SERMON SERIES We have begun a 7 week series on the I am sayings of Jesus which tell us about who Jesus is and also how we should respond to Him. All the sermons will be available Here on the website if you miss them or wish to read them for yourselves.

LOVE HUTTON - This week cards will be delivered to: North Hills Close, Woodside. Please pray for the people who live there. Pray that people may respond and contact us.

KAREN WHEADON - Her funeral in church will be on Thurs 21st March at 2.30pm followed by a private committal at Ebdon Road. Please pray for Lin and her family and friends that the Lord will surround them all with His love and comfort.

LENT LUNCHES - Please come and join us! Once again, we are holding our Lent lunches as listed right. These are popular occasions when we come together to enjoy good simple food and enjoy friendship and fellowship. These events are open to everyone and all are most welcome, whether you worship in Hutton or not. We enjoy bread soup and cheese and make a donation which is sent to Christian Aid. In this way we raise money for those who are less fortunate than ourselves. If you would like a lift please ring Virginia 708924

MOTHERING SUNDAY - inviting people to come along with you to a service or events really works. Mothering Sunday offers us a great opportunity to do this. Please take a invitation flyer and invite a family member, friend or a neighbour to our Mothering Sunday services. Offer to meet them or pick them up and come along with you.

EASTER FLOWERS - Our church always looks even more amazing once our dedicated flower arrangers have been at work at Eastertime, but as we all know this comes at a cost. Flowers are quite expensive but it is a time when we can all contribute in some small way. If you would like to give money in remembrance of loved ones, or to celebrate an event, there will be a tin at the back of church and a list for you to share the reason for your donation. This will then be in church on Easter morning, another opportunity to give thanks. Many thanks.

PRAYER CASCADE - Kay would like to stand down from being a point of contact for the prayer cascade in Hutton. Would you like to be the replacement person for this important service? Please see Anne if you would like to do this - the ability to email is essential!

PRAYER REQUESTS. If you would like personal prayer on any Sunday please do make contact with Jane, Chris, Jean, Kay, Virginia, Jackie or Sue Orton, who will happily pray with you. If you would like a visit, please ring Virginia Hollis 708924 to arrange a visit.

ALPHA - please continue to pray for Alpha - there are now 16 people attending plus helpers. It is a great encouragement! We still need some people to supply a light lunch, people will be reimbursed for costs. Please sign the list in church or see Anne if you are able to help. You could always do this together with a friend as it is a lot of people to cater for.

Will you take on the Bishops’ Lent Challenge? LIVING WELL IN GOD’S WORLD: appreciation, concern, responsibility, incarnation, love, new creation. Sign up for challenges, readings, prayer and reflection direct to your inbox or download resources at: This Week - Creation is groaning. Challenges to choose from: _Take one of your journeys in a different way this week. Could you take public transport and/or walk to work, school or church? Or try cycling one or two days a week? _Drive greener! Under-inflated tyres increase your fuel consumption. Air conditioning uses extra fuel. Remove heavy items, roof-racks and roof boxes unless you need them for the trip. Drive smoothly – braking and accelerating waste fuel. Driving at 50-60 mph means your emissions will be lowest, with up to 25% higher emissions at 70mph.

PRAYER CHAIN - If you need prayer for yourself or another then there is a team of people ready to pray. For Locking, please contact Christine Sceeny phone 822331 or for Hutton Kay Cole phone 811424 and they will send out the prayer request. It would be lovely to know how the person we are praying for is getting on, or whether they still need more prayer. It is a great encouragement for us all to hear that God is answering our prayers, please send feedback to Christine or Kay. Thank you.
