Notices for Say the 5th

Welcome to our all age service.  Today our service will include two (yes two!) baptisms as both Caitlin and Esmae will be baptised.  As you can imagine, this is a really exciting event in the life of our Fellowship!

After the service we will be sharing lunch together – we would encourage you to join us and ask that you bring a contribution of food to add to the table.

Also, help is needed today to set up and clear away after the fellowship lunch. The home groups responsible will be Shirley Murphy’s old group and the old Wednesday group.

We are planning to have bring and share lunches on alternate months and we will be asking people from two nominated home groups to help each time.

Tea and Coffee rota  Rob Bennett and Rob Lamb are responsible for tea and coffee today and next week it will be Carolyn and Gavin.

A Prayer meeting is held in the upstairs youth room every Sunday morning before the service.  Everyone is invited to join us especially if you are involved in the service or with the children’s groups.  If you would like someone to pray with you after the service Ross and Bertie Power will be available.

Prayer requests   If you have any urgent prayer requests please email them to Michael Chambers.

 Phil and Doreen  would be grateful for your prayers as they lead the worship at Tollesbury Congregational  Church on Sunday morning.
