Home Group questions

  1. Is lying, including so-called white lies, ever justified?
    2. Why does God choose to use sinful men and women?
    3. Why does the Bible describe David as “a man after God’s        own heart?”
    4. Why is the OT important for NT believers?
    5. Is the Sermon on the Mount contradictory to the law of the OT?

Othona 19th June   Please pay today by putting your £10 per adult into an envelope with your name and “Othona” on it.  If you have any empty 2 litre bottles please bring them on the day.  Car sharing and directions are being organised by home group co-ordinators.  Thank-you.

Recycling  With the new system across the District, please note that the box in the kitchen is now for paper, card, plastics, tins and juice cartons.  This is emptied into the pink bags and these in turn go into the blue wheelie bin.  Glass is still put in the “Glass” box” and rubbish in the black sacks that now go into the grey   wheelie.  Your co-operation in this is much appreciated.  Andrew (i/c rubbish @ Fullbridge)!

 Outing to Beth Chatto gardens  There are still spaces if you would like to join us on the 18th July for a trip to the lovely Beth Chatto gardens and tearoom.  See Andrew about this as soon as possible.

 

The June Missionary offering amounted to £585 which has been rounded up and £400 has been sent to Tim and Jenny Gooding and £400 to Operation Brotherly Love.

Gift for Kings Cross Outreach As part of Hannah Henderson’s degree course, she has been working with a London City Mission street missionary who reaches out to women in the Kings Cross area of London. We are sending them a gift of £100 to replace a stolen ‘pamper kit’.  This has and can be again used to provide a ‘Mini Spa’ experience for the women on Tuesday evenings.  It includes a shoulder massage from one of the Chinese students, a hand and arm massage and a manicure and nail polish session from the rest of us.  Hannah says that “the women love this and we are able to have some great conversations, reading from the Bible, praying and generally sharing God’s love for each of the ‘customers’ whilst providing this ‘service’.”

Please pray that this will continue to bless these women and show in a practical way God’s love for them.

 Hannah has emailed to say WOW!!! Thank you SO much Fullbridge.  I am really very grateful.  The women will be so thrilled to be able to have this “service” back.  We have always found these quiet relaxed one-to-one times really useful and often times when the women open up a bit more to us.  With love Hannah.

We have three groups:

Mustard: an Early Years group, who meet upstairs.

Pepper and Mustard+  Infant and Junior groups, for up to secondary school age, who meet downstairs in the back hall.

Salt: a group for School Years 7 to 11, upstairs in the Youth Room on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.
