If you missed our Harvest services last week, our Harvest Appeal for The Tent of Nations near Bethlehem is still open! Envelopes are on the table, if you wish to Gift Aid please put your name or offertory envelope number on the back.
Our donations will help to replace more than 1500 apricot and apple trees as well as grape vines which were planted 14 years ago, they were destroyed in 2014 by Israeli bulldozers.
Another way to support ‘The Tent of Nation’s’ is by purchasing a Harvest Mug designed by members of our Junior Church; there are six designs to choose from! They cost £10. Why not get one for yourself!? The mugs are on the back table, to order a mug add your name to the list stating which design you want.
Christmas Cards! It’s that time of year again; I have already started to make cards and they will be on sale from the beginning of November (hopefully).
If anyone would like to order a particular Christmas card please let me have the order by the end of October, to allow me enough time to make all the orders. Thanks! Colleen
A message to all who have Leprosy Mission Boxes. Please can they be brought in and given to Pat. The money collected is used to help people in 30 Leprosy-affected countries. What is leprosy?
What is Leprosy? Leprosy is a mildly infectious disease associated with poverty. It is easily cured. Leprosy starts by damaging the small nerves on the skin’s surface resulting in a loss of sensation.
Without the gift of pain, everyday activities are fraught with danger. Unnoticed burns and ulcers can lead to permanent disability. Due to the inability to detect grit in the eye, blindness is a common consequence of leprosy.
If you would like to contribute to the Leprosy Mission ask Pat for a box – single donations are also welcome.

Thought for the Week
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has his foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality. – Desmond Tutu.
