ALPHA COURSE After the success of Alpha this year another one will be starting on Wednesday 24th September at 10am in the green lounge. Alpha works by invitation and bringing people along with you. So come and join us if you have never done Alpha. And also come along and bring a friend, family member or neighbour. It is very informal and relaxed. Please let Anne know if you are coming. This is another opportunity to grow God's kingdom.

I have had a letter from COMPASSION to tell us that Marc no longer needs support from Comapassion as his family circumstances have changed and they are able to support him. We have been sponsoring Marc for 9 years. Compassion have asked if we wish to take on another child as well as Abonesh who we currently sponsor. I don't have an easy answer for this. We used to have 36 sponsors for the two children, but currently have 27. I would like to know: a) if anyone would wish to end their support of this charity b) opinions generally on the way we should proceed. Clearly until I know this I am unable to work out what future contributions would be. Please let me know what you think. Thank you. Kay.

PLEASE PRAY for the family and friends of Beatrice Stafford, who died recently. Her funeral will take place at Weston crematorium on Tuesday 1st October at 12.30pm.

PRAYER MEETING - Wednesday 2.30pm 9th October at the home of Diane Harvey, 23, Bisdee Road, Hutton, BS24 9QU. Everyone welcome to come and pray for the church and the nation.

PRAYER REQUESTS. If you would like personal prayer on any Sunday please do just make contact with Jane, Chris or Virginia, who will happily pray with you. If you have an urgent request for prayer or you would like a visit, please ring Kay Cole 811424 to send a prayer request to the prayer cascade or Virginia Hollis 708924 to arrange a visit.

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 Sceenyphone 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.

WELCOME! As from 2nd September we will be having an ordinand with us in the Benefice. An ordinand is someone who has been recommended for training to be ordained. She will be starting her full - time training at Sarum College with myself as her training supervisor. She is called Larissa Trust, married to Robert and they have 3 children. She will be with us throughout the whole of her 2 years training and will spend one day a week in the benefice and also one morning in church. Please note that this is very different from having a curate and also as with a curate she is not here to help me but to be trained and for me to support both her and her family. Please welcome her and her family when they are with us.

SOMEWHERE TO GO provides a safe, non-judgmental place for those who need support, advice, a friendly ear and it has been a crutch to many people who have been lost, lonely and at crisis points in their lives. Hot meals, access to a shower and medical help is provided 3 days a week. We rely entirely on donations and urgently require sleeping bags and funds. Please contact Mike or Margaret Cooper in Locking if you can help (Tel 822408), thank you.
