MESSY CHURCH. Thank you to everyone who helped and provided food, it was a good time meeting Shyone and Whatsup the Messy Detectives!

MONTHLY PRAYER MEETING on Sat 7th Oct at 10.00am in church. All welcome. Following meetings on 4th Nov and 2nd Dec.

It is with sadness to share the news that Julie Bradley’s sister Gill died last week. Please pray for Julie and her family at this time. We have also heard that their daughter Kirsten has had her baby last week.

EXPENSES During August church expenses were £3,400; income amounted to £1,760; resulting in a loss on the month of £1,680. To recover this loss receipts from all sources would have to increase by 100%, and this includes your contribution.

SCREEN & PROJECTOR - at the PCC this month it was agreed to apply for a faculty to install a data projector, screen and monitors into the church. This will be used for baptism services, morning worship and school services. It will also enable powerpoints, which will dramatically reduce the amount of paper we use and will be able to play DVD's easily. It will enable greater flexibility and creativity in worship. The installation of this will cost £7,000 aprox. If anyone would be interested in making a donation towards the cost of this then please see Mike Turnbull or one of the wardens.

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.

WESTON FOODBANK. They write: Thank you so much for your ongoing support over the past 12 months. In 2016 we provided food for over 4,000 members of our community, including 1,400 children. This was a tremendous increase compared to previous years and this trend is likely to continue. At the moment, we are particularly short of: Tinned vegetables and potatoes, tinned tomatoes and pasta sauce, long life milk, tinned fruit and custard, tinned spaghetti, biscuits or snack items. Thank you for your continued support. Please leave any non-perishable goods in the box in the porch for Locking and by the font for Hutton.

PRAYER FOR THE BENEFICE. There is a diocesan strategy ‘To place mission and evangelism at the heart of everything we do’. To this end it would be good to use this prayer, issued by the diocese: A prayer for Shaping our Future. Gracious God, may your Holy Spirit guide us into the future. Help us, throughout the diocese, to show uninhibited reliance on your grace and power as we seek renewal of our lives. Give us courage, rigour, imagination and generosity in order that your kingdom may come and your abundant life be known by all. Amen.
