28th September.

Continuing our “habit” of Fellowship, I have booked a table at a Chinese restaurant. If you’d like to attend and have the opportunity of tasting lots of different Chinese dishes let me know. Paula

***********************************************************************************

Our new British Gas supply to the Church has been delayed (again!) by Sheffield City Council, owing to staff sickness. Therefore, work will now take place next Sunday morning (Sunday, 22nd September) There may be both some noise and possible disruption to car parking and vehicle access at the front of the Church during this gas installation, which is estimated to be completed within the morning. We will worship in Room 2, so as to minimise disruption to our service.

Advanced notice: We are having a MacMillan coffee morning on Saturday 28th September at Banner Cross Church 10am to 12 noon. 

There will be a cake stall, so items of baking will be gratefully received for the stall. 

They can be brought in on Friday 27th September or the Saturday morning.

Hoping to see you there.

We are accepting gifts at church on Saturday or Sunday morning of the Harvest weekend.

The service will be followed by our Harvest Lunch of Soup and Cakes. All are welcome on the day, but to get an idea of numbers, please could you sign up on the sheet in the porch if you would like to come.
