OURSE FOR LENT - this is not a Lent course but a course that other churches are doing over Lent. We are wanting to help people be able to tell their story. This course called ‘Faith Pictures’ will help us gain in confidence. There is a video to watch and take home sheets. Please see page 8 of Hutton’s church magazine, or page 11 of Locking’s Crosslinks for more information.

GEOFF HOBDEN has gone out to Nepal with 11 other men. Some will be helping with building a school that was damaged in the earthquakes. Money had already been raised for a brick making machine, so building is getting well advanced, but electrics and carpentry skills are needed. Equipment to set up a sound studio has also been transported there. They are hoping to get a football pitch built too. This trip is all under the umbrella of ‘Sheva’ charity formed some years ago. It is not a Christian foundation but Geoff is going to a church on Saturday (the day when they worship). It will be interesting to hear his stories on his return. Please pray for Geoff and the others while they are over there for: safety, fun and getting lots of work completed.

MEN’S BREAKFAST on Saturday 10th March at 9am in Locking Church Centre. Please take an invite and invite your male friends.

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.
