We welcome everyone who joins us for worship today, especially if you are a visitor, worshipping with us for the first time or if you have not been with us for a while through ill health.
We welcome Phil back from his travels this morning and hope he’s had a great time away. Thanks for the mini-updates we’ve had over the last few weeks Phil. I’m sure we will hear lots more over the next few weeks about what he’s been up to.
Fairtrade tea and coffee will be served after this morning’s service, and the Traidcraft stall will be open with handmade cards on sale. Please take this opportunity to see what is available and enjoy some light refreshments in the company of friends.
As always the Copper pot is on the table at the back of the church waiting for your coppers, which will eventually benefit local charities.

Ade’s Tandem Sky Dive – Just a final (?) reminder to all those who sponsored Ade to please pay up as soon as possible! I think the sheet should still be on the table at the back, but if not, please have a word with Ade. Hopefully she will be able to tell us how much she raised in total.
News Sheets – You’ll be pleased to hear that next week’s news sheet will be back to its usual standard as the staff have now returned from the Spanish office ……. No doubt they’ll be off there again soon, so enjoy it while you can and please send any info for inclusion in next week’s sheet to Marcia as usual.

Thought for the Week
Grant that I may not pray alone with the mouth; help me that I may pray from the depths of my heart.
