MESSY CHURCH - this is a very important part of our outreach as a church and we would love to see God do even more with the people who come along. We believe that prayer is the key to this and would like to ask if there are people who will pledge to pray for Messy Church on a very regular basis and who we could update regularly. If you would like to commit to praying then please sign the list and we will get in touch with you with more helpful information for your prayers.

LOVE HUTTON - This week cards have been delivered to: Oldmixon Road (to 67), Copse Close and upper part of Winterstoke Road. Please pray for the people who live there. Pray that people may respond and contact us.

FILL THE GAP! Every week we need £890 to break even as a church - but we only receive £800. If you don’t give a planned amount regularly, please pray about this. (See the table on the blue giving leaflet available in church). If you do give, then prayerfully look at what you give and increase or decrease it accordingly, For giving envelopes, gift aid and standing order forms, please see Mike Turnbull. Let’s fill the gap and more! Thank - you. Anne.
