General Notices11th February




Prayer News from our Missionaries



We receive regular updates and prayer requests from the missions and missionaries who we support.  Today, there’s a new CMI Asia prayer news, and also an update from the Schools Work Trust.  Please pick up a copy today - and do check for any others you haven’t yet seen.





About our special offering for Vukovar, Croatia


Thank you to everyone who has given so generously to our appeal in support of our dear friends in Vukovar.  The special offering for them totalled £2,100 and we add £600 from the church funds, making a total of £2,700 which will be transferred to them this week.


As Alan and Joyce saw and heard first-hand last October, they are so very grateful for the love gifts we send.  Their income is still very tenuous and depend on the faithfulness of God’s people to supply their needs.  It is a great privilege to be able to share with them in the cause of the Gospel.





Sunday Morning Sermons on-line



Don’t forget that our Sunday morning preaching series sermons are now available to listen to on our web site.  We hope that this will be a source of blessing for folk who can’t get here, and mean that potentially a wider audience can access our Bible teaching.  Or you can even choose to ‘listen again’!


Have you explored this yet?  On the www.thcw.org.uk web site, there is an option called ‘Audio’, and there you will see the whole planned series.  Each week’s talk will be uploaded by Monday evening (possibly sooner) and you simply click on the Title to hear it.


Once you’ve tried it, it would be great to know what you think of it.






Flipping Pancake Party


How exciting!  We’re going to have a Flipping Pancake Party here on Shrove Tuesday – Pancake Day – 13th February.  The church will be open from 12 noon to 2 pm and you are welcome to come and enjoy a pancake (or two!).


This is a Christians Against Poverty national initiative to engage with anyone who supports, or benefits from, CAP’s ministries, and to spread the word wider.


Please pick up an invitation card and plan to pop in.  There’s an open invite to anyone and it’s a great opportunity to introduce a friend to CAP or to Church.  So, we would love you to decide that you’ll come along!  Please do!


The event is free but donations in support of Christians Against Poverty will be welcome.
