This week’s news

Welcome to this morning’s family service the service leader and speaker is Ed Jones. Tea and coffee will be served in the back hall before the service. After the service there is a bring and share fellowship lunch to which everyone is invited.

A prayer meeting, to which everyone is invited, is held every Sunday morning from approx 10.00 am -10.15 am in the upstairs room. We would encourage all who are taking part in the service and youth activities to attend.

Tea and Coffee Rota – Rob Lamb and Ali Mather are responsible for tea and coffee today. Next week it will be Gavin Fuller and Ann Frost. If you swap with someone can you please let Sheila Little know so that the correct person can be included in the notices.

 Prayer If you would like someone to pray with you after the service Anne and Philip Reeve will be available.

  Hayley Hammond Sarah and Francis Hammond are pleased to announce the engagement of Hayley to Joshua Green. Apparently there was a romantic proposal in Rome and Hayley said “yes”. We send our congratulations to them both.

Message from Louise concerning John. “John felt ill again on Monday but after a strong course of drugs his stomach is back to normal, so thank God for that. He continued to work regardless, which was so important as they needed to prepare for a plane full of aid on Tuesday. Communication hasn’t been as good this week with the hotel WiFi playing up and so it’s been hard getting detailed up-dates but continue to pray for health for the team and that the aid is able to get into Nepal without being held up by border controls or adverse weather.”

 An afternoon at Hyde Hall Please sign up (and ideally bring a friend too) for a horticultural experience on Monday 20 July. We will be leaving Fullbridge at 1.45 and returning by 5pm. We will be travelling by coach and the subsidised cost is £8, this includes coach fare and entry.  Please book a place with Andrew or Rachel – places will go on a first-come, first served basis.  Wheelchair companions/Carers of a Disabled person go free.
