Thank you to everyone who worked hard to make Remembrance Sunday run so smoothly today as we served God and our village on such an important day for so many. It was a great team effort.

**** This Week ****
Teddy Bear Church
On Monday at 9.30am is our gathering for pre-school children and their carers, with craft, bible story, songs and prayer.
Messy Afternoon Tea
On Monday at 3pm is our fun afternoon for any who have left school! Please join us for a short time of worship with bible reading, hymn and prayer, and then time to chat while making craft, and enjoying afternoon tea together.
On Thursday at 11am is our next service at Perton Manor Care Home. Please do join the team if you are able as we serve residents and staff.
Church Christmas Meal
On Friday 8th December we will have our sumptuous Church Christmas Meal together. This year we are hosting this at the church with outside caterers providing our fine fare! The hope is that being at church makes it easier for families to attend as we don’t need to share the space, and can put on entertainment for children and adults. Our hope is that most will be able to come along and enjoy this lovely evening together. All are very welcome. We have decided that all children under 16 will be free, and we wouldn’t want anybody to be unable to come due to the cost. Some members of the church family have given more in order to enable others to be with us, so please do come to this fun festive time together.
**** Next Week ****

On Thursday 23rd November at 11am. if you’re available, do come along to this lovely midweek service.

On Sunday 26th November is our next 4th @ 4 service of contemporary worship, bible discussion and prayer.

Delivering Prayer Cards Each Week

Please see the sign-up sheet in the vestibule to put your name against one or more weeks over the next year.
