International Christmas Evening:
This will be held on Sunday 16th December at 6.00pm. An informal evening of Christmas food from around the world, music and readings. This is a low-key event so please invite your friends.
Any help with food, music, readings etc. would be welcome. Please sign the sheet at the back of church if you can provide Christmas food for a finger buffet. Please speak to Patrick for any other contributions
Toy and Gift Service
This will take place next Sunday 9th December. Please would you provide donations of children’s toys and gifts for the mums to be donated to Boston Women’s Aid. Thanks.
Please remember the food box, which can be found to the right-hand side of the crèche area, and place any items you would like to donate in it. The next recipient of our donations will be Centerpoint. Please leave donations of cleaning materials and toiletries in a bag next to the food box rather than putting in with the food. Thanks.
Can You Help With Practise Your English?:
Practise Your English is a monthly meeting on a Saturday, where oversees students from Boston College come to church to
practise speaking English. We need more people to help this year. All you need to be able to do is chat to the students, drink tea or coffee, eat biscuits and stay for a simple lunch. We meet at 10.30am and finish around 2.00pm. Please speak to Patrick.
Bottle Tops for the Air Ambulance:
Many thanks to all who donate milk bottle tops to be recycled. This raises money for the local Air Ambulance. Please remember that the tops MUST be free of any paper labels or foil inserts and can ONLY be the standard plastic milk bottle tops which are semi-transparent (see the picture on the collecting box which is on the table at the back of church).
Stamps and Postcards
If you have any used stamps or postcards could you save them please. Kathy is collecting them for the Baptist Missionary Society World Mission.
If you have collected any stamps recently could you please let Kathy have them. Thank you.
A flower rota / calendar is on the back table for anyone who wishes to donate flowers to mark a special date or if they would like to help arrange them. Please add your name next to the required date. For more information please see the rota or speak to Carole McMillan or Jill Massey, thanks.
